Flash back Friday: 1995 Grand Final

Take a walk down memory lane and re-live the 1995 Grand Final win as we countdown until our opening game of the 2016 season against the Manly Sea-Eagles.

Having finished in sixth place at the end of the regular season, the Bulldogs managed a history-making finals surge, winning three sudden death matches to make the grand final.

Their opponents were the Manly Sea-Eagkles, who finished the regular season with a 22-3 win/loss record.

Canterbury were ahead at half-time 6-4 and went on to score two more tries through Rod Silva and Glen Hughes.

At game’s end Terry Lamb enjoyed the rare honour of celebrating as a retiring victorious skipper, although he surprisingly returned for the 1996 season.

The Bulldogs celebrated their seventh premiership and Jim Dymock walked away with the Clive Churchill meda.
