Dragons face setback in bid for NRL minor premiership

6:40 pm on 10 August 2009

St George Illawarra's quest for the National Rugby League minor premiership's taken a a blow with three players hit with dangerous throw charges by the match review committee.

Prop Justin Poore heads the list and could be out for up to three weeks, while Beau Scott and Matt Prior have also been handed charges that attract one week suspensions in the wake of Friday night's win over Penrith.

The loss of the in-form trio is a blow to the ladder leading Dragons who have won their last seven games to sit two games clear at the top of the NRL ladder.

The Dragons travel to Canberra to play the Raiders on Saturday night.
