Jong documentary takes fans inside the Club

Lin Jong chats motivation for taking part in '287 Days'.

Western Bulldogs midfielder Lin Jong says giving fans an insight into a player’s recovery, and the key role the Club plays, was motivation behind agreeing to take part in 287 Days, a documentary documenting his comeback from a serious knee injury.

Jong ruptured his ACL against Melbourne in Round 13 last year, and cameras began rolling almost immediately, tracking Jong’s progress through the eyes of his partner, teammates, Club staff and of course Jong himself in the lead up to his return to Etihad Stadium in April.

“I thought it’d be a good insight for people to see and not just for what the player does, but how much the club helps out,” he told SEN on Thursday morning ahead of the documentary’s release at 5pm Thursday on westernbulldogs.com.au.

287 Days: Lin Jong and the Bulldog spirit

Jong had 17 possessions, seven score involvements and kicked a goal against Sydney last weekend, his third game back, but said he’s stil working toward getting his full confidence back.

“Speaking to players like Clay Smith and Matt Suckling they’ve said it takes a handful of games to get your full confidence back,” he said.

“I mentioned to them before games I kind of still think about the knee and wonder what would happen if I did it again which obviously isn’t great to think about, but just something you have to go through mentally.”
