Dean Young cleared to play

Dragons Fans and Dean Young fans in particular will be excited to know that the Dapto Junior was this week cleared by the specialist to take part in the pre-season fixtures.

It has been a long and complicated road to recovery for the 24 year old who suffered a grade three medial ligament strain in his left knee in Round 25 of season 2006.

Young managed just 3 NRL games last season after suffering several complications including infection and bruising of the bone.
