SYDNEY, June 16 AAP - Canterbury duo Sam Perrett and David Klemmer are expected to be sidelined for around six weeks due to injuries suffered in Sunday's loss to Parramatta.

Both Perrett and Klemmer left the field in the first half of the Eels' 22-12 win and didn't return.

The Bulldogs confirmed on Monday that fullback Perrett suffered a medial ligament injury in his knee which will likely rule him out of NRL action until round 20.

Interchange forward Klemmer suffered a syndesmosis injury which means he is also unlikely to return to the field before round 20.

The news is another blow to the Bulldogs who have dropped three games straight and fallen from the NRL competition lead, after emerging as the in-form team in the first half of the season with seven successive wins.

The Bulldogs face another test against Canberra in the nation's capital on Friday, with their NSW halves Trent Hodkinson and Josh Reynolds set to back up just 48 hours after State of Origin II.

Prop Aidan Tolman missed the Eels match with a hamstring injury and is a 50/50 proposition to take on Canberra.

Canterbury also have Josh Morris (knee) sidelined until round 18 and Frank Pritchard has been ruled out for the season with a pectoral muscle injury.
