St George Illawarra Head of Athletic Performance Nathan Pickworth has provided another SMAI High Performance Update ahead of the Dragons' Round 20 clash against the Sea Eagles at WIN Stadium, Wollongong. 

Pickworth rates the chances of Russell Packer (hip) and Jason Nightingale (corked thigh) and explains why Euan Aikten (hamstring) missed last weekend's golden point loss to the Raiders.

There's also some positive news for Drew Hutchison in his rehabilitation from an ACL injury suffered late last year.
