The time has come for the Canterbury Bulldogs to finally turn things around in 2024.

Simply said, the time for excuses has passed. The club has added innumerable players, and this is quickly becoming a roster that second-year coach Cameron Ciraldo and seasoned head coach Phil Gould  can claim to have created.

This means that performances must be expected. Gould was always realistic about the Bulldogs’ potential in 2023 as they rebuilt. Injuries and bans hampered the club even more, but they have assembled a roster with plenty of depth for 2024.

The Belmore-based side has undoubtedly been mocked for their utility signing spree, but the club has made it clear that all of those players have roles, and with continued development of some of the club’s other young talent, the Bulldogs must find a way into the top eight this year

That is especially true given that their most pressing need appears to be in the forwards – more on that later.
