2021 Premier Rugby Season Review: Wests

Wests played their way into the Premier Rugby finals for the first time since 2017 but their season didn’t quite have the fairytale ending Bulldogs fans were hoping for.

After producing their best performance of the season to lead Jeeps 39-34 past the 80th minute, the Bulldogs season was ended cruelly, following an 82nd minute GPS try and a sideline conversion from Jason Hofmeyr.

Overview with Carl Marshall:

“I’ve probably only just gotten over the semi final loss, it took me two or three weeks. Every time I feel over it, someone asks me about it again though,” Marshall laughed.

“It was a pretty heartbreaking loss. We played some really good footy and then just struggled with a few things in those final few minutes. We didn’t control some of those key moments towards the end. If we had of controlled one of those five or six key moments, we probably would have won.
