Hasler Confirms Origin Replacements
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Coach Des Hasler has today named Tim Browne and Raymond Faitala-Mariner as the men to step into the starting side, replacing NSW Origin representatives David Klemmer and Josh Jackson, for the match on Sunday against the Canberra Raiders at GIO Stadium.
Browne will start the match at lock in the place of Klemmer whilst Faitala-Mariner has been named in the run on side for the first time, and will start in the back row in the place of Jackson.
With those two men chosen to start the match, Adam Elliott and Danny Fualalo come into the side on the interchange bench.
Hooker Michael Lichaa is looking forward to the challenge this weekend in the nation’s capital.
“They got the better of us up here earlier in the season so we’ll be looking to return serve on Sunday,” Lichaa said. “We’ve won our last two and it’d be great to get a third win on the trot for the first time this year.”
