The Milton-Ulladulla Bulldogs are an Australian rugby league football team based in Ulladulla, a coastal town of the South Coast region. The club is a part of Country Rugby League and have competed in the South Coast first grade competition since the 1930s.

History[edit]

The Bulldogs originally competed in the Group 16 Rugby League competition before making the switch to the South Coast during the 1930s. Their success was far from instantaneous. It took the club until 1987 to win their inaugural first grade premiership after five decades competing in the league. They have enjoyed relatively good success, however, in recent times. The Bulldogs made the final in 2002 before going down to Batemans Bay at the Tigers home ground, Mackay Park. In 2004, the Dogs did the double winning the minor premiership and taking out the title with a classy 50-12 performance over fifth-place playoff winning side, Berry Magpies, at Berry Showground.[1] The Bulldogs made it back-to-back titles in 2005, with another good performance in the final, defeating minor premiers Albion Park-Oak Flats Eagles at Centenary Park, Albion Park, 34-22.[2] In 2008, the Bulldogs took home the title again, this time win a home victory over minor premiers Shellharbour 36-24.[3]
