That's full time here. A very good game that swung back and forth. The Warriors looked perhaps more controlled and calm than in previous weeks, but credit to the Bulldogs for hanging in there and doing enough to get home. Thanks for joining us for this one and check back soon for the match report.

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 21-20

A bullocking run from Hurrell is cut short as he flings it in-field but the Dogs regather the pill. Game over.

SUCCESSFUL FIELD GOAL CANTERBURY-BANKSTOWN BULLDOGS
Field goal attempt by Trent Hodkinson successful.

Hodkinson makes no mistake with a well-struck field goal. Two minutes left now and that might do it.

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 21-20

The field goal attempt from Leuluai goes wide. The Bulldogs pressure was good and Leuluai should have left it considering it was only the third tackle.

Penalty for the Bulldogs and they will take the two here to tie it up. Original call was knock-on and a possible milk from Reynolds suggests that call may have been right.

The Warriors in a nice attacking position but the youngster Havili can't handle in the tackle.

TRY CANTERBURY-BANKSTOWN BULLDOGS
Scored by Timoteo Lafai. Kick to come.

Attack for the Warriors turns into a try at the other end. A loose Warriors pass spilled out the back, and Hodkinson pounced and ran 70 metres. He was pulled down but on the next tackle the Dogs spread it to the other side ending with Lafai crossing on the right hand side.

New Zealand Warriors 20-16

64

Penalty for the Warriors and it's been all them for the last 10 or so minutes.

Johnson has controlled things pretty well today but he makes a meal of the grubber here and the Bulldogs survive.

New Zealand Warriors 20-12

An ill-advised grubber from Leuluai on just the second tackle sees the Bulldogs survive and work it out from their own end.

Scored by Simon Mannering. Kick to come.

And I'm wrong again. There's millimetres in it, but there's enough to suggest Mannering got to the Johnson grubber in time, particularly combined with the original call of try.

New Zealand Warriors 18-12

Video referee for a possible Warriors try. Cummins says try, again I thought Mannering didn't get there in time......

New Zealand Warriors 14-12

This time Manu holds onto the lofted kick from Reynolds and it's a 20m restart.

New Zealand Warriors 14-12

A Warriors bomb goes back to Manu but he's trapped and it's a handover. The teams just trading completed sets here, but now the Bulldogs receive a penalty.

Manu Vatuvei makes an unforced error.

It's the Manu of old as he spills a bomb with not a Bulldog in sight. Bulldogs scrumfeed in an attacking position.

Shaun Johnson is unable to convert from about 10m in from the right touchline.

Scored by Konrad Hurrell. Kick to come.

A couple of slices of luck for the Warriors. First the strip call, now Leuluai puts up the bomb on the fifth. Johnson elevated and got a hand to it, and the ricochet flew into the hands of Hurrell. He barges over from close range and it's another kiss for Mrs Hurrell.

UNFORCED ERROR CANTERBURY-BANKSTOWN BULLDOGS
Tim Browne makes an unforced error.

The Warriors will get the first attacking chance this half as Browne spills it. Replays show it was a clear strip however. Ennis, Reynolds and Tomkins exchange some words at the scrum.

New Zealand Warriors 10-6

Second half underway here as the Bulldogs will get first use of the footy.

New Zealand Warriors 10-6

And that will be halftime. The Warriors starting strongly and looked disciplined and determined, but started to lose their way a bit as half time approached. The Bulldogs started to find their attacking mojo as the first half wore on and as a result this game is nicely balanced heading into the second half.

Tim Browne loses the ball running onto a flat ball just a few metres out from the tryline. Warriors should hold on until halftime now.

The Bulldogs force a repeat set but the Warriors holding out for halftime. Dogs perhaps went a bit too side-to-side there,

Lillyman loses it in the play-the-ball and the Warriors look to be falling asleep.

Scored by Sam Perrett. Kick to come.

The Bulldogs make the Warriors pay for that error. A deep backline movement sees Sam Perrett take advantage of the overlap. The Warriors line speed was non-existent on their own line there.

Scored by Manu Vatuvei. Kick to come.

One look is enough for the video referees. No knock-on and the Warriors are in for their second. The offload from Matulino did it again although this one ended up going to ground. Josh Reynolds had an airwing at it and Vatuvei picked it up and strolled over.

New Zealand Warriors 10-0

Going upstairs for a possible try to Vatuvei. Ben Cummins says try....I thought Nielsen may have lost it in the lead-up....

New Zealand Warriors 6-0

Warriors penalty on the fifth tackle after Johnson made a break down the middle and was then held down too long.

Josh Reynolds grubbers through the line and a flying Corey Thompson gets a hand to it but the balls rolls dead in-goal. Warriors 20m restart and Tomkins can breath easy for now.

New Zealand Warriors 6-0

22

A brain explosion from Sam Tomkins. The grubber from Hodkinson was non-threateningly rolling out until for some inexplicable reason he decides to play at it at the last minute and slips out. The hot-and-cold start to his NRL career continues.

New Zealand Warriors 6-0

Good defence from the Bulldogs as Konrad Hurrell attempts to barrel his way over the line but he's dragged out. Matulino again got the Warriors on the front foot from a nice offload.

New Zealand Warriors 6-0

Penalty for the Warriors as the ball was stripped from Tomkins.

A nice kick from Shaun Johnson rolls out just a couple of metres out from the Dogs line. The Warriors looking more settled on both attack and defence so far.

New Zealand Warriors 6-0

Some quick hands sees Corey Thompson race for the corner, but the cover defence from the Warriors in the form of Leuluai and Tomkins forces Thompson to the lose the ball just short of the line. Warriors scrumfeed.

The Bulldogs on the attack once more as the Warriors are penalised.

New Zealand Warriors 6-0

The Warriors players have now stood there and just watched the kickoff roll dead. So the Dogs will get a chance to hit straight back.

The shift of Matulino to the second row sees immediate benefit. He got the arm free in the tackle and offloaded to Leuluai on the burst. He drew the fullback and found Sam Tomkins, who opens the scoring this afternoon.
