NRL: Bulldogs star set for surprise recall

Canterbury Bulldogs are set to recall Kyle Flanagan to their side for the round-five clash against Penrith on Sunday.

The Bulldogs are priced at 13/2 to pull off a big upset and defeat the Panthers and Flanagan will now get another chance to shine in the halves.

Big future doubts

The future of Flanagan has been shrouded in doubt for the some time. The halfback was in and out of the team last season and could not nail down a regular place in Trent Barrett’s side.

He was dropped midway through 2021 and ended up playing just four games towards the end of the campaign as the
Bulldogs finished bottom.

Even so he failed to secure a move elsewhere during the close season and appeared to be in limbo with the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs have made a host of top quality signings during the off-season and although there have been signs of improvements they are still 1-3 after the opening four rounds of the NRL campaign.

The 44-0 drubbing against Melbourne Storm at the weekend may now have prompted Barrett to have a rethink.

Flanagan back in

Reports are claiming that Flanagan will now take the No.7 jersey and start in the halves alongside Matt Burton. The news also comes just days after Flanagan was linked with a potential swap deal with the Wests Tigers that would see Luke Brooks move the other way.

If Flanagan does return against the Panthers it will mean Brandon Wakeham dropping out of the side.
