High Performance Update - Rd 10, 2014
Rabbitohs High Performance Manager Troy Thomson updates us on the casualty ward at South Sydney in this week's High Performance Update.
Adam Reynolds was the main concern to come out of round nine, with the halfback briefly leaving the field, only to return to help his side to victory.
"He just got caught up in a tackle there early in the piece and jammed up his back," said Thomson.
"He has a pretty ordinary back at the best of times, and tough little bugger that he is, he was able to get through for us and continue on - he'll be right to go on the weekend."
Thomas Burgess is now clocking up time in the NSW Cup, with Thomson declaring the English international available for selection.
"Big Tommy's been pushing the limits - if it was up to him he'd have played two 80 minute games," said Thomson.
"I don't try to argue with him too much because he's a lot bigger than me. But he came back last week and played about 40 minutes for us and pulled up really well and was able to get through about 70 minutes for the Bears on the weekend.
"He's still got to work on a little bit of fitness which comes with playing games - he's pretty much available for selection as soon as Madge needs him."
Both Issac Luke and Luke Keary continue to make huge steps in their recoevery, with Thomson citing that both have been out on the training paddock barking orders.
"They did pretty much the whole training session yesterday and both are going really well - hopefully they'll be ready to go in the next couple of weeks."
