Utai Returns
to Bulldogs Line up

Matt Utai has been named on the wing for the Mitsubishi Electric Bulldogs for this Friday nights with rookie Sonny Bill Williams moving to the interchange bench.

Utai will be returning from suspension with Bulldogs coach Steve Folkes showing great faith in the blockbusting winger. Jamaal Lolesi will vacate the wing and move into the centres where he will partner Willie Tonga.

The experienced Adam Perry gets his chance in first grade replacing Corey Hughes who has been ruled out for up to 6 weeks due to a collar bone injury. Perry has been in great form in the opening two rounds of the Premier League competition.

Willie Mason has moved from the second row to the front row to replace the injured Dennis Scott with Roy Asotasi getting a start in the second row.
