    Round 14 injury update: Pearce, Ross, Lamb


    Newcastle Knights
    Tue 5 Jun 2018, 01:22 PM



    Physical Performance Manager, Tony Ayoub, has provided an update on the troops occupying the injured list.

    In a boost for the nib Newcastle Knights, Brock Lamb is poised to exit the casualty ward.

    The halfback has been sidelined for a number of weeks with a fractured cheekbone but is ready to return to the field and he's not alone.

    Veteran Chris Heighington is on track to face the Roosters despite picking up a concussion last week.

    Meanwhile, Mitchell Pearce has ramped up his training in a bid to return from a torn pectoral ahead of schedule.

    "He's seven weeks post-surgery and doing really well," Ayoub told newcastleknights.com.au of Pearce.

    "We've already got him in the gym. He's doing some light stuff.

    "If you don't keep your eye on him, he's doing more than he needs to do but that's a positive thing.

    "We've got him out on the field with the kickers and he's starting to pass the ball, things are certainly looking up for him.

    "We're on track for that 12 to 14-week mark but you never know with Mitch, he might surprise us and come back a little earlier."

    Injured players and expected return dates:

    Tautau Moga (ACL, Season)

    Jacob Saifiti (Shoulder, Round 24)

    Mitchell Pearce (Pectoral, Round 18-21)

    Jack Johns (Knee, Round 16-17)

    Nathan Ross (Groin, Round 15-16)

    Sam Stone (Shoulder, Round 14-15)

    Brock Lamb (Cheekbone, Round 14)

    Chris Heighington (Concussion, Round 14)

    Mitchell Pearce is back in the gym and on the field as his return looks a little ahead of schedule.

    "He's seven weeks post-surgery and doing really well," Ayoub told the Knights website.

    "We've already got him in the gym, he's doing some light stuff. We've got him out on the field with the kickers and he's starting to pass the ball. Things are certainly looking up for him.

    "We're on track for that 12 to 14-week mark but you never know with Mitch, he might surprise us and come back a little earlier."

    Brock Lamb is well ahead of schedule after a fractured cheekbone and could be fit for Roosters clash on Saturday. He was named in Nathan Brown's 21-man squad.

    Nathan Ross (groin, round 15)
    Mitchell Pearce (pectoral, round 18-21)

    Jacob Saifiti (shoulder, round 24)
    Sam Stone (shoulder, round 15)
    Brock Lamb (cheekbone, round 14-15)
    Tautau Moga (knee, season)

    Rd 15 injury update: Bitter sweet news for Buhrer, Ross delayed


    Newcastle Knights
    Wed 13 Jun 2018, 01:59 PM



    Jamie Buhrer has received some positive news with scans this week clearing him of a ruptured ACL.

    The nib Newcastle Knights co-captain limped from the field last Saturday after suffering some minor damage to the ligaments of his knee but it is not season ending.

    The 28-year-old suffered a meniscal tear which required surgery on Tuesday evening.

    Buhrer is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks.

    This means the versatile backrower could be back on the field as soon as Round 19 when the Knights host the Gold Coast at McDonald Jones Stadium.

    Meanwhile, the return of centre Nathan Ross has been delayed.

    Ross is sidelined with a groin issue which is taking longer than expected to respond to treatment.

    The 29-year-old is hopeful of being made available for selection next week.

    Finally, Daniel Saifiti is on the road to recovery from a foot injury (Lisfranc) suffered in Round 13's win over Parramatta.

    "Halfway through the first half, my foot got caught in an awkward position," Saifiti explained.

    "There was a bit of a strain through one of the ligaments. Luckily I don't need surgery.

    "Fingers crossed for a quick recovery and back in four or five weeks."

    Injured players and expected return dates:

    Tautau Moga (ACL, Season)

    Jacob Saifiti (Shoulder, Round 24)

    Jamie Buhrer (Knee, Round 19-21)

    Mitchell Pearce (Pectoral, Round 18-19)

    Daniel Saifiti (Foot, Round 18-20)

    Nathan Ross (Groin, Round 16-18)

    That is really good news for Jamie....He might be getting closer to the back end of his career but I would hate for that to have been a career ending injury at this point for him.

    So say Pearce returns round 19. And we get 1 win and the bye until then. We will be on 16 points.

    From there we play.
    Cowboys away - They have been dire this season, and with Pearce we may get the win.
    Tigers at home - If we are any chance of finals we must win this
    Warriors away - A tough task
    Panthers away - Another tough one
    Sharks away - ....
    Dragons at home - They will be looking to build for finals and will be very tough to beat

    I'd put us at 20 points at the end of the season I would guess. Maybe 22.

    That would see us finish around 12th. Which all in all would not be a bad year. Big step forward over previous years, considering Pearce out for lengthy time. If we have Pearce all year we probably scrape in to the 8.

    Look to next year for our finals appearance.
