VB NSW CUP MATCH PREVIEWS - ROUND TWELVE
Auckland Vulcans Vs Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs
Birkenhead Domain, Saturday, May 19
Kick-off: 12.30pm (NZST)
Referee: Daniel Caddy
Summary: The Auckland Vulcans put on a show for all of those in attendance at Mt Smart last Saturday as they ran in 50 points against a strong Wolves side while the Bulldogs will be ruing the one that got away as they blew a 16 point lead to ultimately draw with the Illawarra Cutters at Belmore.
The Dogs appeared to have had the two points in the bag, however some great defence mixed with some excellent finishing saw the Cutters take a well deserved competition point back to the south coast with them.
No doubt the Vulcans would have penciled in this fixture way back in December when the draw was released following their heartbreaking Grand Final loss to the Dogs at ANZ last year. Glen Fisiiahi will be a big loss for the Vulcans here as he has earned another shot at the NRL following injuries to Kevin Locke and Jerome Ropati lately.
