Foxsports has the latest defeat by the men in green:

SAM Perrett scored a hat-trick as the Canterbury Bulldogs dealt a significant blow to the Canberra Raiders’ finals hopes with a 28-16 win in the nation’s capital.

The Bulldogs’ Josh Morris was brilliant at fullback for the injured Ben Barba, scoring the first try of the match and chiming in to assist Perrett in his triple.

While the Raiders would have been ruing the pre-match losses of attacking weapons Terry Campese and Blake Ferguson, it was their shaky fringe defence that was their undoing.

The home side were denied tries three times in the first half by the video referee, the Bulldogs rubbing salt into the wounds by scoring from the following set on each occasion.

Ahh. The bulldogs. That explains the bloke openly pissing on the letterboxes of one of the Braybrooke street complexes, 2 bundy and cokes rested on top. Your normal raiders fan usually urinates on the courtyards of the ground floor apartment dwellers.

So much respect for the community…
