Bulldogs: Canterbury-Bankstown will lose Raymond Faitala-Mariner and Corey Waddell to injury and suspension respectively. The loss will see the inclusion of fan favourite Jackson Topine and the NRL debut of Harrison Edwards. Declan Casey will make way for Jake Averillo at fullback, after the local junior was cleared of COVID-19.
Knights: Kalyn Ponga has been ruled out due to concussion, whilst Lachlan Fitzgibbon will miss the match with a shoulder injury. Tex Hoy and Brodie Jones have also been named to line-up for the Knights on Sunday.
Matt Burton v Anthony Milford: On the back of his debut Origin series, Burton has returned to the Bulldogs full of confidence and ready to chance his hand whenever the opportunity presents. From his towering bombs to his astute passing game and elusive running, the Dogs No.6 has all bases covered and his reputation grows with each passing week. In eight games for the Knights, Milford has produced nine forced dropouts and five try assists and his kicking game has come to the fore in recent weeks.
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs travel north to take on the Newcastle Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium this Sunday afternoon kicking off at 2:00PM AEST. Tickets available here.
