Group 4 first division: Bulldogs hoping to rebound against Robins

After travelling to Tamworth last weekend and putting in a credible display in losing 34-18 to North Tamworth, Gunnedah returns home on Saturday for a clash against South West Robins.

BACKBONE: Bulldogs rake Callum Hayne is part of the side's spine.

The Robins, last year’s defeated grand finalists, are going through a major rebuild this season and have displayed patchy form.

The side is coming off a 48-16 defeat of Collegian last round. But given the Warriors’ horrendous form this season, that scoreline is almost a fail.

Gunnedah’s loss to the Bears was their first of the year after three rounds, and post-match Bulldogs coach Seam Hayne was not upset with his side’s performance – giving them seven out of 10. He was particularly impressed with their defence.

Wee Waa hosts North Tamworth on Sunday and will endeavour to pick themselves off the floor – again – after a 116-4 humiliation against a red-hot Narrabri last round. In the other Sunday match, Narrabri plays Collegian in Tamworth.
