Team Update: Round 3 v Warriors
Des Hasler has named his 19-man squad for tomorrow night's clash with the Warriors at Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin.
The Bulldogs named 21 players on Tuesday under the new NRL rules, with 17 named plus four extra reserves.
Matt Frawley and Craig Garvey drop out of the 21-man squad that was named on Tuesday, with Francis Tualau and Reimis Smith still in line to take to the field on Thursday night.
Meanwhile, the Warriors have trimmed their squad to 19 players with Roger Tuivasa-Sheck ruled out due to injury and the other player omitted from the initial 21-man squad will be halfback Mason Lino.
Tuimoala Lolohea, who was originally named on an extended bench on Tuesday, will now replace Tuivasa-Sheck at fullback.
The Bulldogs arrived in Dunedin on Wednesday afternoon ahead of their Round Three clash with the New Zealand Warriors.
The team was greeted at the airport with a traditional Dunedin welcome and told how much the local rugby league community was looking forward to supporting them on Friday night.
