Bulldogs fresh faces line up

Rising Bulldogs prop Sam Kasiano caps his transformation from NYC teen to NRL star this weekend when he dons the Bulldogs’ No. 10 jersey against the Tigers at ANZ Stadium.Kasiano already has plenty of headlines this year for his outstanding form in the club’s pre-season trials – and it was made obvious why yesterday when he was named ahead of Bulldogs stars Michael Hodgson, Chris Armit and Mickey Paea. He will be joined in the Bulldogs forward pack by second-rower Jake Forster, who stunningly beat prized signing Frank Pritchard for a start. Pritchard, Kasiano, Aiden Tolman, Kris Keating and Trent Hodkinson will all make their debuts for the club.

Round 1 Teams – Bulldogs Update

With less then a week to go before the season starts, I have decided to start updating coaches with as much ammunition as possible regarding the team line ups before the ‘Unlimited Trades’ ability sorely comes to an end. For new coaches please be aware that after Round 1 closes for the commencement of the season, you will begin to only be able to use 2 Trades per round with a total of 30 trades allowed for the season. Also new coaches be aware that the head to head matches Within the NEX Cup do not begin until Round 4, but if your in it for the car you definitely want to hit the ground running. Only one week till all is right within my universe – bring on the league !!

Coach Moore said Heka Nanai ($84,100 CTW) and Junior Tia Kilifi ($132,500 CTW) were in a race to replace injured tryscoring machine Bryson Goodwin (toe) ($131,900 CTW) on the wing for the round one clash with Newcastle, while Yileen Gordon ($107,400 CTW/2RF), Gary Warburton ($181,800 2RF) and Mickey Paea ($161,100 FRF/2RF) were in the frame for injured second-rower Dene Halatau (ankle)($174,800 2RF/CTW). Ben Barba ($91,100 HLV) is likely to be used as a bench utility in 2010 with Michael Ennis ($265,700 HOK) to take over from the great Hazem El Masri as goalkicker.
