Joe Byrne has had a rough time with the media this week, with the Bulldogs playing the 2017 season at home in the NRL.

The star fullback was involved in a series of controversies that led to the sacking of coach Luke Beveridge and the removal of coach Michael Maguire from the bench.

Byrnies absence has led to questions about his future at the club.

Borrehans name was put on the trading block on Friday, and it is understood the Bulldogs were considering a move for a veteran backrower.

The Bulldogs are set to host a media briefing on Monday, with their next fixture to be against the Manly Sea Eagles at Allianz Stadium.
