Penrith Panthers prop Reagan Campbell-Gillard has suffered a broken jaw during a pre-season training session on Monday but is expected to be available for round one.

Scans confirmed a small fracture in Campbell-Gillard’s jaw which is unrelated to the injury that sidelined the 25-year for a majority of last season.

He is expected to miss four to 10 weeks, meaning he could return for the club’s pre-seasons trials against South Sydney on February 23 and Parramatta the following week.

Panthers general manager Phil Gould confirmed it was not a recurrence of his previous jaw injury.

“It’s not in the same place as his previous fracture,” Gould posted on Twitter.

“It’s not as serious. He will see (the) surgeon to make sure but we anticipate no surgery required.

“He won’t be chewing his food during the Christmas break. But he will be right for trial matches.”

  1. Probably had an altercation with Gus over his 10 year plan.

    On a serious note the Panthers can’t take a trick when it comes to injuries. Do they need to look at their training techniques?
    Cheers

  2. On a serious note, Penrith does have issues with injuries. It can’t be anything more than bad luck but geez, it is frustrating.

    I remember the Rooster fan that wears the dish glove on his head, said he put a spell on Penrith once but took it off before the 2003 GF. Sucker….

    I reckon Penrith would’ve won the 2010 premiership if they didn’t have so many injuries (tongue in cheek)

    • No chance mate.
      Yep of late the Dragons haven’t been well behaved I agree.
      Interesting to see where JDB’s future lies.
      Definitely taken the heat off Hayne
      Cheers

  3. This guy will be a bit gun shy next season after 2 broken jaws. I don’t believe he will be quite the same aggressive player he once was.

  4. I am not so sure on him playing next year I think it’s his time to settle down for a little bit and than come back because 2 broken jaws in one year isn’t that great I just think he needs a break off of footy for a little bit
