Hopoate to undergo surgery

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs can confirm Will Hopoate has suffered a high-grade tear of the syndesmosis ligament in his left ankle.

The fullback was forced from the field in just the fourth minute during the club’s clash with the Wests Tigers after his ankle was caught under Tigers centre Joey Leilua and took no further part in the game.

The 28-year old will be operated on today and is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks.
