Warriors beat Bulldogs 36-16
The New Zealand Warriors have kept their perfect 2008 NRL home record intact, overcoming the Canterbury Bulldogs 36-16.
That save proved the turning point for the Bulldogs in the first half and they hit back with two tries to lead 12-10 at halftime.
It was all the Bulldogs in the early running of the second half but the Warriors were more decisive when presented with try-scoring opportunities.
Vatuvei notched his third double of the year, Sonny Fai scored his first in Warriors colours and Lance Hohaia and Ruben Wiki also got across the line.
A try to Heka Nanai was all the Bulldogs had to show for their second-half efforts as they failed to bounce back from last week's 12-40 hiding by the Roosters.
