Remember the player who landed a field goal in the final minute of a match a few years back to see their team go down by 1 .......... the great Terry Lamb!
I was there that day at Belmore.
Will never forget it...

Me too.
Neither will I.

Worse, I was with then Knights Chairman, Michael Hill.
We looked at each other with a ‘What the...’ look.
As that sinking feeling grew for me, he just laughed.

There were jokes that Baa had a FootyTab collect but he swore he thought it was 12-all when I asked him about it a couple of years later.

I was there with my father and he just said something about having to have another beer at the club.

But was it their first time winning without cheating the Salary Cap? Or even the first time without cheating period?

Bulldogs won three games in a row by a field goal.

2014.

Rounds 5-7

Against NZ warriors, Rabbits & Newcastle
Has anybody (in the modern field goal era) scored 2 or more field goals to win a match more than Trent Hodkinson?

Round 5 1982 The first & only 0-all draw in NRL history


There has also been a test with the same result


AND in that series in the 4th test it was England 3-0

You probably wanted your money back for that series.

You'd cop a three year suspension for that now.
Plus a jail sentence. Funny how no one on the field bothered to check on the welfare of the guy lying on ground, instead making a bee line for the tackler...

Useless fact NOT related to rugby league. Frank Forde was our Prime Minister for a whole 7 days in 1945.
