EbeneNews – AU – LIVE: Bulldogs star reported after eye gouge


    More bad news for the Bulldogs, with Jayden Okunbor helping to take off with what appears to be a serious knee injury

    As the Panthers make another move to the right side of the floor, Okunbor appears to stop and jump to intercept the ball and he has fallen like a sack of potatoes

    It’s contactless, which isn’t usually a good sign at all, and Ben Ikin, in the comments, is concerned that this is a broken ACL for Okunbor

    « It’s just a pop and that ligament running through the middle of the knee joint just breaks and you lose all stability

    « It can happen without major incident as you saw there It was just a stop and prop to change direction »

    There is now confirmation from the sideline that Okunbor did injure his ACL as he tells Bulldogs medics he « heard a pop »

    Referee Henry Perenara calls a stoppage of play and calls veteran Panthers James Tamou to confirm the player the Panthers complained about, and he points out Thompson

    This happened when Tamou had the ball and Thompson was attempting to drop it with a teammate

    As the players clash, Thompson’s right arm wraps around Tamou’s head and the replays show his fingers clearly digging into Tamou’s eye quite aggressively

    If replays are something to buy, you’d think Thompson has big, big problems for this

    As commentators note, it’s amazing that Tamou was so calm about all of this after being at the end of such an action

    « It’s as clear as I’ve seen it, » Ben Ikin says of Fox League comment

    He truly is a class veteran and a leader and that is exactly why the Wests Tigers will bring him next season

    Penrith went up close in his previous offensive foray, with Brent Naden just inches from crossing the try line before the Bulldogs defense held up well

    However, next time on the court the Bulldogs had no response to a high-profile game that of course was started by Nathan Cleary, who else?

    Cleary has had 20 assists this season, but it wasn’t, with young fullback Daine Laurie doing the damage instead

    Panthers coach Ivan Cleary has big wraps on Laurie and you can see exactly why as he battles through a number of tackles before unloading to a charging To’o for a four points easy

    Andrew Johns says Bulldogs should reconsider dropping some players after announcing club will engage in mass cleanup in preparation for new coach Trent Barrett

    The club have announced that Kieran Foran, Aiden Tolman, Marcelo Montoya, Kerrod Holland, Jack Cogger, Sauaso Sue, Tim Lafai and Isaiah Tass will leave at the end of the season

    However, Johns believes the club should consider keeping Foran and Sui for 2021

    « I’m a huge fan of Kieran Foran, » he told Wide World of Sports’ Immortal Behavior

    « I know he’s got a lot of money and he’s had injury dramas But if he was willing to play for $ 300-400,000 – I’d roll the dice with Kieran

    « He’s still a world class player Sauaso Sui is another one I would keep, I think he’s a very good player »
