Bulldogs Head Coach Des Hasler has named an unchanged side for Friday night's Bandaged Bear Cup clash against the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium, with Greg Eastwood set to play after missing Friday's game at the eleventh hour.

Josh Jackson has once again been named on an extended bench after stepping in for Eastwood and playing his second NRL game in as many weeks, in the Bulldogs 32-20 win over the Wests Tigers at Allianz Stadium on Friday night which saw them notch up their sixth straight win.

Friday's round 19 match will also be Kiwi International Sam Perrett's 150th first grade game.

Both sides will do battle for the Bandaged Bear Cup which is played each year in honour of the hard work and dedication shown by the Doctors and staff of Bulldogs community partner, The Children's Hospital at Westmead. Now in its fifth year, the Bandaged Bear Cup clash will once again see thousands of hospital staff and their families in the crowd at ANZ Stadium.

The Children's Hospital at Westmead will not be the only charitable cause supported on the night, with Premium and recently re-signed partner, Doltone House handing over the sleeve asset on the Bulldogs playing jerseys to the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation.

The Foundation, which is committed to raising awareness and finding a cure for asbestos-related cancer Mesothelioma, was established by the Signorelli family as a tribute to their father and founder of Doltone House Group, Biaggio Signorelli.

Mr Signorelli passed away from Mesothelioma in May 2008.

The Bulldogs take on the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium as part of the NRL's rivalry round on Friday night with kick off at 7.35pm.

Bulldogs Toyota Cup coach Andy Patmore has named an unchanged line up to tackle the Parramatta Eels in the early game, which gets underway at 5.15pm.

Following on from their pleasing 22-16 win over the Wests Tigers, Patmore has remained loyal to the squad which, with last Friday's win have solidified their position in the top 4 on the ladder.

And in the NSW Cup, Fullback Trent Cutler has joined Adam Brideson as the most capped Bulldogs reserve grade player on 145 games and goes into this Saturday's game just 7 points behind his father Stan Cutler's 700 point haul for the club.

The team will enter this Saturday's matchup versus the Balmain Ryde Tigers on top of the competition ladder after convincingly defeating the Windsor Wolves in a 50-18 blockbuster.

This Saturday's game will kick off at 3pm at Leichardt Oval.
