Barba injured in Bulldogs win

2:57 pm on 27 July 2013

The Canterbury Bulldogs' NRL premiership aspirations could be rocked by an ankle injury to Ben Barba sustained in Friday night's 40-12 win over the struggling Parramatta Eels.

Barba limped off just 10 minutes into the game after damaging his right ankle scoring the Bulldogs' third try to put a dampener on a good night for Des Hasler's men.

Barba is expected to be out for a number of weeks.

The win took Canterbury to within a point of fourth-placed Manly.
