Canterbury's NRL title aspirations have copped a blow with star Josh Reynolds ruled out for five weeks with a hamstring injury.
Reynolds suffered the tear in the first half of the Bulldogs' round nine win over Canberra and failed to return to the field.
His absence is a big hit for coach Des Hasler, whose side sit in the top eight after winning four of their past five matches.
Reynolds played a significant part in the run, having tallied three tries, 18 tackle breaks and 10 offloads this season.
Utility Matt Frawley is likely to move into the halves to partner Moses Mbye, who had previously been moved to hooker as part of the Hasler's halves rotation.
The Bulldogs take on ninth-placed North Queensland on Thursday.
