Canterbury Bulldogs Live Streaming
Due to the addition of James Graham to the ranks of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs NRL team and featuring in some big matches including a Grand Final recently, the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have gained a large following in the UK but watching their games live can be difficult and often means having to pay extra subscriptions on top of your already expensive pay-tv contract.
There is nothing quite like watching Rugby League live and in person but when it comes to the NRL, the premier rugby league competition; the logistics make that impossible apart from a lucky few.

Canterbury Bulldogs NRL
Known traditionally as the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs but mostly referred as the Canterbury Bulldogs or even just as Canterbury or the Doggies, it does not matter what you known the team as they can be no mistaking their white and playing strip.
Canterbury are one of the oldest rugby clubs in the southern hemisphere and still continue to represent the suburb of Belmore, where the club have their historical roots, despite now moving around the city of Sydney and having fans from across New South Wales and even further afield.
Canterbury are based in the city of Sydney in the state of New South Wales in Australia and whilst they were originally based in the suburb of Belmore, they now play matches throughout the city and represent Sydney as a whole.
The Doggies now use a number of stadium throughout Sydney although Belmore Sports Ground will always be home to them.
After going for quite some time without playing at Belmore, the club have now started to take a select number of matches to the stadium that can host around 19,000 and gives a great atmosphere.
The ground also features the unique sight and sounds of trains going past behind the sticks.
The club also play a number of matches at the iconic ANZ Stadium, which was the main stadium for the 2000 Sydney Olympics and whilst a stadium with a capacity of over 80,000 fans is quite clary often too large for the club, when it comes to big derby games and end of season finals, the ground is full and creates a great atmosphere and spectacle.
The cub have also started to play matches at the impressive Bankwest Stadium which is one of the most modern medium sized rugby stadiums in the world.
Due to the history of the Canterbury Bulldogs and the prestige of the club plus its location in the capital of Rugby League in Australia, it is no surprise that the Doggies have a number of rivalries with other Sydney based teams.
The biggest rivals of the Doggies are the Parramatta Eels due to both clubs traditional homes been close to each other. This is one of the oldest and fiercest rivalries in the sport and guarantees huge attendance and great atmosphere whenever the two face off.
They also have a long standing rivalry with the Sydney Roosters, who they have had a number of famous battles with down the years, with Canterbury winning their first ever Premiership against the Eastern Suburbs (the forerunner of the Roosters).
Another historic Sydney club have a rivalry with the Doggies as the St George Illawarra Dragons also have a long and intertwined history with Canterbury.
The final club that they have a rivalry with is yet another historic Sydney based team in the South Sydney Rabbitohs, with the 2 clubs traditionally meeting in a big Easter derby day clash that always has a huge crowd and one of the loudest of the season.
Colours / Playing Kit
The club are now famed for their white and blue playing strip which normally features a mostly white shirt with a large blue chevron but the club initially started with blue and white horizontal stripes.
This makes the club easy to recognise whenever they are on the field and also allows them to often where there traditional colours on the road.
Canterbury were established way back in September 1934 and it only took them 4 years of playing in the Premiership to win their first title and from then on, the club have gone onto to enjoy lots of success.
From multiple Premiership titles to a number time finishing runners up to lots of minor Premierships and sadly even wooden spoons, the club have picked up all that there is to win in the sport domestically.
As you would expect from one of the biggest clubs in the world of rugby, Canterbury have featured many of the stars of the game in their line ups including the likes of the iconic and history making Lebanese star Hazem El Masri, England’s James Graham and Luke Thompson, Willie Tonga, Michael Ennis, Greg Eastwood, Willie Mason and duel code star Sonny Bill Williams.
Up until the 1970’s the club had a number of nicknames including the CB’s, the Cantabs and the Berries but with the change to the Bulldogs moniker, the club now have a number of new nicknames including the Dogs, the Doggies, the Dogs of War, the Family Club, the Entertainers and of course simply the Bulldogs.
