New Dog Keath happy with ankle treatment

Former Adelaide defender Alex Keath is aiming to be in full training with the Western Bulldogs after Christmas following off-season ankle surgery.

In an unusual scenario, Keath put off a planned holiday to Vietnam when Bulldogs medical staff advised the Crows that he needed an operation rather than the non-surgical rehabilitation that Adelaide had settled on.

But Keath is comfortable that the right decision was ultimately arrived at and is confident he will be ready to take the field for his new club in round one.
