The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have been the pride of Belmore for eons. A family club, the Bulldogs approach their footy with a true sense of camaraderie and have earned the moniker ‘the Dogs of War’ due to their traditionally hard-nosed approach to the game.
Whilst the last few years haven’t been kind to Bulldogs fans, it wasn’t too long ago they were an NRL powerhouse. Two grand final appearances in three years (2012 and 2014) and sustained finals appearances up until 2016 had them well-positioned as one of the biggest sporting brands in the country. A much-needed rebuild has begun with Trent Barrett continuing to scoop up top talent for 2022, but there is still plenty to play for in 2021.
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 2021 Preview
Despite a number of high profile signings in 2021 such as Australian and NSW representative Nick Cotric, Queensland Origin rep Corey Allan, former Panther’s firebrand Jack Hetherington and former Cooper Cronk heir-apparent Kyle Flanagan, the season has not gone to plan for Trent Barrett. Much like 2020, the Bulldogs have once again found themselves rooted to the bottom of the table throughout 2021.
It hasn’t been for a lack of effort though. The Bulldogs have been competitive in plenty of matches throughout the season and their forwards have typically put up a strong fight, but their halves have really struggled to date. With Matt Burton on his way in 2022, there’s pressure on the struggling Flanagan and the off-contract Lachlan Lewis. Both players will be looking to impress the new General Manager of Football Phil Gould, who has publicly challenged players within the squad to lift as the season closes out and play quite literally for their futures at the club.
With 13 players off contract heading into next season you can guarantee the Dogs will be barking, clawing, potentially even biting (looking at you James Graham) their way out of their current predicament to avoid their first wooden spoon since 2008 and secure a place in the new-look squad for 2022. It’s drama at its finest.
Canterbury Bulldogs game and TV broadcast guide
Fortunately, there are several options for watching the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs live in Australia, including the Nine Network, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra and Kayo Sports. Network Nine is the official NRL free to air broadcaster and will show a select number of Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs’ matches live during the 2021 Premiership season across channel Nine and 9Now. Nine’s TV coverage is headed by Erin Moran, alongside a commentary team made up of Andrew Johns, Billy Slater and James Bracey. Nine also offers live streaming options during the 2021 NRL season with the 9Now app, but these are limited to the games they broadcast and do not offer full match replays.
For comparison and as shown in the TV schedule below, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra, and Kayo Sports will televise all 25 rounds of Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs matches during the 2021 Premiership season. That’s every Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs game in every scheduled round shown live with no ad-breaks during play, on the dedicated Fox League channel.
As well as these live matches and the option to watch replays at a later time, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra and Kayo Sports will also have a wide range of NRL programming that includes NRL Tonight, The Big League Wrap and the Late Show with Matty Johns. There are lots of new faces in the studio this season as every live game will be fronted by Yvonne Sampson, Lara Pitt and Jess Yates, as they step up from smaller league shows. Post-match analysis has also been freshened up and now includes a former NRL giant in the shape of Cooper Cronk.
