Bulldogs register third straight victory

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have made it three wins in a row following a 30-16 victory over the New Zealand Warriors at Belmore Sports Ground.

The Bulldogs made three changes to their side and after a dominant first half that had the home side leading 16-6 at the break, the Dogs were able to score a further three tries in the second half to register a 14-point win.

Bulldogs back-rower Jackson Topine opened the scoring in the 8th minute, before two tries in 15 minutes from prop forward Devontai Seumanutafa and winger Frank Kuresa, along with two conversions from half Jake Averillo gave the Dogs a 16-nil lead.

The Warriors grabbed a try three minutes from the break to close Canterbury’s lead to ten.

Brody Tamarua crossed just after half-time to have the visitors trail the Bulldogs by four, but three tries in 14 minutes from the Dogs through Matt Doorey, Isaiah Tass and Tyrone Harding gave the home side a commanding 30-12 lead with ten minutes left on the clock.

The visitors scored a late try and the Bulldogs held on to claim another two points.

The win over the Warriors follows the previous two victories against the Dragons and Roosters and now has the Bulldogs sitting in seventh position with a clash against the ladder leading Cronulla Sharks next weekend.
