Pritchard to Play 200th NRL Match Against Warriors

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs back rower Frank Pritchard will this weekend make his 200th NRL appearance when the Bulldogs take on the Warriors at Westpac Stadium, Wellington on Saturday night with kick-off at 7.30pm (NZ time).


Coach Des Hasler has made no changes to the side that took to the field for the 40-4 victory over the Tigers in round eight. Both Martin Taupau and Tim Browne have been named on a six-man interchange bench with two to be omitted prior to kick-off.


Prichard, 29, is proud of reaching the 200-game milestone.


Its a great achievement playing 200 games and whilst Im proud of reaching the milestone it wont mean anything if we dont come away with the win, Pritchard said.


It is always a physical match when we come up against the Warriors and Im sure there will be great atmosphere across in Wellington but well be looking to stick to the game plan and get the victory.
