The Bulldogs enjoyed a rousing win over the Knights on Friday night but could be lamenting the loss of prop Sauaso Sue for the rest of the season.
Sue suffered a suspected ACL injury in the 26th minute after Josh King came down on his lower leg, causing it to rotate and collapse.
Sauaso Sue injured right knee as tackler comes down on lower leg causing knee to collapse in/rotate. Brings concern for ACL/MCL/meniscus injury. Bulldogs hoping no ACL involvement but said it’s not looking good. Hands on tests v accurate at assessing ACL. Fingers crossed for him pic.twitter.com/ObrfLiDLyT

Coach Dean Pay was not confident with the early outlook on the injury.
“Hopefully it is not an ACL, but it doesn’t look good,” he told reporters post-match.
Sue was not the only casualty for Canterbury on the night, with Aidan Tolman going down with a rib injury.
