Western Bulldogs duo Taylor Duryea and Roarke Smith have been ruled out of this Sunday’s clash with St Kilda.

Duryea and Smith recently suffered some quad tightness, and are expected to return to full training in the next 1-2 weeks.

Midfielders Patrick Lipinski (concussion), Tom Liberatore (knee), Lin Jong (hamstring) and Rhylee West (knee) missed the Bulldogs opening round loss to Collingwood in March, but are expected to be available for selection this week. 

First-year midfielder Riley Garcia is unavailable for an indefinite period as he continues his recovery from a knee reconstruction.
