Reynolds goal gives Bulldogs win over Roosters

6:05 am on 5 April 2014

The Canterbury Bulldogs kicked a late field goal to edge the Sydney Roosters 9-8 in their National Rugby League game in Sydney on Friday night.

Josh Reynolds calmly slotted the match-winner from 20 metres out in the 70th minute at Allianz Stadium, a set after the Roosters had first turned down a penalty shot at goal and then halfback Mitchell Pearce missed a relatively easy field-goal attempt.

Reynolds' successful kick was the only point in a tough, absorbing second half in soggy conditions after the two sides were locked at 8-8 at half-time.
