SMAI High Performance Update: Round 9

St George Illawarra Head of Athletic Performance Nathan Pickworth has provided another SMAI High Performance Update in the aftermath of the Dragons' 13-12 golden point loss to the Roosters on Anzac Day.

The health of Gareth Widdop (knee) has been a big talking point over the past 24 hours, with Pickworth confirming that the Dragons skipper is looking at six weeks on the sidelines.

This means Widdop will definitely miss England's clash with Samoa in the NRL Representative Round.

Pickworth also provides updates on Jack de Belin (face), Josh Dugan (hamstring) and Kalifa Faifai Loa (knee).
