Bulldogs beat Cronulla

5:54 am on 16 August 2011

A Trent Hodkinson field goal two minutes from time confirmed a desperately needed two competition points, the Bulldogs now just one win behind eight-placed Newcastle with three rounds remaining.

However it was hardly the sort of performance to send a shiver up the spines of this year's genuine title contenders.
