Kimmorley, Idris 'fit' to snarl for Dogs

Halfback Brett Kimmorley and centre Jamal Idris have completed an opposed training session with the Bulldogs and will be certain starters in Friday's NRL preliminary final showdown with Parramatta at ANZ Stadium.

Kimmorley has not played since suffering a fractured cheekbone in round 25 three weeks ago but returned to training last week following successful surgery on the injury.

Idris had been a concern after sustaining a grade one medial ligament strain in his knee in the qualifying final win over Newcastle last week.

But the duo completed a tough training session in Sydney on Sunday against the Bulldogs' NSW Cup side and coach Kevin Moore declared they would both face the Eels in five days time.

"They did the session today, no problems," said Moore.

"It was a good opportunity today to do some things at game speed which is a bit of a difference to normal training.

"Everyone has come through it OK."
