Member Zone Premium: In His Words: Aaron Gray
I came off the bench and ran straight on to the field and about 10 seconds in I had my first run. I fended one of the young kids from Canberra and his body landed on the outside of my leg and buckled my knee and ruptured my medial ligament.
I personally knew straight away. I’ve had a few problems with my knees so I can tell when something is wrong and I pretty much hit the nail on the head when I came off and I told them it was my medial. It’s not a good feeling that’s for sure. I felt like crying when I came off the field. My first thought was that I was pretty angry, then reality set in and I just wanted to sit down and cry but I have had a few injuries before and knew I could get over them and come back bigger, better, faster, stronger.
