    The Canterbury Bulldogs will have to showcase their ‘dogs of war’ spirit if they are to upset the undefeated Melbourne Storm away from home. Join us for live scores and commentary from 5.30pm AEST.

    After a great start to their 2012 campaign under new coach Des Hasler, the Canterbury Bulldogs have lost their way over the last few weeks, with bad habits from last season creeping into their play.

    Their loss to the Rabbitohs last week was easily their worst performance of the season. Hasler, predictably, came out and attacked the performance of the referees.

    However, it was impossible to gloss over how badly the Bulldogs played last week.

    This week Canterbury face the only undefeated team left in the competition.

    When writing about the Storm, it would be difficult to overstate how good they have actually been this season. They basically hit the ground running, and even in their closer games, they have looked a class above every one of their opponents.

    The Storm have an incredible record at home at AAMI Park and it is impossible to tip against them in this game.

    I think we will see the Bulldogs improve on their performance last week but I still can’t see them troubling the Storm all that much.

    I’m tipping the Storm to win 32-18.

      Melbourne Storm 12 Canterbury Bulldogs 6 – Bulldogs will get a lot out of that game. At the end of the day their halves didn’t give them enough. They lost composure on the last tackle a few times there. Too much for Ben Barba to do.

      Melbourne Storm 12 Canterbury Bulldogs 6 – The Storm werent at their best tonight but still got the win. Hard to pick a man of the match. Smith played well as did Pritchard.

      Melbourne Storm 12 Canterbury Bulldogs 6 – Another penalty against the Dogs. A strip, two in the tackle. The Storm kick deep into the Bulldogs half. They are 20 out from the Bulldogs line on tackle one. Keeping is simple here now.3 minutes let and they go left wthrough Bromwich. They work towards the posts. Slow play the ball. Slater almost vaught them napping there. Almost a try. Its a change over though. Only 2 minutes left.

      Melbourne Storm 12 Canterbury Bulldogs 6 – Scrum win Melbourne. A Scrum penalty for the Dogs taking too long to pack the scrum. terrible! Storm kick for touch. Hurts as much as the time lost there. Storm 30 out from their line.

      Melbourne Storm 12 Canterbury Bulldogs 6 – 6 minutes left now as the Bulldogs are deep in Storm territory. They get a penalty late in the count and tap the ball. They are just 10 meters out now as they come center field.A run around by Ennis and they are 3 meters out. Then they lose it, knock on right at the try line. Bad play. Ennis is playing poorly. 5 minutes left.
