Lewis Tierney ruled out for a month

Catalans winger Lewis Tierney will miss the start of the season with a facial fracture.

Tierney, 25, suffered the injury in the pre-season win against Toulouse at the weekend, and scans have determined the extent of the injury.

He is expected to be sidelines for four weeks.

The Dragons are already missing his fellow Englishman and ex-Wigan winger Tom Davies, who continues his rehabilitation following a bad ankle break last season.
