The Key Numbers from Warriors Clash

The key team stats and individual stats from the round 7 clash with the Warriors in Wellington.

In many areas of the game the Bulldogs performed well enough to win – completing at 85 per cent and enjoying an even share of possession – but in the end made crucial defensive errors which saw them fall short.

After heading into Round 6 inside the top eight, and off the back of a gritty victory away to Melbourne, the trip to Wellington was a great chance to build some momentum in 2016.
