Cantebury knock Manly out of NRL finals

A golden-point field goal from Trent Hodkinson has pushed Cantebury through to the NRL preliminary finals.

The nail-biting finish saw the Bulldogs claim the win 18 points to 17.

It means Cantebury could become the first side in almost two decades to win a grand final from outside the top four.


But the side may have to do it without influential back rower Josh Jackson, who is facing time on the sidelines after a tackle on Manly’s Josh Starling.

The Bulldogs will now face Penrith at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.
