The Mitsubishi Electric Bulldogs Premier League team will play in the preliminary finals on Saturday (27 Sept @ 5.25pm) at Aussie Stadium against the St Marys-Penrith Cougars.
The Cougars have hit some excellent late season form accounting for the highly fancied Eels in convincing fashion in their elimination semi-finals match this weekend, 32-10.
Likewise the Dogs have been in great form and with no injuries in the Club the Bulldogs will be at full strength and fresh after a week's rest.
In their only meeting this season back on the 29th June, the Bulldogs ran away with the game 40-2.
