Gillett doubtful for Four Nations

Brisbane forward Matt Gillett admits he may have to miss this year’s Four Nations to get his troublsome shoulder sorted out.

Gillett returned to the field yesterday to help the Broncos defeat the Dragons 12-8.

But the back-rower said his shoulder problems are ongoing and he may have to go under the knife at the end of the NRL season.
“I’m not sure if I’ll need surgery,” he told

“I’ll just get through the year and see what happens. At the moment it’s going pretty well and hopefully at the end of the year, I won’t have to worry about it and move on.

“There’s a tendon problem in there. It’s deep in the shoulder so I can’t really ice it or any of that sort of stuff.

“I just have to get through rehab and get it strong again. The staff are happy with how it’s going so it’s looking positive.

“[Four Nations] is a long way away, it’s something I’m not thinking about but if I’m fit and well then there’s no doubt I’ll be happy to do my job there. It’s not my focus though.

“I have a job to do here at the Broncos and that’s win week-in, week-out and give it a good crack come finals. Four Nations will be a reward at the end of the year if I’m fit and healthy.”
