The Bulldogs 2016 NYC side started their season in style with a convincing win over the Manly Sea Eagles while their round 2 opponents went down to the Raiders in round 1.
The Bulldogs started the new season with a 40-12 win over the Manly Sea Eagles. The Bulldogs were led around the park by the halves pairing of Jade Anderson and Zac Greene, while winger Reimis Smith continued his impressive try-scoring form from last season with a try in each half.
Their opponents this week, the Penrith Panthers went down to the Canberra Raiders after a last minute try to Canberra halfback Lachlan Croker sealed a 36-34 win over the defending premiers. The lead change several times, before Croker took advantage of a break from dummy-half Zac Woolford to score the winner on the stroke of fulltime.
The Bulldogs NYC side will head to Pepper Stadium on Thursday night with plenty of confidence and with the home side missing a couple of stars, the visitors will be looking to make it two from two to begin the season.
