    The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs can provide the following injury update on players who have had surgery following the end of the season and are currently in the rehab group.

    Dallin Watene-Zelezniak: Watene-Zelezniak suffered a lateral meniscal tear to his left knee and required an arthroscopy to repair the damage. The fullback missed the final game of the season, butwill be fine to start the pre-season.

    Renouf To’omaga: To’omaga had surgery on his right foot to repair an avulsion fracture following the final game of the season. The recovery time is 12-16 weeks.

    Raymond Faitala-Mariner: Faitala-Mariner had surgery to repair a small tear in his left wrist. He will be in a splint for 3 weeks and the recovery time is 6-8 weeks. The 26-year old will be right for the start of the pre-season.

    Brandon Wakeham: Wakeham suffered a fractured thumb in round 23 of the Canterbury Cup season. The half was operated on with a plate and screw inserted. He missed the remainder of the year, but will be ready to start the pre-season in November.

    Kerrod Holland: Holland sustained a posterior subluxation to his left shoulder following the Bulldogs round 24 clash against the Cowboys and required surgery to repair the damage. The 26-year old faces a 4-5 month recovery time. The outside back will be a part of the injured group and on restricted duties prior to Christmas, before joining the squad in the new year.

    Marcelo Montoya: Montoya suffered a season-ending knee injury following the club’s round 18 clash against the Broncos. The 23-year old suffered a posterior cruciate tear, lateral ligament tear as well as a medial meniscal tear to his left knee and required surgery to repair the damage. The outside back is recovering well and will commence running late in October. He will be restricted in the early part of the pre-season, before joining the main squad in December.

    Sauaso Sue: Sue suffered a torn ACL during the club’s victory over the Newcastle Knights in round 17. Surgery was required and expected recovery time is nine months. The 27-year old will be restricted throughout the entire pre-season, but will commence running mid to late November. A return to play date has not been set.

    Disappointing news about Renouf sounds like he will miss the majority of pre season.

    Hopefully Holland can get fit and healthy so he can play well in NSW Cup for 2020 and earn a new contract at another club located far far away from the Bulldogs

    That's so fucked for Renouf... hopefully Pay doesn't fuck him over as a result, hopefully he tells him that if he doesn't miss a beat in rehab / nutrition all preseason that the bench spot is still his to lose

    16 weeks should have him back just after the new year.. still more than enough time to get him ready for round 1.

    What's an Avulsion fracture of the foot Re Renouf?
    Hopefully not one of those injuries that reoccur like dodgy knees and the like.

    From memory it's when the fracture is near the ligament and part of the bone gets pulled away.

    The problem is he misses out on getting smashed in pre Christmas fitness training and will be playing catch up.

    true, but you'd think that 2 full months would be more than enough time for him to catch if he's willing.. That's if its 16 weeks.. if it ends up being 12, he'll be back late November early December, if he had surgery last week

    That’s it. It’s really up to him. If he sticks to the rehab and doesn’t blow out on food he should be ready for round 1

    Wonder how many of these injuries will be utilised as excuses for poor performance next year, also to justify removal of players.
