Catalan Dragons scrum-half Scott Dureau has cleared another hurdle in his bid to resume his career.

The 26-year-old Australian made his comeback last month after undergoing surgery in January to remove a brain tumour but complained of double vision during his second game back at Widnes 10 days ago.

Dureau was rushed to a hospital in Manchester but was able to fly back to France with his team-mates the following morning and has been having further tests in both Perpignan and Toulouse.

In a statement, a Catalan club spokesman said: “The exams underwent by Scott Dureau at the neurological surgery department of the Toulouse Rangueil Hospital have found nothing wrong and are reassuring.

“Scott Dureau will have a final exam next Thursday to determine if he can receive the green light to come back to the competition.”
