The Key Numbers from Panthers Clash

The Panthers led for the entire contest, but a late try to Moses Mbye and a clutch conversion from debutant Kerrod Holland meant the Bulldogs stole victory in Round 2.

After a clinical display in round one against the Manly Sea Eagles, the Bulldogs made it very hard for themselves at the foot of the mountains and although it was ugly at times, walking away with the two points and starting a season with back-to-back wins for the first time since 2012 will please Coach Des Hasler and the players.

Statistically, the Panthers were the better side, but desperation, hunger and calmness fell the way of the Bulldogs.
