Anthony Mundine Offers His Services To The Struggling Canterbury Bulldogs

Anthony Mundine has registered his interest in helping out the Canterbury Bulldogs following the departure of Trent Barrett.

Former rugby league player-turned-boxer Mundine has offered up his services, saying he'd be capable of stepping into a consultancy role to try and guide the struggling club out of its slump.

Shortly after the Doggies' demoralising defeat at the hands of the Knights during Magic Round, Barrett found himself heading for the exit door at Belmore.


A number of potential replacements have already been discussed with Shane Flanagan and Paul Green emerging as the bookies' favourites to take over.

In the meantime, Mundine reckons he could step into a consultancy role to lend Phil Gould a helping hand.

“I know the game, I’ve been playing since I was four," the ex-St George Dragons star told 7News.


“Obviously used to play State of Origin and whatnot, should have played for Australia but that’s another story.

“It’s mindset, that’s something I do bring.”

Speaking about Bulldogs general manager of football Gould, Mundine added: “I can get along with Gus, he’s all good.

“I gave him nightmares in the ‘90s but if he doesn’t hold that against me, it’s all good.


“Rub a bit of Mundine flavour into the Gould flavour and we’ve got a championship team.”

The Bulldogs are currently rock bottom of the NRL ladder with just two wins from their 10 games so far with a points difference of -125.

A win against Wests Tigers this weekend would not only see them above their rivals but could also see thew start of a transformation in the team's fortunes.
