Lichaa Ready for Battle with Luke

Michael Lichaa will this week go head to head with the hooker he thinks is the best in the game, Issac Luke.

The Bulldogs will this week go head to head with the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium and one of the clashes many will be eager to watch is the clash of the number nines.

While the Bulldogs Lichaa is only a rookie, the Rabbitohs number nine Issac Luke is quickly establishing himself as the best running dummy half in the game and possibly the best.

"They have got the best hooker in the game in Issac Luke...so we will have to be on our game."

"He doesn't play Origin so he may not get as many wraps as the other boys, but I don't think anyone comes close to him...his running game is pretty good," said Lichaa.

This week will be Lichaa's fifth game in his new colours and he believes he is improving each week.

"It's definitely getting easier each week playing longer minutes...last weekend I definitely felt a lot better out there," said Lichaa.
