Rabbitohs High Performance Update - December 10

High Performance Manager Troy Thomson gives us an update on the condition of our World Cup players, including Greg Inglis, plus an insight into the rehab training group.


Rabbitohs fans may have seen Greg Inglis nursing an arm post World Cup final but Thomson has revealed that the injury is nowhere near as bad as first feared.


"A bit of a scare there for Rabbitohs fans and us staff... Greggy got a bit of a whack on his thumb but the Australian medical staff were really good," he said.


"They thought it was some bruising and that settled down pretty quick.


"He saw us at the start of the week to get the all clear and everything looks good."


As for the rehab group, Beau Champion and Chris Grevsmuhl are progressing well: "Champ (Beau Champion) is coming along really well, we're really happy with how his ankle is at the moment," Said Thomson.


"Chris (Grevsmuhl) has come off that ACL, he's about 4 months post op.


"He's about in-line with Champ in terms of a return."


Jason Clark battled an ankle injury towards the end of the season and off-season surgery means his return to pre-season is delayed. "Clarkey (Jason Clark) is a long way off, he's just come out of a boot," revealed Thomson.


"He's doing a little bit of walking and as much training as he can but that's going to be a slow injury."
