All the Latest News & Fixtures...
From the Physio Room
Welcome to this latest update from the Physio Department.
First on the list is once again Kyle Moyle who is now starting to integrate back into training. He has been involved with some of the sessions recently and is beginning his return to contact work. Looking really good, Kyle has thrown himself into it with fantastic assurance and is still well on track for a return at the end of the year.
Nicolas De Battista unfortunately damaged a ligament in his wrist when we played Doncaster Knights away. He has since had an operation to repair it, but we will not know much more until he has a surgical review at six weeks.
The next player up is John Stevens who managed to sustain a fracture in the game against the Falcons, which has since been fixed. Expected to be out just for a very limited period, John will be able to train and get even fitter during his short time away from the field of play and we can expect to see him in his inimitable fashion sometime in December.
Marlen Walker was also injured against the Falcons, sustaining a knee ligament injury. Currently, we expect him to be back in December.
At Nottingham on Friday, Matt Bolwell unluckily picked up a shoulder injury. He will be assessed by a specialist and have a scan to determine the management of the injury.
Antonio Kiri Kiri has, since the last update, made decent progress and is enjoying himself rolling around on the wet training pitches. He has been training well and is looking every bit the typical Kiwi back row forward.
Finally, there is Cian Romaine who continues to be pushed hard to get him back on the field of play. Cian is starting to show signs of what he will be able to do.
Notably, since the last update Harry Davey has played a full 80 minutes for Redruth, plus Dan Frost has moved out of the Physio Room and has appeared as a replacement in our last two matches.
