Rabbitohs Head Coach, Michael Maguire, says that skipper Greg Inglis is recovering from his minor knee surgery, with positive signs for a swift return.
Inglis will miss this Thursday’s clash with the Brisbane Broncos following yesterday’s knee surgery - a necessary occurrence to have a fragment of cartilage arthroscopically removed from the fullback’s knee. Find out more about Inglis’ injury in our ALCATEL onetouch High Performance Update.
“He had the operation yesterday and we’re looking forward to him recovering,” said Maguire.
“Timing will obviously depend on how it mends up but we’ve been assured that it will only be a short one – one week, two weeks.
“It’s quite positive around the operation. It was fairly straight-forward – they just removed a little bit of cartilage and the doctors were really positive.”
But while Inglis will miss this Thursday’s clash, the Rabbitohs will be bolstered by the return of Issac Luke and Luke Keary, who both spent Round 24 on the sidelines owing to suspension.
Maguire emphasised though that the return of both players will have to be accompanied by a return to focussing on playing to the sides potential.
“I think we had direction last weekend, we just didn’t play the way we can,” said Maguire.
“If we perform the way we know we can, whether it’s Cam McInnes, Issac Luke or Luke Keary, they play off the back of our forward pack.
“To have those two back is great because they’re two very good players inside our team.”
