Yeah I do but the didn't make the cut.

TPJ
Haas
Carrigan
Glenn
Boyd
Croft
Lodge

McCullough and Gillett out.
The timing for Fifita probably isn't great. He hasn't re-signed yet and then he got in trouble over in Bali. Maybe once he re-signs and the dust settles on the Bali incident he might find himself included in that list down the track.

So? We're just discussing why he wasn't at training today, because he's less than 7 months post-op on a knee reconstruction.

It's pretty reasonable that he'll be held out of trials as well, I think most clubs do that with players recovering from major surgery.
No, I was questioning his return date you posted in the context of the rumour propagated by FaithinHook FaithinHook that another club is waiting to see how he goes at training before agreeing to take him off our hands.

I can't see any reason why he wouldn't feature in the trials if he's recovered. Recovery from ACL surgery is normally 6-9 months. That's back on the paddock, not back training. He should be back at training now. Maybe not all sessions, but some.

Not a doctor.

I came back from a knee reco after 7 months! I ruptured it again in the process but 😂😂

Ah, didn't see anything about what FiH said. I also don't believe anything he says, so there's that. He probably could be training right now, but it's one of those things where it's really not worth the risk. Palasia blew out his ACL at training last week, as an example. If we only train Bird 30 days instead of 60 days during the pre-season that cuts the risk of re-injury significantly, whilst keeping him fresh for the season. As long as he gets in good game shape he can take as many days off as he wants imo.

What's the ruling on taking HTH while you're out on injury recovery? Studies show it's beneficial for ACL recovery:

Completely understand your feelings there Unbreakable. Let's face it, I have made some utterley atrocious calls over the past few years in terms of my predictions/'inside mail'. Don't blame you for being dubious on this.
