Easton Wood

Bulldogs pair sidelined after hamstring setbacks at training

Meanwhile, former captain Easton Wood has also suffered a hamstring injury, although it is less severe than Jong's.

"Unfortunately from training today, Lin has suffered a high-grade hamstring injury," Bulldogs medical services manager Chris Bell said. 

"It was during our match simulation session and he pulled up after accelerating.

"We're going to work through a process with Lin over the coming days to determine the extent of his injury and his return to play plan." 

Calls for Bulldogs premiership captain to take pay cut over gambling concerns

Wood questioned the role of gambling advertising in the AFL last week on Twitter, saying it's "out of control and I think it needs to change".

In a conversation with journalist Damian Barrett on The Sounding Board podcast, Hutchison said that while he didn't agree with Wood's opinion, he believes the Bulldogs defender has strong enough character to make a stand on the issue.

"I love the fact (Wood) has a strong view - that’s what we need from our footballers," Hutchison said.

"(Gambling revenue is) probably five percent of his wage.
