That seemed to be the case for the first two rounds of 2018, with Tolman named on the bench.
This hasn’t seemed to stop clubs making inquiries about his availability though and the rumours persist with the Sharks reportedly the frontrunners to sign him should he be granted a release.
It’s said that the Bulldogs have not been shopping Tolman around but would not stand in his way should he ask for a release.
“We’ve had no formal discussions with Aiden’s management about his future,” said Bulldogs CEO Andrew Hill.
“There is always speculation around player movement in our game.”
