Round 22 NSW Cup Preview
The Bulldogs NSW Cup side will head to Morry Breen Oval on Sunday to tackle the Wyong Roos.
Wyong Roos Vs Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs
Morry Breen Oval, Sunday, August 10
Referee: Chris Treneman
Broadcast: NSWRL Match Centre coverage available via NSWRL.com.au
Summary: A win against Wenty last weekend has seen the Roos keep their slim finals chances alive for at least one more week. With the Knights and Sharks meeting each other this Saturday, a win here for Wyong should see them just two points behind the eighth placed side at rounds end. The biggest issue for the Roos is their poor for and against. As a result, they must win all four of their remaining games, and with their last three away from home against top eight opponents, they will be up against it. The Bulldogs registered their sixth win of the season last week against the Bears and will head into this clash believing that they can extend that tally to seven. Jaline Graham bagged a hat trick against the Bears and will need to be watched closely by the Roos defence. Zane Tetevano claimed man of the match honours for Wyong last weekend and continues to play well in the green and gold. Despite his issues at the Knights, a strong finish to the season is likely to see him targeted by a number of NRL clubs for 2015.
Under-Dogs: Often in sport there are rivalries, and some of those rivalries are formed off the back of one side having a dominant record over another. Now while we may not yet be at that point just yet, with three wins to their name from three matches played against the Bulldogs, Wyong are quickly becoming the Bulldogs bogey side.
