Dragons Injury Update
St George Illawarra Dragons have confirmed that halfback Benji Marshall will undergo scans on his ankle once swelling has subsided later this week.
Marshall was forced from the field with the injury and was unable to take any further part in the 11-10 extra-time golden-point loss to the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park on Saturday.
Furthermore, second-rower Tyson Frizell has undergone scans which have confirmed he has suffered a torn tricep but will not require surgery.
Additionally, fellow second-rower Joel Thompson has re-aggravated a minor hamstring strain and will commence his rehabilitation over the coming weeks.
Both Frizell and Thompson additionally suffered these respective injuries in the same fixture against the Bulldogs.
All Dragons players will undergo compulsory medicals facilitated by the Dragons High Performance Department over the coming weeks prior to their departure for holidays.
The Dragons are expected to return in early November to commence their pre-season training.
