The Canterbury Bankstown club had a previous nickname prior to being called the Bulldogs. What was it? (Easy)

Less well known is that Western Suburbs also had a previous nickname to that of the Magpies. What was it? (Harder)

canteen,it wasnt an official moniker but you would be surprised to know that wests had a period of big spending in the mid 1900s which did earn them the title of "millionaires".players like kel oshea and arthur summons were bought in a spending spree to add to blokes like kieth holman.

Manly were called the new Wests in the 60s and 70s. Irony is that Roy Masters used the Fibro/Silvertail thing as a great motivator for the Magpies in those great wars in the 70s and early eighties.

Now it is only the Rorters who are the millionaires!
