This game has been celebrated as the official farewell for the Bulldogs' favourite son, Josh Reynolds.
In front of a packed Belmore Sports Ground crowd, the bloke affectionately known as 'Grub' ran out to a hug from his mum and deafening applause. Watch the video below.
Chatting with Brad Fittler for WWOS before the game, Grub revealed just how much this ground means to him.
"(Canterbury) has played a huge part in my life," Reynolds said.
"You don't want to think about it too much, because you've got a game to play.
"If I wasn't here, I'd probably be a totally different person...I can't thank them enough for everything they've given me."
Reynolds will go to the Tigers next season.
