History

For more details on this topic, see Bulldogs History.

In 1935, thirteen years after a meeting above "The Ideal Milk Bar" in Campsie created the Canterbury-Bankstown Junior Rugby League, the Canterbury-Bankstown club was admitted into the elite New South Wales Rugby Football League premiership. But right from the start the men who laid the foundations for the Bulldogs thrived on adversity. It took the new club, nicknamed "Country Bumpkins" because of their rural recruiting & CB emblem, just three years to win their first premiership in 1938. The grand final-winning effort was repeated again in 1942 before a 25-year drought set in. Main article: Bulldogs (rugby league team) // The Canterbury-Bankstown region in Sydneys outer southwest had a thriving rugby league culture and local competition in the 1920s and 30s and had applied repeatedly to join the Sydney competition from 1930 onwards, finally being successful in September 1934, and taking part...

In 1967, having ended the 11-year premiership reign of the great St.George by knocking them out in the final, "The Berries" as they were known at the time, went down to the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the grand final. But the return to the top end of the table set the scene for off-field restructuring that laid the foundations for the club to become one of the most consistent achievers in the remaining decades of the 20th century.

In 1978 Canterbury-Bankstown became known as "The Bulldogs". "Cantabs" "See Bees" & "Berries" were seen to be "soft" nicknames and the club wanted something to signify determination and grit. [citation needed] A grand final appearance in 1979 followed by a grand final win in 1980 with a young, enthusiastic and free-running side dubbed "The Entertainers", was the beginning of a golden era that was to produce three more grand final wins in the 80's: 1984, 1985 and 1988.

In the 1990s' Super League war, the Bulldogs aligned themselves with the rebel competition, playing the 1997 Super League premiership. In 1998 the Bulldogs came close to adding another trophy to the cabinet after battling their way to the Grand Final where they met the Brisbane Broncos and went down 38-12. On the way to the 1998 Grand Final, some people say the Bulldogs pulled off one of the most remarkable victories in the history of the game. After trailing by 16 points with ten minutes remaining, the Bulldogs got home 32-20 winners in extra time thanks to a brilliant try to Rod Silva and two pressure conversions from Daryl Halligan. The Super League war was a battle for the control of broadcast rights for the sport of Rugby League. ...

Despite the club's well-documented off-field dramas, the Bulldogs managed to maintain their focus on football and were rewarded with the ultimate prize when they held out arch-rivals the Sydney Roosters in a 16-13 thriller, the perfect ending for departing captain Steve Price and a fitting way to cap off the club's 70th anniversary season. Their eighth premiership trophy moved the club into a clear 5th place in the all-time tally. The Sydney Roosters is a professional rugby league club based in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, Australia. ... For the radio broadcaster, see Steve Price (broadcaster). ...


The Bulldogs were unable to mount a serious defence of the title in 2005 as injuries and contract negotiations saw the year start and finish on a sour note for the club. Due to the extent of injuries suffered, the team at times was unable to be at full-strength. [citation needed] This took its toll in the final six weeks of the season, the club suffering heavy losses and missing the finals series. In 2006, little was expected from the club after a lacklustre 2005 season, but despite some doubt over the strength of their side, the Bulldogs' impressive [neutrality disputed] forward pack helped them to a better than expected result for the year, finishing just a game short of the Grand Final, in which they lost to eventual premiers the Brisbane Broncos. 15 clubs contested the eighth NRL season, with the Wests Tigers winning their historic first premiership against the North Queensland Cowboys at the end of the finals. ...

Crest

The original Canterbury-Bankstown logo, used between 1935 and 1977.

The initial crest was a 'C-B' in a shield and nickname 'C-B's or (derisively) 'Country Bumpkins'. By the mid 1940s the club were nicknamed the Berries, a name which persisted until the 1978 season when the bulldog emblem was chosen. There have been at least two versions of the logo, although the latest version has seen two styles, the latest with larger 'Bulldogs' text to make it friendlier to the eye can be seen at the top of this page. The earlier style of the currently logo is characterised by smaller lettering. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ... Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...


The Bulldogs started life as Canterbury-Bankstown. The club had the semi-official nickname of the Berries up until 1978 when the name was changed to the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs. In the 1990s the official name was changed around a few times. From the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs, it went to the slightly grander title of the Sydney Bulldogs for two short seasons, and then returned to simply 'Canterbury', before becoming the geographically indistinct "Bulldogs" in 1999 - an attempt to broaden their appeal across the Rugby League community. Club president in 1999 Bob Hagan, claimed that dropping the geographical name of Canterbury would allow the team to gain broader support from outside the Canterbury-Bankstown area in the same way that Manchester United and Chicago Bulls are supported worldwide, the irony however is that the clubs that he had envisaged the Bulldogs emulating are both known by their geographical locations; Chicago and Manchester. Despite this, many supporters, TV and radio commentators continue to refer to them as 'Canterbury'.


Colours

The Bulldogs have played in predominantly blue and white strip since the club entered the league in 1935. The only exception to this was during the Second World War, when rationing meant they had to wear a maroon jersey with a blue 'V'.[1] Mushroom cloud from the nuclear explosion over Nagasaki rising 18 km into the air. ...


There have been three basic strip designs since the club's inception in the top flight league competition:

  • The Vintage Strip, which has been used recently in occasional 'heritage' matches, had navy and white irregular stripes ("butcher stripes") worn with black shorts. This was used from 1935 until at least 1962.
  • From 1970 to 1972, the club adopted a jersey featuring blue and white hoops. This reverted to the 'V Strip' from 1973 onwards.
  • The 'V' Strip was first used sometime before 1965. This consisted of a predominantly white jersey featuring a blue chevron ('V') on the chest with a blue saddle over the shoulders worn with blue shorts. The current design is a more stylised with the chevron having a concave shape. The club also has an away strip in which the blue and white are reversed. There was an alternate design in the late 90s where the 'V' strip had a grey trim and was worn with white shorts.

Stadium

General view of Telstra Stadium, Homebush.

In their inaugural season, very few home matches were allocated to the Canterbury-Bankstown club. However, when the opportunity arose the club took their matches to either Marrackville or Pratten Park. This was from the following season on when the club began to base itself at Belmore Sports Ground. The club had a long-time affinity with the ground and stayed there continuously until 1994.

In 1995 when the Super League War began to come about, the club changed its playing name to the "Sydney Bulldogs" in an attempt to broaden its fan base and played matches at Parramatta Stadium where spectator facilities were of a higher class. This move payed off with the club going on to become premiers that season. However, the club reverted its name for the 1996 season and once again played matches out of Belmore Sports Ground; something that lasted up until the inaugural National Rugby League season of 1998.

Once the new Stadium Australia had been finished and opened in preparation for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, the club began to play matches there between 1999 and 2000. From 2001 to 2005, the club then began to play matches out of the new Sydney Showground at Homebush, with bigger matches played out of the now-Telstra Stadium from 2003. When fans began to complain about the poor quality of the venue as a rugby league ground, the club eventually decided to move all future home matches to Telstra Stadium, which has remained the case to date.

Supporters

The Bulldogs predominantly draw on a support base in and around the suburbs of Canterbury and Bankstown in South-Western Sydney and regularly attract home match attendances that are above the average level for National Rugby League clubs, with attendances at Telstra Stadium averaging more than 18,000 for the 2006 season.

The multicultural demographics of the suburbs in the club's support base, such as Lakemba, means the club has a large number of supporters from a range of non-English speaking backgrounds. In recent years the club has become particularly identified in the media with the Lebanese-Australian community, particularly with the club's star goalkicker, Hazem El Masri, being of a Lebanese background.[2] Multiculturalism or cultural pluralism is a policy, ideal, or reality that emphasizes the unique characteristics of different cultures in the world, especially as they relate to one another in immigrant receiving nations. ...

In recent years, the club has been in trouble following a number of supporter-related incidents at both home and away Bulldogs matches, including bottle-throwing, fighting and damage to stadium seating. In 2005, a firecracker let off at a match caused players from both the Bulldogs and the Brisbane Broncos to be temporarily distracted from the game. [citation needed] Incidents like these led to Chas Licciardello to do a skit for the ABC TV show The Chaser's War on Everything by offering to sell "Bulldog-branded" merchandise such as balaclavas and knuckle dusters, for which there was some public outcry.

Rivalries

The Bulldogs and their fans have built up rivalries with other clubs, particularly the Parramatta Eels, which began in the 1980s when the two sides were the strongest in the competition. Canterbury and Parramatta each won four premierships during this decade, and faced one another in two Grand Finals (1984 and 1986) as well as regular play-off matches. This rivalry received renewed impetus during the Super League war when Parramatta recruited four notable Bulldogs players in Jim Dymock, Jason Smith, Jarrod McCracken and Dean Pay.

The club's largest win occurred in 1995 when they played as the "Sydney Bulldogs." In a match against the newly-formed North Queensland Cowboys, the Bulldogs won 66–4. In the club's first season in 1935 they were subject to the two heaviest defeats in competition history two weeks in succession. Firstly, they lost to St. George 91–6 and the following week to Eastern Suburbs 80–7. However, despite these big losses, the club was able to secure their first premiership 3 years later in 1938 in the Grand Final against Eastern Suburbs; at the same time setting the record for becoming the quickest non-foundation club to win a title.
