Grudge Match: Bulldogs vs Manly

Billed by everyone as a grudge match, I watched the lead up to this great match unfold via the media and it seemed to me that the Bulldogs taunt was relentless. Dez Hasler was coming face to face with the team he uncerimoniously dumped last season to take the reigns at the Bulldogs and it wasnt gonna be pretty.

Canterbury coach Des Hasler was put to the sword by his former assistant Geoff Toovey as Manly edged out the Bulldogs 12-10 in an absorbing NRL encounter on Friday night.

Fulltime Manly 12 Bulldogs 10

The boys tried so hard it was a tough match with a glimmer of hope in the last few mins when the doggies scored a try & conversion & we were hoping that momentum would prove positive to take em to victory but it wasnt to be. Still, proud of the doggies they worked so hard.

Afterwards we went to that delish place Cheeky Chocolate to chill & sample their wares. Jennifer ordered a gin and tonic, I had 1 Cosmopolitan & I was quite warm and happy lol Sis ordered this beautiful profiterole cake which came to our table exquisitely presented as a flower.

Below is my video of half time entertainment & a slideshow of pics from the evening.
