27 weeks post-ACL, expected to join the group after Christmas.
Fellow forward Josh Begley has looked sharp on the track as he continues to strengthen his knee following an ACL rupture on ANZAC Day this year.
“Josh Begley is now 27 weeks after his ACL injury. He’s building up high volumes of mostly straight-line training – he’s up around the nine or 10km session mark at the moment – we do that to get some foundation in.
“We’ll start layering in some change of direction and jumping and other functional movements over the next couple of months, and he’ll be looking to integrate with the group after Christmas.”
He has come a long way body wise, no rush to move him into the midfield but wouldnt mind if he spends some time in the middle early on at VFL level to further improve that side of his game, eager to see how he goes if he gets a go in the JLT.
No more puppy fat on that frame, looks lean and strong. Hopefully his comeback is pretty much issue free and he can get some serious miles into his legs both during pre season and once the season kicks off
