The prospect of missing the State of Origin series decider was too much of a gamble for St George Illawarra fullback Josh Dugan, who will miss the Dragons’ do or die clash with the Roosters on Saturday after taking an early guilty plea.
Dugan was charged with a grade one shoulder charge on Penrith fullback Matt Moylan in the 25-10 loss to the Panthers at Penrith last Saturday night.
The Dragons had wanted to fight the charge, but if Dugan was found guilty he would have been rubbed out for two weeks, ending his hopes of playing for NSW.
Rookie fullback Adam Quinlan is expected to take Dugan’s spot for the Dragons.
