St George Illawarra Dragons winger Yaw Kiti Glymin remains upbeat after making his first-grade debut despite picking up a hamstring injury in the second-half against the North Queensland Cowboys at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday.

The Arncliffe Scots junior hopes he made his junior club proud and is positive he will bounce back and return stronger after the setback.

Glymin, 21, believes the squad has the depth and capability for the Red-and-Whites to rejoin the winning circle and join NSW Cup side, the Illawarra Cutters, on an impressive charge towards the finals.

“I’m really excited to have made my debut, especially in front of the home crowd in Wollongong, but unfortunately I got injured in the second half,” said Glymin.

“That dimmed my debut but footy is footy and I’m just going to have to bounce back and try and get fit again.

“I will have to go for scans and get that assessed by the physio and just go from there.

“It’s that time of the year with all the injuries building up but we’ll be better and stronger next week.

“Coming from Arncliffe Scots, I’m hoping I did them proud with how I played.

“Although the loss made it four in a row, the boys here are full of heart and energy and we’ll bounce back from this.

“The NSW Cup has been good, the boys picked up the win on Saturday despite being short on players who had been promoted to first-grade.

“It’s been a great season so far and they have had a few narrow losses but towards the back-end of the season we’re going to stride home strongly into the finals period.”
