Not only did the Western Bulldogs break their 62-year premiership drought, they did it their way, too.Jubilant president Peter Gordon made the important distinction after his club capped a stunning finals campaign with a hard-fought 22-point grand final win on Saturday over Sydney.The Bulldogs barnstorming run through September was as unlikely as it was breathtaking, Luke Beveridges side overcoming the odds to beat West Coast, Hawthorn then Greater Western Sydney.Their youthful, unabashed joy as they cleared each seemingly insurmountable finals hurdle was a breath of fresh air.There are a few experts around who say that you need to keep a lid on it and do all of these things in a particular way, like they do, but were not them - were us, Gordon said.Were the first team to have come from seventh to the grand final and to win it.The way that we respond to things and the way that we deal with things - thats something that belongs to us because we are the Western Bulldogs Football Club.We rejoice in those victories and it doesnt mean that the next day we dont knuckle down.Few are more qualified than Gordon to speak of the significance of his clubs first premiership since 1954 - just the second in their history.The financially stricken Dogs were days away from extinction when he first took over as president in 1989 and had several close calls in the years since.To me and to the hundreds of thousands of the Bulldogs faithful, who have stuck with us through years and years, this is a dream come true, he said.This is one of those big days in life, one of those days that most of us will never forget. It will be one of the happiest days of our lives for all Bulldogs fans.What does it feel like? It feels bloody fantastic!Gordon believes Saturdays stunning grand-final win would not have happened if not for the inspirational pairing of coach Luke Beveridge and captain Bob Murphy.The combination of these two guys is greater than the sum of the parts, he said.Whilst we rejoice in our players (deeds) ... I express on behalf of my football club my deep love and gratitude to Luke Beveridge and to Rob Murphy. Josh Anderson Jersey

. -- Charlie Graham stopped 67 shots as the Belleville Bulls edged the visiting Guelph Storm 6-5 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. Dan Biggar believes that public criticism is part and parcel of the game as Wales look to bounce back from their Wallabies walloping when they tackle Argentina on Saturday.But the Wales fly-half has also cited a famous number 10 from another sport - England football captain Wayne Rooney - as an example of when he feels things can go too far.Rooney has unusually been a substitute for Manchester United several times this season and was also on the bench for England in their World Cup qualifier against Slovenia - a combination of events which sparked sometimes fierce critical comment about him.Biggar and company also faced headlines of the wrong type this week following a 32-8 defeat against Australia that was Wales heaviest home defeat for 10 years.I am not on social media, but of course you pick up little things and what people say in articles and that, but for me, its just part and parcel of the game, said Biggar, who wins his 50th cap this weekend.The way I look at it, Im in a great position.Imagine being someone like Wayne Rooney over the last three months and the press, their disgusting treatment of one of Englands better players. If I think Im having a tough time, just look at him.Living and playing in Wales can be very much a goldfish bowl. Sometimes, it can be nice to be outside of that and get on with your day-to-day life.But I dont take any notice of the criticism and, ultimately, everyone wants Wales to do well and get better.If everyone had gone out there and not tried (last Saturday) and rolled over, been lax and not hurt by it, fair enough, but it is not as if we werent trying.Its always easier to slow the tape down and criticise after the event.We were hugely disappointed, weve spoken very honestlly about it, but now its about focusing on Argentina, putting a better performance in, enjoying ourselves a bit more and taking a little bit of pressure off ourselves.ddddddddddddWhat Ive learnt over the years is that you cannot change peoples opinions.I watched a little bit of the football last Sunday, went out for food with my wife and did normal things. Was it going to change the result if we stayed in hiding for two days? Is it going to change what people say?Its not going to change a thing. You have just got to be mature about it. A couple of years ago, I would have probably stayed in the house and drawn the curtains.Biggar will be key to Wales hopes of posting a first Test match win since March, aiming to pull the tactical strings for a much-changed team that sees no Jamie Roberts, but Roberts fellow British and Irish Lions Test players Sam Warburton and Alun Wyn Jones both returning.Recent history in the fixture favours Wales, having beaten Argentina in four of the countries last five meetings, but Biggar knows a powerful Pumas challenge awaits.Argentina have got a Super Rugby franchise now, they were semi-finalists and finished fourth at the World Cup last year and they have got some world-class players, he added.We will have to put in a very good performance - certainly better than last week - to pick up a result.The way they play the game, there is going to be plenty of off-loads, and I wouldnt have thought there would be too much kicking from them. I am sure it will be an entertaining game and a real challenge for us - we are being prepared for a full-blooded Test match.
