Report Card: Round 24

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs' finals hopes for season 2011 took a massive hit at Brookvale Oval, with the side losing both the match and halfback Trent Hodkinson to a calf injury. 

Whilst the side is still a mathematical chance of sneaking into the top eight if they win their last two matches, the task has been made that much harder with Hodkinson unable to complete Sunday’s clash after suffering soft tissue damage and now in doubt for next Saturday’s match against the Knights. 

In other injury news for the round, Bronx Goodwin’s season for the St George Illawarra Dragons appears over after the utility back snapped his ACL in Friday’s blockbuster at AAMI Park in Melbourne, while Warrior Michael Luck aggravated his shoulder against the Panthers on Saturday night.
