How 2016 will go for…the Bulldogs

You would have to be an idiot to try and predict how a season will go for a team before a ball is even kicked. Luckily we have those in abundance here at kiwileaguecentral.com. Here is our bold, and probably completely wrong, guess at how season 2016 will go for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

With their first-choice fullback missing the opening four months of the competition, and a young halfback playing his first full year in the No.7 jersey, the Doggies experienced a few hiccups through 2016.

The forward pack was their biggest strength, and in the middle James Graham and Aiden Tolman adapted well to the reduction in the interchange, regularly playing big minutes.

Canterbury-Bankstown went on a run just before Origin, but an untimely some untimely suspensions and injury issues stalled their momentum through and immediately after the representative period.

Former Junior Warriors Bradley Abbey was a strong performer for the club’s NSW Cup side and makde his NRL debut late in the year.

Where they finished: 10th

Best player: Moses Mbye

Best NRL Fantasy player: Josh Jackson

Best recruit: Will Hopoate
