The Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs can confirm that fullback Will Hopoate has tonight been taken to hospital following a heavy collision in the Bulldogs loss to the Roosters.

Hopoate left the field late in the game following a sickening head clash with Roosters forward Zane Tetevano.

“He has gone to hospital for a check up on a severe concussion and there could be a fracture around his eye. We will get it checked out,” said Coach Des Hasler following the loss.

Hasler also confirmed that winger Kerrod Holland had sustained an injury following the club’s 28-24 loss to the Roosters at Allianz Stadium. 

Holland crossed for the opening try of the game, but was forced from the field moments later with a shoulder injury

“He has hurt his shoulder and I think he will be out for a while, which is a shame because I think he would have kicked a couple of those goals.”

When more news comes to hand about both Will and Kerrod, the club will keep you all updated.
