Three Things You Should Know
- The Roosters stamped their credentials as a genuine force in 2017 with a convincing 32-18 win over the Gold Coast Titans last week.
- The Bulldogs will be motivated to bounce back after a tough 12-6 loss against the Storm last week.
- Playing at home, the Roosters will be carrying plenty of confidence after their win but the Bulldogs forward pack will push them to their limit.
