Will the Bulldogs be able to break their duck on the weekend? It has been three matches with no points on the board in this latest campaign from the Canterbury side. The Dragons though are in exactly the same boat, sitting winless.

Can the Bulldogs find an extra bit of offensive power?

So it has been three straight losses for the Bulldogs in this campaign. Can they get the kickstart that they need? They opened with now what appears to be a very credible 2-8 loss against the Eels.

They did alright in a 16-24 loss against the Cowboys, before struggling to make any impact against the Sea Eagles. So there have been a few moments of hope for them in this otherwise dire campaign.

The 24 points that they have put on the board only, will be something of a concern for them. The Bulldogs suffered losses in their two games against the Dragons last season, getting heavily beaten 12-36 and 4-40.

Our betting prediction:
Under 34.5 Points Total

The Bulldogs have played three times before at the Bankwest Stadium and have won two of those fixtures. Can they get another there which would ease so much pressure?

There is only the one change to the starting line up having been made from their loss against the Cowboys. That is Kieran Foran coming in to replace Jack Cogger.


Can Dragons cash in on their form against the Bulldogs?

The St George Illawara Dragons have been all over the place. Like the Bulldogs, they have not managed to pick up a single point this season. They hit a low last week as they faced the Warriors.

The Dragons were kept off the scoreboard in an 0-18 reverse. That followed better efforts against the West Tigers and the Panthers. But still, that is a tally of 74 points conceded by them.

That’s more than the Bulldogs, but the Dragons have done a much better job in attack, despite not scoring last week.

There have been plenty of changes in the lineup for them including Adam Clune coming in for his debut.
