Reynolds out for five weeks in blow to Bulldogs

Updated: 

Canterbury Bulldogs star Josh Reynolds will miss five weeks due to a hamstring injury.

Reynolds suffered the injury during the first half of his team's 16-10 NRL win over the Canberra Raiders in round nine.

Scans last week revealed the five-eighth would be sidelined for five weeks, the Bulldogs said on Monday.

This season is Reynolds' last with the Bulldogs, having signed a four-year deal with the Wests Tigers beginning in 2018.

The injury is a blow to the Bulldogs, who hold a 5-4 win-loss record this season to be eighth in the NRL table.

Canterbury face the North Queensland Cowboys on Thursday.
