Fans of the Bulldogs might be especially keen to sign up, as they have just 7 games on free-to-air TV in 2023.

Storm vs Bulldogs match preview

The Bulldogs will need to play their very best if they hope to take out a win this week and climb the ladder.

The Bulldogs' last 2 clashes vs the Storm saw them completely dominated, losing 44-0 in April 2022 and 52-18 in April 2021.
Melbourne Storm vs Canterbury Bulldogs
The Storm placed fifth in the NRL Premiership last year, with the Bulldogs coming in 12th.

It has been a rough few years for the Bulldogs who have failed to make it to the top 8 for 6 years in a row.

Melbourne will be missing star player Cameron Munster following his finger injury in last week's game.

As such, Storm coach Craig Bellamy has subbed in Tyran "Wishy" Wishart.

Even with the loss of their star playmaker, we think the Storm will continue their dominance vs the Bulldogs.
