Frizell tipped to line up against Bulldogs
TYSON Frizell will take his place in the St George Illawarra line-up against Canterbury on Monday after recovering from a rib injury.
The NSW Origin lock completed his second limited-contact training run with the Dragons on Friday and finished the session without issue.
The news comes just six days after he was taken to hospital during the Dragons' 16-12 win over the Wests Tigers, with fears of a rib fracture.
Scans on Monday cleared him of any serious injury, but Dragons medical staff said he would still be monitored during the week before a call was made on his fitness closer to game day.
However it's now understood the 25-year-old will be a certain starter at ANZ Stadium against a fired-up Bulldogs pack.
"We're going to need him," Dragons prop Russell Packer said.
"He is a world-class player and we need him healthy if that's the case."
