Goulburn came out strong in the second half, with the three Cornish brothers linking up to get the ball to winger Patrick Cooke for his first try of the day.

The Bulldogs kept pushing the lead in the second half after Steven Cummins dove into the corner to score.
Yass finally broke the scoring streak with their first of the game, coming after Brendon Housden scored in the corner in front of the home crowd.
