Josh Ward“Josh fully trained today with the main group, and will do main training again on Thursday.””If that all goes well and to plan, he’ll be available for selection on the weekend.”

Chad Wingard “He’s recovered really well,” “He’s freshened up a little bit, and will fully train on Thursday. All being good on that session, he’ll be available for selection.”

Changkuoth Jiath “We are in that situation now where it hasn’t progressed as quickly, he’s certainly made some progression and is running outside,” “I think at this stage, it’s 50-50 for next week. I would say Round 14, which is actually a bye, would be more realistic.”

Adam Treloar (hamstring)

“Adam’s recovery from his hamstring injury has gone exactly to plan,” Head of Sports Medicine, Chris Bell said.

“We have graduated his speed and training demands over the last few sessions, with him completing a game like training session on Saturday.

“He still has one or two boxes to tick before we can confirm his availability, but at this stage he is on track to return to play this weekend.”

Sam Darcy has progressed well over the last couple of weeks,” Bell said.

“During his last review, the specialist was happy that Sam’s lung had fully healed.”

“Since then, Sam has been progressing his training and completed a game like rehab session on Saturday.

“If he gets through main training this week like I expect, he will return to availability.”

Roarke Smith has been suffering from this persistent plantar fascia issue since the start of the season,” Bell said.

“We know that these injuries are notoriously hard to fix within a season, and he has shown great mental resilience and determination to get back to playing.

“Roarke’s foot has coped well with the progression back into training the last few weeks.

“If he pulls up well from our main session on Wednesday, Roarke will return to playing this weekend.”

  1. Mills is disappointing. Last week he was 1-3 weeks. Now 2-4 weeks. Was really hoping he was back round 13 and be cherry ripe as a selection in round 15.


  2. WCE: Jamaine Jones out for about two months following ankle surgery on Monday.

    “Jamaine had surgery on his ankle yesterday to stabilise the syndesmosis and he’ll have a quiet first couple of weeks and then get into his active recovery,”


  3. “The bye has come at the right time for Darcy as he was subbed from the game in the second quarter with a hamstring injury. The early report is it could be 3-4 weeks but just check before you trade”.

    From the SC app


  4. MCL ligament sprain confirmed for Steele Sidebottom. Expected to miss at least a month. Return date to become clearer in 7-10 days.
