JOSH REYNOLDS

The former New South Wales five-eighth is an integral piece of the Bulldogs fierce pack. 

Not only an x-factor on attack, Reynolds aggression, defensive play and motor are unmatched in the NRL. 

After creating a comfortable bond with Trent Hodkinson over the past few seasons, Reynolds has taken on a bigger role in 2016 with new halves partner Moses Mbye.

His good form this season sees him well and truly in the mix to put on a blue jersey come State Of Origin time.

JAMES GRAHAM

The Bulldogs Captain and English International is the heart and soul of this Bulldogs pack. 

They're a side that boasts plenty of size and strength, and James Graham is the man that puts them on the front foot week-after-week. 

While Graham is difficult to tame, the Roosters will need to shut him down if they're any chance of over coming the pack.

SAM KASIANO

The 2016 season has seen a new and improved Sam Kasiano, and the big New Zealand International has been rewarded for his pre-season effort. 

He's trimmer, faster, as strong as ever and in career best form. 

Acting as somewhat of a second half, Sam Kasiano is the complete package when it comes to forwards in the NRL. 

He can pass, offload, tackle, play big minutes and damage defensive lines with his aggressive hit-ups. 

He'll be coming off the bench in this one, and will be the ideal replacement for the starting forwards.
