Bulldogs boilover in Jersey Flegg Cup
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have scored a crucial 28-12 victory over top four hopefuls Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in their Round 6 Jersey Flegg Cup clash at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.
The Bulldogs gained the early momentum when lock Kurtis Morrin scored just ten minutes into the contest. Sharks fullback Kade Dykes levelled the scores in the 23rd minute, which was quickly followed with a try to winger Sam Stonestreet for an 8-6 lead.
Canterbury-Bankstown were able to retain their two-point lead going into halftime as James Valevatu ran in for a try less than five minutes before the break.
Right from the outset in the second half, the Bulldogs extended their lead to 28-8 after a brace to fullback Johnny Lee Gabrael and a four-pointer to Eli Clark. Dykes scored a second try late on to round out the 28-12 scoreline.
