Round 5 – Match 5 Preview: Canterbury Bulldogs v New Zealand Warriors

After their brilliant Round 3 comeback, the Bulldogs suffered their third defeat of the season last week when they went down 16 – 38 to the Rabbitohs.

New Zealand too had a loss in Round 4 when they were beaten by Manly in Auckland last week.

The Bulldogs have the home ground advantage this week and with the Warriors unable to win at home last week, playing away will prove even more of a struggle.

New Zealand have won away this year though, so they shouldn’t be forgotten just yet.

The Doggies faced some tough competition from the Bunnies last week and it is unlikely they will feel as much pressure from New Zealand this round, which is why they have been installed as the $1.38 favourites.

If Canterbury learnt their lesson last week and are a bit more creative with their plays this week they should come away with the win.
