We just saw a tip tackle from Tony Williams that went unpunished. It was no different to what Jordan McLean did. Hmm.
Johnson caps off a super Warriors set with a perfectly judged kick into the corner. The Warriors have been impressive in the opening 15 minutes.
Bulldogs kick deep to Tomkins who has the ball stripped in the tackle. Warriors penalty.
Sam Tomkins is learning very quickly to pop up on Ben Matulino's shoulder. Matulino looks good slightly wider in the secoond row
Hurrell gets dragged into touch on the Warriors' last tackle this time. But they are looking likely. Johnson, Matulino and Tomkins have all made good starts.
Tomkins has a brain snap and makes a late call to try and catch a wide kick before it went out and slipped out of bounds.
Interestingly, the Warriors haven't yet made a change and wer're into the 23rd minute. Previously under Matt Elliott, the first was made after about 16 minutes.
Bulldogs with a great chance to launch an attack now from 10m out.
Big Manu made a real mess of a grubber in goal, but somehow got away with it. He turned, slipped and fell out of play but so did the Bulldogs attacker and the ball slowly bounced into touch.
23 mins gone and the Warriors lead 6-0.
Reynolds sends a high ball down to Laumape who is able to catch under no real pressure. Fifteen minutes left in the first half.
Johnson makes a break. He slipped a tackle and shot into a gap but had no support. But the Bulldogs held onto him for too long in the tackle. Warriors penalty.
Or is it, the Bulldogs are claiming a knock on, we are going upstairs.
Matulino was in the heart of it again, forcing a pass away under pressure. The ball found Vatuvei on the wing who turned and powered to the line. TRY AWARDED.
Vatuvei has his 122nd try and the Warriors have a 10-0 lead.
That's the fourth offload from Matulino and the second directly from said offloads. He's loving the extra space and is able to go to the line and offload. In the middle, he has to contend with bigger boys who are better at shutting things down.
Johnson crashes the conversion off the post. Warriors 10 Bulldogs 0
McFadden couldn't have asked for a better 30 minutes to start his reign. Just 50 to go now..
Ben Matulino loses the ball in the tackle now. Bulldogs will have a scrum from 30m out. Another big test for the Warriors defence coming up.
The Warriors pay for the handling error as Sam Perrett goes crashing over the line.
It came from another mistake from the kickoff. Dane Nielsen went high on Perrett and slipped off. Leuluai went low and couldn't hang on. Not great.
Hodkinson slots the kick from 20m out. Warriors lead 10-6.
