The clubs name is the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldog, although they are known to most simply as the Canterbury Bulldogs, or even as the Doggies.
Down the years they have gone by other names including the Sydney Bulldogs and just as the Bulldogs but no matter what you know the Belmore club as, they are always easy to recognise whenever they take to the field due to their iconic blue and white playing strip.
Just 13 years after junior Rugby League was established in the region, the Canterbury club were admitted into the New South Wales Rugby Football League (NSWRFL) Premiership in 1935.
The early years for the then rural club was period of almost instant success as they picked up their first ever Premiership title in 1938, and they would go onto to back that up just 4 years alter with a second league title in 1942.
Unfortunately that was to be it for quite some time for the Doggies who would go on a 38 year drought without a Premiership title but that almost ended in stunning fashion when they faced off against St George in the 1967.
It was in the 1978 seaosn when Canterbury took on the nickname of the Bulldogs, with it been chosen as it represented the determination and grit the team were known for.
It seemed to work in their favour as the club returned to the Grand Final in 1979 and although they came up short, it didn’t take long for them to get over it as they would go one better the next seaosn to pick up a Premiership title once again in 1980.
That win would go on to kick start the golden era for the blue and whites as they would also pick up league titles in 1984, 1985 and 1988.
The 1990’s was a much more turbulent time for the club and for the sport in general as the Super League Wars hit home.
The Dogs would go onto join the breakaway league but they soon found themselves back in contention when joining the new combined National Rugby League (NRL) as they would go onto reach the 1998 Grand Final, but they would lose to the Broncos.
The next few years was a struggle before they were found to have cheated the salary cap in 2002 and docked all of their points, leading to their first wooden spoon since 1964.
The next season was much better and saw Canterbury make an appearance in the end of season play-offs once again and that proved to be the catalyst for the 2004 seaosn, where they would make it to the Grand Final and pick up another Premiership win against the Roosters.
There form dropped of the next season and they came nowhere near defending their title and by 2008, the club were finishing last once again.
The Doggies returned to their full name of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in 2010, the 75th anniversary season for the club.
In 2021, the club one their first minor Premiership since 1994 but they would lose the Grand Final to Melbourne.
Canterbury reached the 2014 Grand Final but they would come up short to rivals South Sydney in a season that saw the club win 3 consecutive matches by a single point.
