O'Meley out for Bulldogs


Test prop Mark O'Meley is among three injury-forced omissions to the Bulldogs side originally named by coach Steve Folkes.

O'Meley is suffering from some general hamstring tightness and will not play the New Zealand Warriors on the Gold Coast this Saturday. Club doctor Hugh Hazard expects O'Meley to be right for the Dogs? first round NRL match. Ben Czislowski (groin) and Brad Morrin (wrist) are the other changes to the 20-man squad.

Jon Green, Daniel Conn and Chris Tuatara have been added to the interchange bench, with Chris Armit moving from the bench to the starting line-up.

Bulldogs: Luke Patten, Namila Davui, Reni Maitua, Willie Tonga, Hazem El Masri, Daniel Holdsworth, Brent Sherwin, Chris Armit, Adam Perry, Roy Asotasi, Willie Mason, Andrew Ryan (c), Tony Grimaldi.
Interchange: Nate Myles, Jon Green, Corey Hughes, Trent Cutler, Ben Roberts, Chris Tuatara, Daniel Conn.
