Front-rower Tim Browne has spoken with the media ahead of the Bulldogs final home and away game of the regular season.
The Bulldogs could finish as high as fourth if they win in round 26 and both the Storm and Sharks lose.
If this is the case then the Bulldogs will be given a second chance and play an away final in week one against the Roosters or Broncos, but to put it frankly – this is out of the control of the Bulldogs.
“All the boys in the camp haven’t spoken about fourth or fifth,” said Browne.
“We need to worry about ourselves and the game we have this week against the Warriors, because we all know what type of side they are.
“We’ve got to be ready to turn up on Sunday.”
The Bulldogs are playing with confidence and have won their last four games.
It’s a different scenario to last year when they only won two of their final eight games to limp into the finals and what Browne puts it down to, is confidence.
“It’s good to get a winning streak anywhere in the season, particularly at this time of the year.
“Leading in to the finals I would like to think that’s a real confidence boost. We have been playing some good footy, we’ve won some tight matches and although we haven’t played to our full potential, the confidence growing within the group has got to be a good thing.”
The club will be saying farewell to three fan favourites at the end of the season in Trent Hodkinson, Frank Pritchard and Corey Thompson, with members and fans encouraged to come along and celebrate their time at the club.
