Benji may still need surgery

St George Illawarra halfback Benji Marshall will meet with specialists to determine whether he needs surgery on his injured ankle.

Scans confirmed on Thursday that the 30-year-old had suffered a high ankle sprain as a result of a Greg Eastwood tackle in the Dragons’ NRL golden-point elimination final loss to Canterbury last Saturday.

Regardless of whether surgery is required, Marshall will not be required to line up for New Zealand in their end-of-year Test series against Great Britain in November.

Marshall was controversially overlooked for a playmaker role despite regular halfback Shaun Johnson also being grounded with an ankle injury.
