Bulldogs and Knights to face off for beyondblue Cup

The incidence of depression in Australia will once again take the spotlight on Sunday when the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Newcastle Knights line up for the third instalment of the beyondblue Cup at ANZ Stadium.

The beyondblue Cup was struck in late 2009 to raise awareness of depression, anxiety and related disorders, and to reduce the associated stigma. beyondblue's aim is to encourage people to learn more about the signs and symptoms of these mental health conditions and to seek help if they're worried about themselves, or someone else.

The Cup is an important event in the Bulldogs in the Community Programme's yearly calendar, with beyondblue one of the Club's six core charity partners.

The Bulldogs currently hold the Cup thanks to a Ben Barba inspired 32-22 victory in round 25 last season, while the overall tally stands at one apiece with the Knights the first to lift the trophy back in early 2010.
