Canterbury Bulldogs half-back Trent Hodkinson is reportedly in huge doubt for Saturday’ preliminary finals clash against Penrith after failing to fully recover for a knee injury.
The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Bulldogs star has not trained all week and remains a massive doubt to take the field against the Panthers this weekend.
Hodkinson injured his left knee against Manly last week after a clash with Sea Eagles centre Jamie Lyon.
The 26-year-old was forced from the field in the opening half, but returned to the ground to kick the match-winning field goal.
However, Hodkinson is struggling to regain full fitness after the incident and could be replaced Moses Mbye to start alongside Josh Reynolds in the halves.
Hodkinson will also reportedly require off-season surgery to repair the injured knee.
