Catalan report positive news on Dureau


12th June 2013

Catalan Dragons scrum-half Scott Dureau has cleared another hurdle in his bid to resume his career.

The 26-year-old Australian returned to action last month after undergoing surgery in January to remove a brain tumour but complained of double vision during his second game back at Widnes Vikings 10 days ago.

Dureau was rushed to a hospital in Manchester but was able to fly back to France with his team-mates the following morning and has been having further tests in both Perpignan and Toulouse.

In a statement, a Catalan club spokesman said: "The exams underwent by Scott Dureau at the neurological surgery department of the Toulouse Rangueil Hospital have found nothing wrong and are reassuring.

"Scott Dureau will have a final exam next Thursday to determine if he can receive the green light to come back to the competition."

Dureau was left out of the Dragons team that played Hull FC last Saturday and the club do not have a fixture this weekend because of the International Origin Game.
