Heartbreaking end for McInnes at the Dragons

Andrew McEnallay

The Dragons have been dealt a crushing blow heading into the 2021 season after Captain Cameron McInnes ruptured his ACL at training on Friday, bringing an end to his time in the red and white.

St George Illawarra released a statement claiming McInnes “is yet to undergo follow up consultations to establish the next steps in his recovery and return to play timeframe.”

It’s a bitter pill to swallow for Dragons fans after McInnes was awarded best-and-fairest in their past two seasons and recently finalised a deal to join the Cronulla Sharks from 2022 onwards. After a stellar individual 2020 season, the star hooker found himself on the cusp of a State of Origin debut when he was called into the NSW extended squad for last year’s series.

McInnes played 91 games in the Red V after defecting from the South Sydney Rabbitohs at the start of 2017.
