Blacklock and Gasnier ruled out

Dragons centre Mark Gasnier and winger Nathan Blacklock were last night ruled out of Friday's clash with the Broncos in Brisbane after failing to complete training. Gasnier (quadriceps) and Blacklock (knee) were earlier named to play in the final regular season match for 2004, but they were unable to train through their injuries yesterday afternoon. Gasnier will be replaced by John Wilshere and Blacklock will be replaced by Hassan Saleh.
