Team Update: Round 8 v Tigers
Des Hasler and Ivan Cleary have confirmed their 19-man squads for tomorrow’s clash at ANZ Stadium.
The Bulldogs named 21 players on Tuesday under the new NRL rules, with 17 named plus four extra reserves.
Francis Tualau and Renouf To’Omaga drop out of the 21-man squad that was named on Tuesday, with Matt Frawley and Reimis Smith still in line to take to the field on Sunday afternoon.
Meanwhile, the Tigers have omitted Jj Felise and Kyle Lovett from their 21 that was named on Tuesday.
Cleary has also included half back Luke Brooks in his 19-man squad, who has not played since picking up a hamstring injury against the Melbourne Storm in Round four and could be a late inclusion into the final 17 tomorrow afternoon.
The match will see Aiden Tolman play his 150th NRL match for the Bulldogs, in addition to the players wearing a specially designed Anzac jersey for the first time ever.
The design of the jersey features cascading poppies which represent those who have fallen to protect us. The names of Bulldogs alumni who served in World War II are printed on the front of the jersey and the top is embroidered with the first ever premiership match played by the club, which was on Anzac Day in 1935, against the North Sydney Bears at North Sydney Oval.
