Brisbane Broncos star Thomas Flegler was suspended due to…

Thomas Flegler’s rehabilitation will continue for another four weeks after he received a positive update on his shoulder injury from medical staff today.

Flegler is highly unlikely to require surgery on the injury he suffered in the round five match against the Tigers.

“We are seeing some positive signs but there is still some way to go,” said Dolphins’ Head of Performance Jeremy Hickmans.This is a genuine nerve injury and they traditionally can take some time to heal properly, although time frames can change.


“The great news is that it is almost certain he will not require surgery and these things can also improve quickly.


“At this point he will continue that rehabilitation and we are hopeful that in that four-week time frame we may see some further improvements that move him closer to returning to the field.”

The Gold Coast Titans were the hardest hit by injuries in Round 10, with four players leaving the field early during their win over North Queensland.


The Titans provided updates after Kieran Foran, AJ Brimson, Harley Smith-Shields and Phil Sami went for scans, with all four players out of the team’s Magic Round clash against Newcastle.


In a shattering blow, Brimson is set to miss six to eight weeks with a groin injury, however in some good news, Smith-Shields will avoid surgery for a pec injury and only miss six weeks despite the initial prognosis he’d be out for the rest of the season.


Skipper Foran and Sami both sustained hamstring injuries, with Foran week-to-week and Sami to miss a month.
