    No idea who is still on the books just yet thanks to the club being useless.

    The Holden cup squad has never been taken seriously by the club. They just make up the numbers.
    The young guys, irrespective how good they might be, never ever get a chance to progress. ( Supercoach influence)
    Also the club has never appointed a creditable coach.

    The Dogs website has never shown a full list of their 20s players since 20s have been around. How hard is it??? The players all have contracts, they are at training 4/5 days a week - surely some one could take a photo of them, and list a few facts like where they come from etc. Take a look at West Tigers site - all the kids are up there now. Why cant the NRL make every club list their contracted players. Thank God for Mitch - his list we'll be the closest we'll get to see who's who.

    I'm a Bulldogs tragic - I watch and have watched Harold Matts SgBall for years - way back when it was SGball, Jersey Flegg and Presidents Cup as the Jun rep teams. Recently I contacted the club asking about trials, etc - when I pointed out that it would be good to have such info on the website the reply was - "no one really cares about anything except first grade" - sums up the club culture. -I pointed out that a lot of people support the "CLUB" - which includes all grades. As I was pissed with the attitude and answer I pointed out that for years the profiles have been out of date and generally the club treats the general non corporate supporters like shit. Reply was equally pathetic
    On a positive the Junior trials and the one NYC trial have been better this year than over the last three or four years - far more competitive. Doesn't mean much except at the end of the games I didn't leave thinking they were a level or two below the opposition. Might still turn out that way though.

    @Mitch Connor do you know if Luis Strickland is still with the club?

    Heard and seen nothing of him in the pre season, which is strange as him and Miller should have been promoted.

    Haven't seen anything to think otherwise?

    Signed on a 2 year deal straight out of SG Ball so is still young. Should be the main 20's backrower this year and it'll determine whether we keep him or not.

    Congrats to Reimis Smith on his selection in the Auckland 9's.

    Is the DOB of D'Rhys Miller correct?

    Didn't realise D'Rhys was Fijian!

    Our 2017 NYC squad profiles will be updated.... in about 2025 I reckon.
