St George Illawarra have been handed an injury blow after scans revealed that James Graham has broken his leg.
The 33-year old suffered the injury in the first half of the Dragons’ 22-9 loss to Cronulla Sharks on Sunday afternoon.
Graham is set to spend up to eight weeks on the sidelines with a fractured fibula, while team-mate Tim Lafai is also set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering an ankle injury in the same game.
James Graham is one tough guy. Played on with a broken leg. Absolute warrior of the game. Someone I always cherish sharing the field with.

The England international managed to play on for a short time before being substituted later on in the match.
The injury comes as a blow for Paul McGregor’s side, who have now lost five consecutive matches and sit 13th in the NRL table.
