Dureau faces spell on sidelines

Catalan scrum half Scott Dureau faces an unspecified spell on the sidelines after having a tumour behind his eye removed.

Dureau, 26, is now recovering from the operation in his native Australia and his club say the tumour has been removed without any complications.

Head coach Laurent Frayssinous said: “It’s obviously really bad news that affects the club in its entirety but we need to be united and strong and overcome that as a team.

“Scott must focus on his health and on his full recovery and we want to express our support to Scott and his family.”

Dureau joined the Dragons from Newcastle Knights two years ago and was named in the Super League Dream Team in both 2011 and 2012.

He also played for the Exiles against England in the mid-season internationals last season.
