The Broncos narrowly got away with a win over the Bulldogs 22 to 20. But there was a controversial full time penalty, and an angry Canterbury coach.
Max Eagels reports.
The winning penalty from Jamayne Isaako concluded an eight point fight-back by the Broncos.
The’ve now won two on the trot and are sitting at sixth.
The fourteenth-placed Bulldogs continue a disappointing season, having lost five of their last six games, and the coach was not happy about the late penalty.
Dean Pay, Bulldogs Coach: “I got a group of blokes who’ve busted their arse in it tonight, to be decided like that, ridiculous.”
Meanwhile in the A-League, Melbourne Victory are confident heading into Saturday’s Grand Final with Newcastle Jets.
It’s the Victory’s third final in as many years.
Besart Berisha, Melbourne Victory: “The experience really important in this big game, everybody feeling good because they know back of mind they play many finals, and they feel good.”
But the Jets enter the final with a home advantage, just a year after they finished last on the table and took out the wooden spoon.
