Gillett received the good news from a Brisbane specialist after scans revealed that the Broncos forward did not have to go under the knife.

Gillett initially feared he would have to withdraw from the Kangaroos' train-on squad just days after being added to it.

He had been nursing the shoulder injury since the State of Origin series and was concerned it might required an end-of-season reconstruction.

But the Broncos officially dismissed those fears on.

"No surgery will be required for Matt," Brisbane's high performance manager Jeremy Hickmans said on the Broncos' website.

"He has a sore tendon in his shoulder but nothing surgical will need to be done.

"Matt will be fine to play in the Four Nations tournament if he is selected."

The 24-strong Kangaroos Four Nations squad will be announced next month.

Meanwhile, young forward Tevita Pangai and fellow 2016 Broncos debutant Herman Ese'ese have been rewarded with new two-year deals.

The Broncos have also signed Pangai's older brother Mosese, a centre or winger from second-tier Queensland Cup side Townsville.
