Mitsubishi Electric Bulldogs forward Adam Perry returns to the Dogs team for this Sunday's clash in Auckland against the Warriors. Perry suffered a gluteal tear (buttock injury) against the Raiders in Round 15.
Perry will start from the interchange with Corey Hughes reverting back to the dummy half role having filled in for Braith Anasta at five eight last weekend.
Anasta will return along with Bulldogs captain Andrew Ryan who were both missing last weekend due to Origin duty.
Tony Grimaldi will move back to lock with Ryan to partner Nate Myles in the back row.
