The Key Numbers from Roosters Clash

The Bulldogs have celebrated Sam Perrett's 250th game in the NRL with a 24-20 win over his former club the Roosters at Allianz Stadium on Thursday night.

It wasn't as clinical as their dismantling of the Brisbane Broncos last weekend, but the Bulldogs did enough to register their third win in a row to move into the top four for the first time since the opening fortnight of the season.
