Round 16 late mail: Kikau and Hutchison in; Turpin to start

Head Coach Cameron Ciraldo has finalised his squad to face the Roosters at Industree Stadium this evening.

Bulldogs enforcer Viliame Kikau adds a big boost for this evening's side as they chase down their fourth straight win.

Kikau slots in to start in the second row after being cleared from a finger injury during yesterday's Captain's Run. Josh Curran, now cleared to return from HIA protocols, moves to the interchange bench alongside Bailey Hayward.

Drew Hutchison comes in at centre to replace Bronson Xerri, who has been ruled out with a hamstring niggle.

Jeral Skelton makes his first NRL appearance of 2024, starting on the wing while Jake Turpin moves to the starting lineup at lock. Eli Clark comes in at 18th man.

The Bulldogs will face the Roosters for the second time of the 2024 season and it is set to be a competitive battle tonight as the Blue and White look to further cement themselves in the top eight.

With Stephen Crichton out with Origin duties, Reed Mahoney will lead the side out.
