Team Announcement: Finals Week 1
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Coach Des Hasler has today named his side to take on the Melbourne Storm this Sunday, 14 September at AAMI Park in Melbourne.
The match will kick-off at 4.10pm with the side facing elimination if they are unable to defeat the Storm.
Co-Captain Frank Pritchard made a successful return from injury last weekend and will again start the match from the interchange bench whilst Hasler also welcomes back Dale Finucane who returns after serving a one-match suspension. The 23-year-old will also start on the interchange bench with Pat O’Hanlon keeping his spot on an extended seven-man bench (three will be omitted on match day).
Co-Captain Michael Ennis is aware of the challenge ahead.
“It’s going to be a really good challenge, Ennis said. “Those games where we’ve been able to get into the grind are the ones where we have performed well so hopefully that is what we can get into on Sunday.
“Last week wasn’t ideal but we need to knuckle down this week and prepare as best as we can.”
