The Canterbury Bulldogs have been hit with the news that four of their players won’t line up against Brisbane on Saturday night.
Josh Morris, Greg Eastwood, Raymond Faitala-Mariner and Tim Browne have been scratched from the side.
“We have lost four overnight,” Hasler said at Belmore on Firday.
“J-Moz (Morris) failed a fitness test yesterday. Greg Eastwood was ruled out yesterday. Ray (Faiala-Mariner) was ruled out overnight as too was Tim Browne.
“The good news is that David Klemmer and Josh Jackson will both play.”
Hasler said his side had struggled with injuries but wasn’t using it as an excuse.
“At some stage, sometime, we might get our full team on the park,” Hasler said.
“But that is part of the landscape. It is something that is not uncommon. Clubs have been in worse positions and you combat that with your depth.”
