    • But take that last try where an obvious Dogs knock on was called 6 to go.

      FairPlay | May 23, 2014, 10:37PM
    • So a 2nd week the dogs are denied a clear try. Yet last week they fought back from it, not sure they can now, that was an atrocious call.

      Bloke | May 23, 2014, 8:28PM
    • Would it be possible to get headgear for Mick Ennis that incorporated a muzzle? We'd all be much better off.

    • The NRL can rule on forward passes. Have you been to a rugby (union) match lately?

      Gekko | May 24, 2014, 6:19PM
    • Yep another pathetic display from video refs. Why the NRL cannot rule on forward passes I don't understand - useless and just another reason to piss fans off!

    Canterbury Bulldogs v Sydney Roosters

    That was a fairly crazy affair at times. There will be some fallout. There were a couple of ordinary tackles, a stink, the Klemmer "goose step" incident and the NRL's concussion rules will be questioned again.

    But the Roosters get 2 much-needed points.

    That's all from here.

    Catch you next time

    SYDNEY ROOSTERS 32 (A Minichiello 2 S Williams 2 S Kenny-Dowall N MacDonald tries J Maloney 4 goals) bt BULLDOGS 12 (M Brown 2 tries K Inu 2 goals) at ANZ Stadium. Referee: Ashley Klein, Adam Gee. Crowd: 19,088.

    Roosters 32 Bulldogs 12. The score flatters the Roosters a bit, but they did what they needed to do.

    Into the final minute. Roosters 32 Bulldogs 12

    And here's another moment of madness. Klemmer has raised his leg in a tackle by Warea-Hergreaves (no idea what he was thinking) and he's on report.

    71st min: The Roosters are running away with this now. Minichiello scores after some scrappy play following a spilt bomb. It's ruled no try on the field, but it looks OK - and the video ref agrees. Maloney converts.

    Roosters 32 Bulldogs 12

    67th min: From the restart, and with the Bulldogs down a man, the Roosters score through SBW. He simply muscles his way through 4 defenders. Maloney converts.

    Roosters 26 Bulldogs 12

    And now this game's officially had it all. The Roosters kick a 40-20 and as they try for a quick restart (under the new rules introduced this year) Tim Lafai knocks the ball away and is sent to the sin bin for 10 mins.

    64th min: SBW to SKD and it's a try to the Roosters. A (very) short ball (slight question mark on it) to Kenny-Dowall and he strolls over. Maloney converts.

    Roosters 20 Bulldogs 12

    Pearce and Maloney need to take control of this and get their side home. Neither has done a lot tonight.

    The official crowd is just over 19,000. Slightly disappointing, but plenty of big names out obviously.

    18 mins to go and it's Roosters 14 Bulldogs 12.

    57th min: Try to the Bulldogs, and they're well and truly back in this one. Tuivasa-Sheck has failed to cover a grubber kick (he's had a bit of a shocker in fact) and Mitch Brown collects the crumbs to score. Inu hits the post with the conversion.

    Roosters 14 Bulldogs 12

    The Bulldogs are getting a great run with the penalties tonight, it's 10-4 in their favour and they're on the attack. It's not over by a long stretch here.

    Back to the game: the Roosters are building some pressure after a few Bulldogs mistakes. It's still 10-8 Roosters, but they're on the attack.

    It appears that because Perrett did not leave the field immediately after the high tackle but has not returned for the second half it counts as a replacement and is not a free interchange. Questions will be asked about the Bulldogs handling of it though.

    Sonny Bill Williams crosses for the Roosters second try.

    We're under way in the second half.

    In 40 mins of footy there was a stink, 2 players collected high and some queries about why Perrett was still on the field and not off being assessed for concussion, a video ref pushing the wrong button for a "no try" try, 3 tries actually scored, one controversially disallowed ... Just another night of rugby league. All in all, very entertaining. 

    The refs have restored order, and the Bulldogs get a penalty, right in front. The half-time siren has gone so they take the 2 points.

    It's been a crazy half of footy.

    Roosters 10 Bulldogs 8

    And there's another high tackle, this time Sam Moa on Mick Ennis. And they're all into it. Players come from everywhere to get involved in some push and shove. There will be some fallout from this melee.

    Maloney may have something else to worry about after a high shot on Perrett. It didn't go on report, but that doesn't mean he's in the clear.

    The Roosters hang on after some good pressure from the Dogs, but the Bulldogs force another line drop out. In truth the Dogs did not put many questions to the Roosters. They are starting to miss their halves. Roosters 10 Bulldogs 6, 2 mins to half-time.

    The Bulldogs are building some good pressure here, and have had the Roosters defence rocking. It's still 10-6 Roosters. JWH and Klemmer still at it too

    30th min: Bulldogs try. A simple shift to the left and Mitch Brown steps off his left to score. Krisnan Inu (remember him) smiles and drills the conversion from touch.

    Roosters 10 Bulldogs 6

    It's getting a bit feisty here. David Klemmer and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves are staging a running battle.

    22nd min: The Roosters are in again - and fortunately the video ref wasn't required to use either button this time. Sonny Bill scores after a big right-foot step. Maloney converts.

    Roosters 10 Bulldogs 0

    17th min: What a fiasco! But the Roosters are in ... finally. And it's the debutant MacDonald who has scored. Maloney bombed to the wing and MacDonald flew high to take it and touch down. It was referred upstairs where the video ref promptly hit the wrong button and ruled "no try", but the on-field ref corrects the ruling and it's a try. If they can't hit the right button ...

    Anyway, it's Roosters 4 Bulldogs 0

    12th min: Controversy here. The Bulldogs have been denied a try to Moses Mbye on debut. He looked to have grounded the ball on the line, but there was a query and the ref sent it up to the video ref, who agreed it was not a try. I've gotta say it looked like a try to me. Still no score here.

    Bit of push and shove between Frank-Paul Naauasala and Aiden Tolman after a penalty. Dogs on the attack now

    It's been all the Roosters early. The Bulldogs are struggling to get out of their own half.

    Again the Roosters threaten. Sonny Bill-Williams starts a raid down the right and Tuivasa-Sheck grubbers back on the inside before Anthony Minichiello takes out Sam Perrett. Not sure what the Count was thinking. But it's a penalty to the Bulldogs.

    The Roosters threaten again and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck throws an ordinary pass behind McDonald. Busy start for the youngster. And again the Bulldogs are lucky to escape.

    2nd min: And the Roosters have gone the length from the kick-off and nearly come up with a try. Winger Nene McDonald, on debut, knocks on from a bomb. The ref sends it upstairs for review, but he's ruled no try - and it is not try. Lucky escape for the Bulldogs.

    And we're under way here.

    Given all that's happened in recent weeks, you'd expect the Roosters to come out firing tonight.

    They're very short with the bookies.

    The Bulldogs forwards have been great this year, so the clash up front, as always, will be crucial.

    The surface looks a little slippery, so given there were only 17 points scored last time they met, there might not be many tonight.

     

    Welcome to tonight's coverage of the Canterbury Bulldogs v the Sydney Roosters.

    Last time they met (in round 5) the Dogs landed a drop goal late in the piece to win 9-8.

    The Bulldogs are missing Trent Hodkinson, Josh Reynolds, Tony Williams and Josh Morris, who are all on Origin duty with NSW, while the Roosters have lost Michael Jennings, Daniel Tupou and Aidan Guerra to Origin and Boyd Cordner to injury.

    But the big story tonight will be how Roosters halves Mitchell Pearce and James Maloney react to being dropped for Origin 1.

    It will also be very interesting to see how the Bulldogs go without their halves.

    Kick-off is not far away.

    CANTERBURY BULLDOGS v SYDNEY ROOSTERS at ANZ Stadium, Friday 7.45pm

    Last meeting: Round 5 2014 - Bulldogs 9 bt Roosters 8 at Allianz Stadium

    Head-to-head: Bulldogs 78 Roosters 80 Drawn 5

    TV: Live, Channel 9

    Ladbrokes: Bulldogs $2.90 Roosters $1.42

    Betfair: Bulldogs $3 Roosters $1.50

    Michael Chammas writes: The Bulldogs will be without their halves while the Roosters will be advantaged by the axing of Mitchell Pearce and James Maloney from the Blues team. With no Trent Hodkinson, Josh Reynolds, Josh Morris and Tony Williams, the Bulldogs are going to struggle.

    Tip: Roosters by 10

    AAP writes: The Bulldogs strong start to the season has resulted in Josh Reynolds, Trent Hodkinson, Josh Morris and Tony Williams all receiving State of Origin call-ups. Coach Des Hasler has gone for an old and new approach to fill in for his NSW-bound halves, with youngster Moses Mbye due to partner Reni Maitua while Krisnan Inu will also get his first crack at NRL in 2014. The Roosters have lost Michael Jennings and Daniel Tupou to the Blues while Aidan Guerra is away with the Queensland squad. Boyd Cordner is also missing after suffering an injury in last weekend's 42-10 loss to North Queensland.

    Key: Mitchell Pearce. After his one-week ban for a boozy night out and then losing his NSW No.7 jersey, the Roosters halfback will be keen to deliver a big game against an understrength Bulldogs line-up.

    BULLDOGS: Sam Perrett, Mitch Brown, Chase Stanley, Tim Lafai, Krisnan Inu, Reni Maitua, Moses Mbye, Aiden Tolman, Michael Ennis (capt), James Graham, Josh Jackson, Dale Finucane, Greg Eastwood. Interchange: Pat O'Hanlon, Tim Browne, David Klemmer, Sam Kasiano, Corey Thompson, Lachlan Burr (two to be omitted).

    ROOSTERS: Anthony Minichiello (capt), Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Samisoni Langi, Mitchell Aubusson, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, James Maloney, Mitchell Pearce, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Jake Friend, Sam Moa, Dylan Napa, Sonny Bill Williams, Frank-Paul Nu'uausala. Interchange: Daniel Mortimer, Isaac Liu, Kane Evans, Remi Casty.

    Referees: Ashley Klein, Adam Gee

    • Disappointing coverage. You should know by now that every report on a Roosters' game must include a big wrap for Pearce and Maloney, to indicate why they are the only possible choices for Origin selection. Please try harder next time.

    • Where the Dogs playing soccer? Play for 90 minutes pretending you are hurt. Good on the chooks for playing League where you play for 80 minutes pretending you aren't hurt. Ennis is a disgrace to the game. Clemma caught at the 4th knee lift. Lift you game young fella!
