Canterbury dominated Newcastle in their trial match, with the home side winning 56-8 at Belmore Sportsground on Saturday.
While the Knights fielded a NSW Cup side, Bulldogs coach Des Hasler gave game time to the likes of Greg Eastwood, Frank Pritchard, Sam Kasiano and Kangaroos forward Josh Jackson.
Jackson, who has had a shortened pre-season leading into the 2015 NRL Telstra Premiership, was content with his first outing.
"I thought the boys played well together. It was a pretty good first hit-out," Jackson told Bulldogs TV.
"There's always things to improve on, but I thought we defended pretty well."
