The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have offered the following statement after today receiving a breach notice in relation to an incident involving Josh Jackson in Round 2 of the season.

“Player welfare is the absolute priority of everyone at the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and we are supportive of the NRL’s new rules surrounding the assessment of concussion,” said Chief Executive Raelene Castle.

“We don’t agree with all the findings in the breach notice and, as per the process, will be using the next seven days to have those discussions with the NRL.”

The Bulldogs will offer further comment once the appeals process is complete.
