Five new faces for Bulldogs

A total of five new Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs will be unveiled as the Club kicks off its 2011 NRL campaign against the Wests Tigers in front of what is expected to be a bumper crowd at ANZ Stadium on Monday night.

As the Bulldogs Membership total passed the 2010 mark of 12,000 today, head coach Kevin Moore named Trent Hodkinson, Kris Keating, Aiden Tolman, Sam Kasiano and Frank Pritchard in his 17 to tackle the Tigers.

Hodkinson, Keating, Tolman and Kasiano will start the match, while Kiwi international Frank Pritchard will enter his first competition game in blue and white from the interchange bench.

Moore said finalising his squad for round one was a difficult task.
