Clay Smith has been reinstated onto the Western Bulldogs’ primary list, ahead of a return to play this Saturday.

Smith appears set to be named for the Footscray Bulldogs when they face Geelong at Victoria University Whitten Oval this weekend.

Saturday will be Smith’s first match in over 12 months, after injuring his knee in round six 2015 against St Kilda, and undergoing a third ACL repair on his right knee.

With Smith’s return, Jed Adcock has been returned to the Club’s rookie list.

Meanwhile, Josh Prudden has been added to the Club’s long-term injury list.

Prudden ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in a VFL match against Richmond in April.
