  • Canterbury Bulldogs produced a superb performance on the road as they stunned Melbourne Storm last week as they put their underwhelming effort against Manly Sea Eagles in round 1 well and truly behind them.
  • The Dogs were impressive on both sides of the ball but looked much better in attack in round 2 and it is no surprise to see head coach Cameron Ciraldo stick with the same side this week.

Starting 13: Perham, Kiraz, Averillo, Alamoti, Addo-Carr, Burton, Flanagan, King, Mahoney, Sutton, Kikau, Preston, Faitala-Mariner – Interchanges: Okunbor, Waddell, Pele, Brown – Reserves: Burns, Oloapu, Reynolds, Topine, Tanner

  • Wests Tigers produced another toothless attacking performance as they failed to get the better of 12-man Newcastle Knights in what was a bitterly disappointing result.,
  • The Tigers will be desperate to get off the mark for the campaign but have been forced into some changes this week with Isaiah Papali’i and Daine Laurie are among those ruled out but John Bateman could debut after he was named in the list of reserves.

Starting 13: Staines, Nofoaluma, Naden, Talau, To’a, Doueihi, Brooks, Utoikamanu, Koroisau, Klemmer, Kepaoa, Blore, Pole – Interchanges: Wakeham, Twal, Ofahengaue, Tumeth – Reserves: Matamua, Seyfarth. Bateman, Ngatikaura, Bula

Canterbury Bulldogs produced a lacklustre performance in round 1 but were hugely improved as they ran out victors against Melbourne Storm in what was a superb display last week. The Bulldogs clicked into gear excellently and will hope to kick-on as they take on a winless Wests Tigers. The visitors were very poor once again as they failed to take advantage of plenty of issues suffered by Newcastle Knights and with some injuries to contend with this week, another defeat is on the cards here with the Dogs able to cover the -7.5 handicap.
