Key Battle Round Three
Brett Morris has been named by Dean Pay on the right wing for Friday’s clash against the Penrith Panthers. B Moz started off the year well after scoring his first try against the Storm in Round One Perth. He has made a total 150 metres running in the past two games.
Brett will also be looking to have an impact on the right edge alongside his brother, Josh, who is playing his 200th NRL match for the Bulldogs.
Morris fronted the media early on Monday and said defence is something the squad has been working on.
“We haven’t played a good 80 minutes yet. For the players it’s something we need to address, work on and really improve over the next couple of weeks. Defence is more of an attitude thing, I think the biggest thing for us is we need to go in there with the attitude to stop the tries.
We need to work hard on the training paddock and hopefully things will turn around for us.”
Josh Mansour has returned to the Penrith Panthers squad this season following a disrupted year after suffering an ACL injury.
He has played for the past two games for Penrith and has a 94.4% tackle efficiency and averages 165 metres per game.
Mansour will be looking to assist the Panthers to their third consecutive victory of the season and is part of a dangerous backline that will seek to test the new Bulldogs halves.
He will be looking to impress all-comers this year as he is off contract at the end of the season.
Be there for our first Sydney home game against the Penrith Panthers on Friday March 23, 6pm at ANZ Stadium.
