Cronulla Sharks star Josh Dugan has been rushed to hospital over fears of a neck injury following an accident at training this morning, reports The Daily Telegraph.

However, tests cleared the veteran of any serious injury in a sigh of relief for the Sharks camp.

He is expected to be available for Round 1 of the NRL season.

“It was more a precautionary measure,” media spokesman Rob Willis told The Daily Telegraph.

“He got a heavy knock to the neck/shoulder area. They were just very cautious and didn’t want to take any risks.”

Duhan has played 207 NRL games since making his first-grade debut in 2009, with previous stints at the Canberra Raiders and St George Illawarra Dragons.

The injury-prone 30-year old is in the final year of a lucrative contract he signed with Cronulla ahead of the 2018 season.
