Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs vs Penrith Panthers: Five things we learned
The Bulldogs registered their first win of the 2018 season with a shock 20-18 triumph over the Panthers, but what did we learn from the 80 minutes?
One side was undefeated, the other hadn’t notched a win but it was far from clear-cut as the Bulldogs stood tall on a night where they paid tribute to the late, great Steve Folkes.
The fast-starting Bulldogs held off a late Penrith challenge but the comeback kings of the NRL couldn’t manage it for a third straight week as the Bulldogs snare two vital competition points.
Penrith will also spend the week fretting over the health of star halfback Nathan Cleary who went off with a possible MCL strain at half-time.
