Bulldogs vs Roosters – Round 11, 2017

Preview

These two sides come into this clash following contrasting games last week.

The Dogs were convincingly beaten by the Cowboys as the Roosters put the Eels to the sword early and never looked back.

The biggest issue all season long for the Bulldogs was in the halves and that remains true as they were completely outplayed by an undermanned Cowboys side last week. It won’t get any easier for them this week as they come up against one of the most in-form combinations in the league, in Mitchell Pearce and Luke Keary.

The pair has six tries and 20 try assists between them, as well as remaining one of the best defensive sides in the competition.

The Roosters have attacking weapons all over the park, with Latrell Mitchell making a successful return to the senior side.

Rightly so, the Roosters are comfortable favourites with the bookies as their hunt for the top spot on the ladder continues as the Origin period draws closer, as they are among a host of top teams looking to churn out victories before losing their star players.

A Des Hasler-coached side always bounces back in strong fashion after a poor performance, however, this one might be a little more than they can chew off.

Roosters by 8.
