The Western Bulldogs have been dealt a blow ahead of the finals, with Jordan Roughead and Jason Johannisen both ruled out of this weekend’s elimination final.

Roughead tore a tendon off his finger two weeks ago against North Melbourne, while Johannisen has a calf strain.

Coach Luke Beveridge said Roughead may face season ending surgery, but a decision on that is yet to be made.

Jordan Roughead won’t play this week. He has been pretty sore. He ripped a tendon off one of his fingers against North Melbourne two weeks ago,’’ Beveridge said.

“He has also been sore in a couple of other areas. Between Will, Tommy Campbell, Tom Boyd and Ayce Cordy we will need another ruckman.

“We will lose Jason as well. He has got a minor calf injury.”


  1. Will be right. Bring in M.Boyd, Muphy, Morris, T.Boyd, Campbell. Out Cordy, Webb, Goodes, JJ, Roughy. With T.boyd and Cambpell it gives us more options in the ruck and a bail out kick in the forward line because everyone knows finals footy is contested Footy
