Mason may be dropped

POWERHOUSE Bulldogs forward, Willie Mason, faces the prospect of being dropped for this weekend?s do-or-die clash with the Melbourne Storm.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Mason, the centre of a well-publicised early-season row with coach Steve Folkes, may find himself out of the top side for this Sunday?s sudden-death final.

However the New South Wales and Australian representative player is confident of being included somewhere on the bench, despite making up part of a six-man bench that will be cut to four by Sunday.
