Wodonga will host one of the bigger premiership reunions on Saturday.

The Bulldogs will celebrate seven flags, over a 50-year period.

It starts with the 1957 reserves, followed by the ‘67 seniors, ‘77 thirds, all three grades from ‘87 and the 2007 thirds.

It’s been dubbed the 7’s Reunion.

“Basically we have people coming from nearly every State in Australia, we have some from Western Australia, Tasmania, Queensland,” coordinator and Bulldogs’ Hall of Famer Brett Allen said.

Allen was a central figure in the ‘87 senior flag.

The club will host a luncheon for approximately 80 people prior to the home clash against Corowa-Rutherglen, with around double that figure set to attend the function that night.

Wodonga sits two wins behind the three teams on 40 points with only three rounds left, but it does have an easier draw against two of the bottom outfits in the next two weeks.
