A Warriors side that has found some defensive steel in recent weeks faces a Canterbury outfit that is struggling to prevent points.
Wins over Wests Tigers and the Sharks in the last two weeks were featured by conceding just 16 points in each contest, a noted achievement considering they'd conceded an average of 28 points across their first 18 matches of 2021.
The Bulldogs have conceded 628 points in 20 matches, the worst in the NRL.
Stretching back to last year, Canterbury have won five of their last 40 matches.

Wayde Egan v Jeremy Marshall-King. This pair are similar in style when it comes to directing play. Marshall-King has looked very dangerous out of dummy half at different times this season, while Egan has six try assists and seven line-break assists from his darts as hooker.
Addin Fonua-Blake turned in a super performance against the Sharks last weekend. In 55 minutes of game time he ran for 222m (including 95 post-contact metres) and had just one missed tackle. The Bulldogs need to keep an eye on him of they're to win this one.
