Canterbury- Bankstown Bulldogs Jersey Flegg coach Brad Henderson has confirmed his squad to take on the Parramatta Eels this Saturday at Panthers Stadium in the elimination final.
Henderson has made a host of changes for the opening weekend of the finals series, including Dalton Smith returning to the team in the second row and Alex Seve returns to five-eighth to partner Brandon Wakeham in the halves.
The Bulldogs come into the fixture following a 30-18 victory over the Eels last weekend at Ringrose Park in the only meeting between the two sides in 2018.
The winner will advance to week two, while the season will be over for the defeated side.
