St George Illawarra half Ben Hunt has been struck down by injury in a crushing hit to the Red V under Anthony Griffin.
The Dragons said in a statement that Hunt had suffered an impact fracture to his fibula in the WIN Stadium match.
The former Bronco was sent for scans on a badly corked calf but it was discovered that the injury was much worse.
The club is yet to determine a return-to-play timeframe for Hunt.
MORE TO COME.
