High Performance Update – Rd 8, 2014
Rabbitohs High Performance Manager Troy Thomson updates us on the casualty ward at the Rabbitohs in this week’s High Performance Update.
It's been a busy few days for Thommo following last week's game, with Apisai Koroisau, Greg Inglis, Joe Picker, Kyle Turner and Dave Tyrrell all receiving attention.
Thomson gave an update on Apisai Koroisau who sustained a shoulder injury in Friday's match against the Bulldogs.
"Api got that caught up in one of the tackles he was making," said Thomson.
"He wasn't able to get back onto the field for that game, but he's pulled up really well and he's been doing a lot of rehab the last two days - he'll be right to go for Friday night."
Greg Inglis seemed to be in some discomfort during the match, with Thomson citing that the Rabbitohs fullback had received knees to the back during the game.
"GI copped a couple of knocks there during the game playing the way he does," said Thomson.
"He just got some knees in the back there - again he's pulled up really well this week and been looking after it well."
Thomson also updates us on Joe Picker, who sustained rib cartilage damage but still managed to return to the field.
"Certainly one of the tougher efforts I've seen," said Thomson.
"He was in a fair bit of pain there with his ribs - he smashed up some of the rib cartilage. Again he's pretty sore this week so we'll just see how he tracks for the rest of the week."
