Gus gobsmacked by Bulldogs' magical' play


//

It’s rare that Phil Gould is ever lost for words but Canterbury Bulldogs hooker Zac Woolford managed to do that after coming up with a brilliant play in the 2018 Intrust Super Premiership NSW Grand Final against the Newtown Jets.

Trailing 10-6 and 10 minutes into the second half of the match at Leichhardt Oval, Woolford slotted in to dummy-half on the back of a bullocking run and quick play the ball from backrower Rhyse Martin before digging deep into his bag of tricks.

The Bulldogs No.9 had massive numbers to his left but instead fired a bullet-like pass to his right to put an unmarked Josh Bergamin over in the corner to spark wild celebrations amongst the players and leave Gould searching for superlatives.

“That is magic, absolute magic,” Gus said.

“Joshua Bergamin was blowing up because he thought the ball should have come to him on a previous play and Woolford said, ‘Well if you want it young man, here it is’.”

Martin, who quickly established his reputation as a sharpshooter for the Bulldogs in the first grade team this season, made no mistake with the difficult chance from the sideline to put the Bulldogs up for the first time that afternoon 12-10.

“That is a brilliant kick, an absolute brilliant kick and it follows up a brilliant try,” Gus said.

“Great dummy-half play there to find his winger unmarked. The defence were caught napping there.

“And this goal from the sideline is magnificent. Absolutely magnificent. I can’t tell you how difficult that is for a right foot kicker with the breeze blowing into his face.”

The play would prove telling with the Bulldogs going on to win the match 18-12.
