    Gotta feel for Levi Dodd. Finally, gets back on track, secures a 1yr deal in a first grade squad only to be cut out after 4 games and gone for the season.
    Chin up Levi, keep your dream alive mate.

    SMAI High Performance Update: Round 9
    Wed 26th April, 05:00PM

    [​IMG]
    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).

    - guys with all the player movements going on a few in the injury ward - the writing is already on the wall ie ' long walk off the short plank'
    We know Dugan is Sharks bound and Mosey back to ESL but what about these guys and fan favourites McCrone and Marketo!!
    I see Hutch as the forgotten man also..,
    Thoughts??

    Mathews is back training which imo is amazing.

    Glymin is basically gone this injury thing is a bit of a ruse.

    Dodd and Hutchison are both doing rehab work but don't see them playing at all this year.
