Rabbitohs High Performance Manager, Troy Thomson, updates us on the casualty ward at the Club following the weekend’s successful Auckland Nines campaign.
After both Adam Reynolds and George Burgess seemingly sustained injuries during the Auckland Nines, Thomson provided positive news on both players when interviewed today (Tuesday).
Whilst George’s heel pulled up sore from the tournament, Thomson cited that the Englishman is expected to play a part in the Charity Shield.
“Just in that Quarter Final, Georgie jammed his heel up and just bruised the fat pad on the bottom of that heel,” said Thomson.
“That can be quite sore and swollen and obviously with the weight that Georgie carries through his body, it (crutches) are just precautionary to try and unload that and give it the best chance to settle down.
“We expect that he’ll be right for Charity Shield this weekend.”
Adam Reynolds failed to finish the golden try Final of the Nines tournament, but Thomson provided positive news on the Rabbitohs playmaker.
“Renno was a bit tight throughout the second day of that tournament,” said Thomson.
“We were a bit worried there that he might have twinged that hamstring, but it looks like it was just more of a cramp or a knock. He’s pulled up really well today and we’re expecting him to play this weekend.”
Thomson also gives updates on Aaron Gray, John Sutton and Thomas Burgess.
