Scott set for neck op but OK for Origin

Queensland prop Matt Scott says he will probably require end-of-season neck surgery but has confirmed he will run out in Wednesday’s State of Origin series decider in Brisbane.

The Cowboys workhorse was a late arrival at the Maroons’ Gold Coast camp ahead of Origin III after remaining in hometown Townsville to receive treatment on his neck.

Scott says he has carried the injury for years but expects to go under the knife at season’s end – an operation similar to the pre-season surgery Cowboys teammate and NSW rival prop James Tamou endured.
