Mason set for

Hard running Bulldogs forward Willie Mason says he just wants to get on with playing football after coach Steve Folkes informed him that he will be playing first grade again ahead of Sunday's trip to Auckland.

Mason's omission from Canterbury's opening round game against the Rabbitohs caused a bit of a stir, with the Test forward threatening to walk out unless he won a recall for this weekend's game against the New Zealand Warriors.

After some soul-searching, big Willie says that Folkes has told him he's happy with his attitude.
