The Warriors have slumped to their second defeat of the National Rugby League season, going down 32-18 to the Bulldogs at Mt Smart Stadium.

The visitors jumped out to a 16-nil lead with a three try blitz in the first ten minutes before the Warriors struck back twice to trailing 16-12 at half-time.

The lead changed hands several times in the second stanza before the Bulldogs put the home side away with two late tries.

The Warriors now have one win, two losses in 2012, with their next clash against the Titans in Auckland.
