Magic Round Team News: Bulldogs ready for Raiders

Head Coach Cameron Ciraldo has called on the same 17 for a Magic Round showdown against the Canberra Raiders at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.

Continuing on from a close match-up against the triple Premiers in Penrith, the Bulldogs will take plenty of heart into the fixture against the Raiders as they chase their fifth win for the season.

The Bulldogs are ready to cast aside a poor Magic Round record with the new-look Bulldogs vastly seen as 2024's biggest improvers. Having racked up victories over the Titans, Roosters, Knights and Tigers so far this season, they head into Friday's match in the 9th position and ready to take on the gritty Raiders outfit who sit just a mere few points ahead in 7th.

The Bulldogs will bring plenty of attacking power either side of the field this weekend, with Kiraz posting the Bulldogs' most run metres last week (236m) and amassing 3 line breaks. Opposing him on the left wing is Addo-Carr who brings a lethal pace with Bronson Xerri sat inside him. Addo-Carr has scored 20 tries in 20 games at Suncorp and will be looking to capitalise on any opportunities that come his way on Friday.
