NRL leaders forced to come-from-behind for latest victory.
Canterbury has maintained its spot at the top of the NRL ladder with a hard-fought 16-12 win over the fast-finishing Warriors in New Zealand, reports Back Page Lead.
It took a desperate tackle from Bulldogs centre Josh Morris on a flying Shaun Johnson with three minutes to go to seal their seventh straight win in front of 17,673 fans at Waikato Stadium.
The result took the Bulldogs out to a four-point lead at the top of the table, although Manly can close that up again when they host Newcastle on Monday night.
In what was a home fixture in Hamilton, the Bulldogs withstood some early Warriors pressure before slowly taking control.
Their big pack were again impressive, with prop James Graham a stand-out.
