The Eels will help bring back the competition in a week's time when they travel to Suncorp Stadium on May 28th to face last year's elimination final opponents the Broncos. Arthur's side started the season immaculately, and sit atop the ladder with two wins over the Bulldogs and Titans and following their trip to Brisbane will face Manly in round four.

The Canterbury Bulldogs NRL team, based out of Belmore in the Canterbury-to-Bankstown area of Sydney. The Bulldogs club was formed in 1935 when it was admitted Canterbury star Kieran Foran is firming in his chances to return for the Bulldogs when the NRL resumes after a shoudler injury.

For someone who has sacrificed so much to play NRL this weekend, Canterbury forward Adam Elliott can't wipe the smile from his face.

Just over two weeks ago his partner Robyn gave birth to their first child, Lennex, in her home town of Darwin.

Not long afterwards, Elliott had to leave his two loves to return to Sydney to restart training with the Bulldogs ahead of the recommencement of the season.

  Canberra Raiders' emerging forward Jack Murchie joins injury-ravaged Warriors The injury-stricken Warriors have gained a welcome boost with Raiders' young forward Jack Murchie joining the side effective immediately. The Milton Ulladulla Bulldogs junior, who made his debut in 2018 and has played in three games for the Raiders, will link up with the Warriors in their Central Coast training base. It's a much-needed leg-up for the Kiwi outfit just over a week before they restart their season against the Dragons on May 30th, after re-locating from Auckland earlier this month. Canberra confirmed Murchie's departure, with the 22-year-old thanking the club for giving him an NRL opportunity.

The Bulldogs reported that the Canterbury junior suffered another grade two tear after a previous hamstring injury. Raiders forward John Bateman should be right to go when the NRL resumes on May 28 after undergoing shoulder surgery but the club will wait before confirming his return.

Baby Lennex needs vaccinations at six weeks and time to build up his immunity before he is able to travel home to Sydney with Robyn, meaning the couple are separated until at least the end of June.

In an era of FaceTime and unlimited wi-fi, Elliott is coping well enough on his own, knowing his partner and child are surrounded by her family in Darwin.

And while he has been spared the sleepless nights that come with a newborn, his favourite outlet - rugby league - keeps Elliott motivated to provide for his family.

"It's a bit of a tough slog," he said on on Thursday.

"I had a day off yesterday so I had a bit of a sook on the couch at home.

"When I'm at training it takes my mind off it.

"I'm so lucky that nowadays we've got FaceTime."

When border restrictions and greater precautions were first taking hold across the country, they had to decide whether to stay in Sydney or relocate to Darwin where Robyn could be with her family.

It allowed Elliott to be at the birth, and with coronavirus cases so low in the Northern Territory, they were comfortable Lennex would be born into a safe environment.

Going to training at Belmore is now a welcome distraction for Elliott, who can easily find the positive in being separated from his young family.

"I'm just lucky that I love (rugby league) so much and I missed it so much over the break that I was excited to get back, see my teammates, get the footy in my hands and put the Bulldogs kit on," he said.

"I've always loved being a part of a team and I've got to look at it as a positive.

"I can still come down here and do what I love and am passionate about and I can use it as motivation to provide for my family.

"I'll have a story for him when he's a bit older and I can tell him I had to shoot off down here in the middle of a pandemic and play some footy while he was up there with mum."
