    Mitsubishi Electric Bulldogs coach Steve Folkes has again named a rookie to make his first grade debut for the Club this Saturday in the Dogs Telstra Stadium clash against the Sea Eagles. Youngster Cameron Phelps will start alongside Jamaal Lolesi in the centres.

    Phelps has been a regular in Premier League after a very impressive Jersey Flegg season with the Bulldogs last year where he was chosen in the NSW U/19's.

    Phelps replaces the injured Willie Tonga who is expected to miss at least 8 weeks of football having experienced a total rupture of the medial ligament in his right knee during the match against the Broncos last Sunday.

    Folkes has retained young forward Dallas McIlwain who made his debut last round for the Dogs having been a late replacement for the injured Reni Maitua. McIlwain was start at lock with Tony Grimaldi moving into the second row.

    In the first good news for the Bulldogs playing stocks in recent weeks Adam Perry returns after recovering from a calf injury that he suffered against the Wests Tigers back on 27 March, 05.

    Perry will come off the bench with Brad Morrin,Chris Armit and Charlie Tonga.

    There isn't much difference between the two teams. Almost an even bet but I just think the doggies have it in the backs (fullback excepted) for about 2 to 4 points game margin. Hope I am wrong of course.

    They've certainly been hit pretty hard with injuries . That would be the weakest team they have fielded for 12 months.

    It's time for the Eagles to step up & win this game.

    IMO we have them in the pack, and probably the bench. Inexperience in the centres with Phelps is a help to us.

    Will be a tough game, but if we don't win this, we are never going to beat the Dogs.

    Thats a weak forward pack.

    MB i put it to you that our backrow is slightly better than grimaldi, ryan and McIlwain

    We should be favs on paper, but thats pre night game.

    Im hoping our biys put that rumour to rest and the fluffy factor continues.
