Anasta tipped
to pass fitness test

Bulldogs playmaker Braith Anasta is confident of passing a fitness test today and making a triumphant National Rugby League return at Canberra on Saturday night.

Anasta - who broke his sternum on March 29 - is keen to turn around the current woes of the Bulldogs who have lost two games straight and slid to seventh on the NRL ladder.

Anasta has been named in the starting side at his new preferred position of lock. Injury concerns also surround his teammate, class halfback Brent Sherwin, who is nursing a corked hip.
