This could be a major distraction in his preseason training. St George Illawarra Dragons fullback Tyrell Sloan suffered a serious injury during the Koori Knockout tournament.

   According to News Corp, Sloan faces a nervous wait in the coming days after the rising star suffered an apparent syndesmosis injury in an off-season tournament last week. The Dragons full-back is understood to be meeting with surgeons in the coming days to determine whether he will require surgery on the injury. Currently, the publication reported that the surgery would result in a three-month recovery.

   That would mean, if he needs surgery, he won’t be able to start sprinting until early December this year, putting an end to pre-season training. Dragons fans and officials hope he won’t need surgery and that the injury is minor, meaning it won’t interfere with the start of his 2024 season. This isn’t the first time an injury has bothered Sloan this year. At the start of the year, he was sidelined from football with a minor calf strain.

   Incoming coach Shane Flanagan has previously made no secret of his aim to provide Sloan with an important pre-season as he and Zac Lomax battle it out for the Dragons’ first shirt in 2024.
