St George Illawarra Dragons fullback Josh Dugan has been cleared of serious injury after scans revealed a minor knee sprain suffered in Saturday night’s Charity Shield match against the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Dugan’s positive outcome is a boost for the Dragons who are set to announce their World Club Challenge squad for their match against the Warrington Wolves on Friday, February 20.

“Josh has undergone his MRI scans which have indicated he has a small knee sprain which will not impede him being able to travel to the UK for the World Club Series,” Dragons NRL Physiotherapist Dan Lawson told the Dragons website.

“We expect him to resume regular training once the travelling squad commences their preparations for the match against the Warrington Wolves later in the week.”

Jack De Belin is also expected to resume fulltime training after a virus prevented him from taking part in the Charity Shield.
