Western Bulldog Dylan Addison fractured his jaw on Saturday when he collided with Bomber Stewart Crameri. The club has confirmed that Addison will miss three to four weeks as he recovers from his injury. Meanwhile, Crameri has been offered a two match ban for rough conduct by the Match Review Panel.
Addison’s injury adds to the list of Bulldogs injured during the match last weekend, with his teammates Robert Murphy likely to miss a week with a hamstring strain and Ryan Griffen having injured his calf. However, on a positive note, Lindsay Gilbee and Nathan Djerrkur are both returning from injury for the Bulldogs, with Gilbee expected to replace Addison in defense.
