After lifting themselves off the bottom of the NSW Cup ladder in the middle of the season, the North Sydney Bears bowed out of the competition's Finals Series, going down to the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs by 22-4 at Belmore Oval over the weekend.
The four tries to one effort saw Rabbitohs squad member, John Olive, pick up the only four points for the North Sydney side – Olive racing in for the last points of the game with 26 minutes remaining.
Norths finished the NSW Cup season in eighth position on 26 competition points – a dramatic turn-around from earlier in the season after languishing at the bottom of the table.
Bulldogs 22 (Jaline Graham 2, Pat O’Hanlon, Jarrod McInally, tries; Levi Dodd 3 goals)
Bears 4 (John Olive, try)
