That Bulldogs team appears to be more put together than the Storm. It looks like they're performing a diagnostics on their spine to see how Taaffe, Hutchinson and Sexton play alongside Burton & Mahoney. Then to help them out, they've named a few starting forwards just to make sure they have the time and space to play.

Meanwhile Melbourne have seemingly named a 2nd XIII with Papenhuyzen getting an early run. There's a few players there that could feature but it appears they're looking at this trial to get a closer look at their depth and how some of the younger players are progressing.

That no. 15 for the Bulldogs is pretty good. Wish Hass would run that hard lol.

Dogs looking pretty sideways in attack to me... don't seem to be troubling this storm defence all that much at the moment

So lifting the leg is a penalty now... well at the discretion of the ref of course ... can't see how that will be an issue

Sexton has been dogs best half on the night.

Has been against reserves, but he's been far better at straightening up the attack
