Winger Brett Morris spoke with the media ahead of tonight's clash with the Roosters about the importance on improving from last weekend's defeat to the Storm.

The Bulldogs struggled to capitalise with the ball in their season opener and winger Brett Morris understands the Bulldogs have room for improvement before their next clash against the Sydney Roosters on Thursday night.

“In the second half we had a fair bit of ball and we missed a few opportunities where we probably could’ve scored points and ultimately that’s what cost us the game in the end," said Morris.

“There was a fair bit of rain, the ball was pretty greasy but obviously on those dry days you’d like to see a lot more ball movement and we certainly have some good strike power out wide.”

Despite the loss, Morris spoke highly of teammate and debutant Brenko Lee after he made a significant contribution in the centres, including a line break and the only try assist of the game for the side.

“I thought Brenko Lee in his first game on the weekend was, I thought was outstanding and he’s a quality player and he’s one of those guys you know that demands the ball and we need to get it to him.”

The Bulldogs will head to Allianz Stadium tonight looking to shut down the Roosters halves combination of Luke Keary and Mitchell Pearce after playing a significant role in their side's victory over the Gold Coast Titans in Round One.

“I think they gel together really well and they'll be looking to back that up again this weekend. So for us they’re two danger men that we have to keep our eye on,” said Morris.
