Last Time Played: Bulldogs v Knights

Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs v Newcastle Knights
Round 25, 2011
ANZ Stadium

The Bulldogs trailed the Knights 22-6 at halftime in their Round 25 clash at ANZ Stadium last year before piling on 26 unanswered points to notch a stunning 32-22 comeback victory.

The ’Dogs were woeful in the first 40, completing just five of 13 sets and gifting the Knights a whopping 70 per cent of possession. But then the Knights shut up shop and started dropping off tackles – missing 45 in the second stanza alone.

Five rapid-fire tries from the 45th minute, including a double to Ben Barba, sealed the deal for the blue-and-whites who were best served by centres Jamal Idris and Josh Morris (139 metres), as well as prop Aiden Tolman (110 metres, 36 tackles). Newcastle halfback Jarrod Mullen set up both his side’s tries.
