Westfund Rehab Report: Round 19

Westfund Rehab Report: Round 19 In this week's Westfund Rehab Report we find out about the status of players including Aiden Corr, Ryan Griffen and Sam Taylor. Plus how great it is to see Matt Buntine and Adam Kennedy back to playing together after ACL injuries.

Defenders Aidan Corr and Sam Taylor, and veteran Ryan Griffen face fitness tests this week in a bid to face St Kilda at Spotless Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Corr (groin), Taylor (corked leg) and Griffen (hamstring) missed Sunday’s win over the Power and will need to get through Wednesday’s main training to return to the side this week.

“They’re all improving and we want to see how they go in training this week and whether they can put their hand up for selection against St Kilda,” said GIANTS Head of Athletic Performance David Joyce.

Forward Matt de Boer (ankle) and midfielder Harry Perryman (hamstring) are also tracking well for a return to the field shortly.

“I would expect them in all or part of training tomorrow and hopefully they pull up well and then we can see where they fit in at selection for the next week or two,” Joyce said.

“I’m really pleased with how both of them are going, both outside with the footy and running and inside the gym as well so they’re tracking along nicely."

The GIANTS take on St Kilda at Spotless Stadium at 4:35pm on Saturday.
