A bruising, hard-fought 28-22 point win in round five means there will be no room for complacency when Kurri Kurri host Wyong on Saturday.
The Bulldogs, sitting third on the Newcast Rugby League table, are doing their sums like all the other finals aspirants and coach George Ndaira said every game at this time of year was important.
Not that Ndaira is overly concerned about his team taking things likely, with their willingness to turn up each week and play to their best the most pleasing aspect of their season.
“The boys always turn up to play and this week will be no different,” Ndaira said.
The Bulldogs attacking options were on full display against Maitland in last week’s Mercury Shield victory and Ndaira said having multiple attacking options was something they had worked on.
“We’ve worked on our shape, we’ve got plenty of quality right across the field. Players who are able to make the right decisions in attack and defence.”
Ndaira believes Kurri’s blend of experience and local talent will serve them well once the semi finals arrive.
“One of the great things about Kurri is that I’m not a one-man show, there are a lot of blokes with a lot of experience who the younger blokes can turn to.”
One of those experience players, Jesse Royal is likely to miss another week, but Justin Peterkin will come back into the side after serving his suspension.
Kick off is at 3pm.
