Canterbury coach Des Hasler

Bulldogs are 100 per cent behind Hasler – Graham

Hasler looked set to lose his job almost a fortnight ago amid unrest from some sections of the Bulldogs board, namely club legend Steve Mortimer.

Instead, the two-time NRL premiership-winning coach survived - for at least another season - with Mortimer delivering on his promise to resign should former Manly Sea Eagles boss Hasler be retained.

The situation has threatened to unravel the Bulldogs, but Graham says his team-mates are ready to fight for Hasler in 2017.
