Round 3 Team News: Bulldogs to tackle Titans

The Bulldogs have promoted Liam Knight to the starting side in the only change for Saturday afternoon's Round 3 clash with the Titans at Belmore Sports Ground.

Knight opened his 2024 season in the KOE NSW Cup and has managed 288 running metres and 73 tackles across the first two rounds. His elevation for this week's clash comes as the side prepares to tackle the Titans for their first home match of the season at Belmore Sports Ground.

Connor Tracey holds down his starting position on the left wing while Bronson Xerri continues to wait patiently for his opportunity at 18th man.

Poasa Faa'mausili (head knock) and Josh Addo-Carr (shoulder) remain unavailable for this weekend's clash while Toby Sexton, Jake Turpin, Kitione Kautoga and Chris Patolo round out the reserves.

Recently renewed lock Max King will line up for his 100th NRL match this weekend. A consistent pick for Ciraldo's starting side, King's on-field numbers have proved he is just as consistent and valuable on and off the paddock with his leadership commended over the pre-season.

The Bulldogs will face the Titans at 3:00pm on Saturday, March 23 for the NRL's Multicultural Round.

As in previous years, the Bulldogs will host a cultural extravaganza with a series of performances, activities and food stalls from across the globe set to accompany the intense afternoon of rugby league.

Members and fans are encouraged to get in early to secure tickets. Gates will open at 12:30pm with NSW Cup to kick-off at 12:40pm, followed by the NRL match.
