The Bulldogs take on the Dragons this Sunday afternoon at ANZ Stadium in what will be the second day game in a row for the blue and whites.

After a final minute defeat at the hands of the Rabbitohs last week, the men from Belmore are keen to make amends and get back in the winners’ circle. Add to the equation that five regular first graders are out due to suspension or injury, the task may seem, on paper, to be that little more difficult.

“Last week is behind us,” Mbye said. “There were obviously a few dramas at the end there but the powers that be here at the club have sorted that out.

“We’re down a few troops for different reasons but the guys coming in are no slouches, they’ve all played a lot of first grade and know exactly what is expected of them.
