NRL Bulldogs appeal for more info

The Bulldogs have appealed for more information to help identify the person responsible for letting off an explosive device at Telstra Stadium on Friday night.

Officials from the NRL, the stadium and the Bulldogs held a two hour meeting with police on Monday to try and shed more light on the culprit or culprits who set off a loud firework in the match against Brisbane.

Bulldogs chief executive Malcolm Noad hinted that security officers would be redeployed to potential trouble spots for the club's next home match, against Newcastle on August 6.

"We have sniffer dogs out there already and bag searches," Noad said in defence of the Olympic stadium's security measures.

"It's premature to discuss what we're looking at but we'll certainly be discussing before the next home game what we might be able to do.

"It might be redeploying existing security, putting more security in specific areas."

The Bulldogs handed information over to police from their fans on Monday but it's likely further evidence will be needed before any arrests can be made.

"Anyone out there who thinks they may have any information, we'd appeal for them to come forward to either the Bulldogs or the police," Noad pleaded.

"I don't think the job's done necessarily."

NRL operations manager Graham Annesley said the league had not even discussed at Monday's meeting the possibility of punishing the Bulldogs for the irresponsible actions of their fans.
