High Performance Update - Rd 13, 2014

Rabbitohs High Performance Manager Troy Thomson updates us on the casualty ward at the Rabbitohs in the latest High Performance Update.

Rabbitohs young-gun Alex Johnston was a late omission from the side that defeated the Dragons on Monday night, with Thomson clarifying the situation in this week's report.

"Unfortunately AJ had a really slight strain of his quadricep there in that last training session before we played on Monday night, which was a real shame," said Thomson.

"Really low grade and we're confident that he'll be right this week."

Thomson also cited that Luke Keary was now in the final stages of his rehabilitation, with the young play-maker now not too far away from playing.

"Luke's been adding a heap to us in training," said Thomson.

"He's very, very close to playing footy at the moment so just in the final stages there, ticking off the boxes from a wrestling point of view and the tackling type scenarios."
