Game Review

A fine 3rd quarter of 6-2 to 1-1 would deliver 4 competition points that looked in severe doubt when the Bulldogs led by 27 points in the 2nd.

Whilst the Blues had a record of 13-2, a run of 6 consecutive wins and only 1 loss in 13 matches they had been severely tested for 4 weeks on end (all margins under 10 points) and a defeat seemed just around the corner.
