EXPERIENCED prop Brok Harris is a doubt for the Dragons’ Guinness PRO14 clash with Toyota Cheetahs at Rodney Parade this weekend.

The South African suffered a pectoral injury during the 34-19 defeat by Glasgow Warriors last Saturday – it was the same day that Harris turned 34.

He was forced to leave the field towards the end of the first half at Scotstoun Stadium, with Wales international Aaron Jarvis replacing him for the remainder of the match.

“Brok has an injury to his pectoral muscle which is a concern,” said Dragons boss Dean Ryan.

“We will wait and see what the scan says, but it is a potential big loss for us. We don’t know if he misses the game yet.”

Hooker Richard Hibbard missed the defeat in Scotland with a shoulder injury, and on the Wales and British & Irish Lions ace, Ryan added: “He is getting closer.

“He is around training now, which is great to see, but whether his return is this weekend or not, we’re not sure yet.”

Ryan was also asked if current Wales squad members Cory Hill and Elliot Dee, who have sat out the first three rounds of the Six Nations through injury, could be made available for Saturday’s game.

He said: “I don’t think either are ready to play. They’re certainly not available for this weekend.”

Meanwhile, Ryan said the region had heard nothing from the PRO14 about whether the home fixture against Benetton next Friday could be in doubt over coronavirus.

He said: “We haven’t heard that. It’s obviously only sporting gatherings in Italy, so we’ll plan for the game going ahead. We’ll wait and see what happens next.

“It is frustrating for us because we were unhappy to lose that game (when it was postponed earlier this month due to the weather).

“I know weather conditions were poor, but we were unhappy because of how early the decision was made.

“We’re in Europe and to play for what will effectively be 14 weeks on the bounce with a pretty small squad will obviously have an impact on us.

“There’s obviously bigger things at play than whether we get a game against Benetton.

“Let’s just see what people in higher positions than me decide about whether teams are travelling or not.”
