I think he was out on the track for photos but unreal, none the less. stoked to see him at the club.
Yeah "just" out there for photos.

But the bloke shouldn't even be walking let alone doing so without an aid at this point. It's incredible.

All miracles aside, I've got a lump in my throat just seeing him smiling again. Go you beautiful Maj!

Keep a flag in your dreams this year, because you've shown us that you can do anything. And most of all, welcome back.

Unbelievable, like, just, wow.

I was told he'd never play again.

So amazing.
Yep. A mate of mine has read the doctors report. They thought he’d be lucky to walk properly again, let alone play. Seriously amazing to be at this stage so early.

That smile!

So stoked to see him in north colours. It’s astonishing to even walking around to be honest, what a ******* legend!
When I saw that photo of all the boys with Maj in a huddle after the photo - I teared up!

If the surgery was great and you are all over your rehab you'd be surprised at how quick you can recover. It can happen rapidly but then it begins to taper off. The positive for Maj is he is in ripping condition and has had a few injury setbacks so he knows 100% what is needed and how to be a professional.

Even after knee reconstructions these days you can be on your feet moving around unassisted in no time at all. It's the load bearing stuff that will take Maj some time. He'll be using the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill soonish I'd say.

Hats off to Maj and those in charge of his recovery. Great seeing him there around teammates and smiling.
