The Bulldogs now sit equal with last-placed Parramatta on wins but only ahead of the Eels due to bye points, following their sixth loss in seven matches to Graham's St George Illawarra side on Monday.

Players have also had to deal with salary cap issues, which forced Graham out last year and now threaten to do the same to Moses Mbye and Aaron Woods among others.

Graham remains close to the group and even caught up with some players in the weeks leading into Monday's clash.

  Wade Graham intrigued by Aaron Woods rumours as Sydney Roosters make late play This time last week it was a matter of when, not if, Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs prop Aaron Woods would join the Cronulla Sharks. Woods had confided in close friends that The Shire club was his preferred destination should the Bulldogs decide to offload him just six months into his four-year deal.Sharks coach Shane Flanagan then entered the fray with a bold public declaration of his interest in signing the 28-year-old by the June 30 deadline.

Hi - I'm Graham . I'm a friendly guy with an interest in guys, their feet, socks, and trainers and sharing this with you. 👍 Graham Thanks for being you and doing something that we which we could all do and Thank you for showing us all these wonderful male feet.

And while loath to weigh into the cap issues, he offered support to his former clubmates given they've dropped to a 3-11 record for just the second time since 1964.

"Absolutely (we're still close). A lot of them were my teammates for six years. You don't turn it off because you leave," Graham said.

"You've got to give credit to people at Canterbury at the moment because every game they've come out to play and they've been in the battle and the game.

Graham feels for ex - teammates at Bulldogs . James Graham has thrown his support behind his embattled former Canterbury teammates as their horror season enters a race to avoid the wooden spoon.

"They've beaten Penrith and were close to beating Penrith again. They went close to beating us. Those two sides are at the front of the league.

"But with how close this sporting competition is, people forget that and don't want to talk about that.

"They want to talk about other stuff and look for reasons and excuses, whatever it may be. They don't want to say it's a tough sport to play."

The Bulldogs' six recent losses have all come by eight points or less, and they still maintain the second best defensive record of any team outside of the top eight.

However their hopes of making the top eight are all but over, meaning they're set to sit out consecutive finals series for just the second time since 1989 and 1990.

"It's like a broken record. We'll sit here every week and say the effort is great and it is," Mbye said this week.

"You can't doubt our effort. It is really good and we are ripping in for each other and working hard. We are not letting teams get away with many games.

"But the competition is so close these days."

Mbye prefers to see out year at Dogs .
Linked to a mid-season Wests Tigers switch, Moses Mbye says he is wary of burning bridges and prefers to see out the 2018 NRL campaign with Canterbury. Asked about a mid-season switch, Mbye told Fox Sports' Queenslanders Only: "It's the NRL, anything can happen but I am at the Dogs this week."I am looking forward to finishing the year with the boys."I think it is important how you leave a club as well."I want to go out without burning any bridges or upsetting anyone. I think the boys deserve that.
