Saleh To Miss A Week

St George Illawarra winger Hassan Saleh will miss one week after taking an early guilty plea for a grade one dangerous throw in the Dragons two point victory over the Eels last weekend.

No replacment has been named at this stage but several players are being considered as replacements for Saleh including Wise Kativerata, John Wilshere, David Howell and Michael Crockett.

The Dragons will also be without Craig Stapleton after he suffered a shoulder injury in the same game and will be missing for 6-8 weeks. No replacement has been named for Stapleton at this stage either.

The Dragons face the Raiders at Canberra Stadium this week as they look to notch up back to back victories while the Raiders will be looking to keep their early season unbeaten run in tact and keep a firm grip on top spot of the NRL Telstra Premiership
