Dogs Face Sudden Death Semi in Toyota Cup
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Toyota Cup side heads to Brisbane on Saturday for a must win second semi final against the Melbourne Storm.
The Bulldogs have added bench half Samisoni Langi to the list of 17 players involved in the loss to the Cronulla Sharks at the Sydney Football Stadium in week one of the Finals, the Sharks producing a near flawless second half display to finish over the top of the Dogs to the tune of 28 points to 12.
The Bulldogs led the match 12-0 at half time but were overrun by the 63rd minute, with Cronulla scoring six tries in all during a half in which they completed 22 of 23 sets and received six penalties to the Bulldogs none.
Saturday's match against the Storm presents a different kind of challenge after they ended the Sydney Roosters run of 11 straight victories on Friday night.
