Berrigan escapes surgery
The Brisbane Broncos say hooker Barry Berrigan is unlikely to have further surgery on his neck before the upcoming NRL season.
Berrigan has been cleared by team medicos of any damage to the area where two vertebrae were fused during surgery in late 2004. He will visit his spinal surgeon in Brisbane this evening after complaining of pain in the area for the past few weeks.
