Canterbury Bulldogs pulled off an upset win last week and now try to topple minor premiers Penrith Panthers at ANZ Stadium on Saturday. The Panthers are seeking a 15th straight win in their final game of the regular season, while the Bulldogs are guaranteed to finish in 15th place on the ladder.

Canterbury Bulldogs shocked the finals-bound South Sydney Rabbitohs last weekend with a 26-16 upset win to end a seven-game losing streak.

It was just the Bulldogs' third victory of the season, but ensured they will avoid the wooden spoon and finish in 15th. That is unless they go down by a 177-point margin against the Panthers.
