They promised an #NRL premiership raid, but delivered well below what was predicted.

If Shane Richardson and Russell Crowe can learn anything about how to recruit halves in the NRL, they need look no further than their opposition on Sunday afternoon at Homebush. Whilst the combination of Chris Sandow and the mercurial John Sutton continue to struggle for consistency, the new pair at Belmore delivered a seamless display on debut for the Bulldogs. Not that Crowe wants to replace his halves - I would never suggest such a thing.
Trent Hodkinson and Kris Keating unveiled a patient and controlled style for Canterbury last week and if they can produce more of the same it could choke the life out of the home side. I'm tipping they do and the Dogs defence does the rest. More importantly, tune in to see Mick Ennis and Isaac Luke go head to head; fingers crossed Ennis packs the first scrum with some words of encouragement for his opposite number. Not sure what to say about the Idris v Inglis battle, which is apt because this will likely leave you speechless as well.
