RD4 NYC Preview
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs NYC side takes on the Melbourne Storm this Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking for their second win of the season.
The Bulldogs hammered 2013 Holden Cup winners Penrith 34-14 over the weekend, leaving the Panthers with no wins from their first three games.
In a game that saw 50 points scored, the first quarter of the match was scoreless. The Dogs were really controlling the match, Robbie Kamoto combined well with the dangerous second rower Shaun Lane to really test the Penrith defence.
The scores were locked at 14-14 at half time, winger Aaron Pene adding two more tries in the second half to bring up his hat trick in the 77th minute. Brilliant kicker Brendan Cox kicked 5 from 6 conversion attempts.
Melbourne was on the wrong end of a half-century flogging, going down 50-0 against Newcastle last Monday at AAMI Park. In Round 1 they were unlucky not to beat Manly at Brookvale Oval, going down 34-20 before giving Penrith a 42-24 beating in Round 2.
The last time these two sides met was in Round 18 last year, the Bulldogs were winners that day, 26-22..
