    Injury update: Dislocated elbow sidelines Fitzgibbon


    Newcastle Knights
    Mon 8 Jul 2019, 01:52 PM



    Lachlan Fitzgibbon has been dealt some cruel news with scans on his elbow revealing he will miss at least the next month of football.

    The backrower suffered a dislocated elbow in the early exchanges of last Saturday’s narrow loss to the Warriors, yet braved the pain to finish the match.

    Head of Physical Performance Balin Cupples revealed on Monday that Fitzgibbon has suffered ligament damage which will keep him off the field for around five weeks.

    "Everyone saw Lachy got caught awkwardly diving on a loose ball early in the game on Saturday night,” Cupples said.

    “Unfortunately, he dislocated his elbow. And surrounding that, post follow ups with scans and specialists over the last few days, no fracture but he has done a little bit of damage to his surrounding ligaments.

    “At this stage he’ll be in a brace for 3-4 weeks and then a potential return to play at 4-5 weeks off the back of that.

    “He did extremely well to get through the game off the back of the injury. A moderate recovery for him, which isn’t great but we'll make sure Lachy does the work.”

    Meanwhile, Edrick Lee has successfully had his broken arm operated on.

    The winger suffered the injury in Round 15 and is expected to be available for selection in time for the finals.

    “Eddie had a successful surgery,” he said.

    “He’s been back in treatment wise and he’s been spending plenty of time with the physios.

    “Eddie will follow up with a specialist early next week to build back into his weighted rehab type gym stuff.”

    Injured players and expected return dates:

    Lachlan Fitzgibbon (Elbow – Round 21-22)

    Kalyn Ponga (Calf - Round 18)

    Edrick Lee (Arm - Round 25-Finals)

    Slade Griffin (ACL - Late season)

    Starford To’a (Ankle – Round 21-24)

    It was a brave effort by Fitz to finish the game on Saturday. I could see he was struggling when he was interviewed at half time, he was hanging onto his uniform with his hand to support his arm.

    Seems unfair, Maloney gets suspended for a trip, I don’t like trippers, with no apparent injury to anyone and Burgess gets a fine for high shot, careless or whatever, that knocks a player out and leaves them 1 short and also missing next game. Burgess also has a poor judiciary record. Don’t think the penalties fit the crime.

    Injury Update: Origin prop sidelined and ACL for backrower


    Newcastle Knights
    Mon 12 Aug 2019, 02:16 PM



    Tim Glasby is set to spend at least a week on the sidelines, with NRL concussion protocol entering Glasby into a stand down period.

    According to nib Newcastle Knights Head of Physical Performance, Balin Cupples, the head knock he sustained against Parramatta was not serious but he will miss Saturday’s game with North Queensland.

    “In terms of the actual head knock over the weekend, it was not of a serious nature, but due to the amount of head knocks Tim’s had over the past few weeks, he’s had two in three games now, as per NRL protocol, he’ll have a stand down period for this week’s game against the Cows,” Cupples said.

    “He’ll follow up with a concussion specialist in terms of protocol this week.”

    Meanwhile, in some good news for the team, James Gavet is expected to return from a hamstring complaint this week.

    “Jimmy had some hamstring tightness all through last week and got through training fine,” Cupples explained.

    “We just thought with the importance of the game we just wanted to have no concerns going into it, hence we gave Jimmy a few extra days to get it right.

    “He came through training over the weekend really strongly and he’ll build back into preparation this week.”

    The news isn’t so good for the Canterbury Cup side, with powerful backrower Beau Fermor ruled out for the season with a knee injury.

    “Unfortunately for Beau, it’s probably the worst-case scenario, he’s ruptured his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament),” Cupples said.

    “It’s going to be a tough road but we’ll make sure Beau’s got the best care and all the detail around him to get through it and come back stronger come next year.”

    In further bad news for the Canterbury Cup and NRL sides, young gun Phoenix Crossland will miss the remainder of the season with a foot injury.

    “Phoenix’s got an interesting one, he’s been diagnosed with an acute stress response of his talus bone in his foot,” Cupples explained.

    “He’ll miss the last four games of Cup for the year, he’s in a boot at the moment and we’ll make sure he builds into next pre-season.”

    Injured players and expected return dates:

    Edrick Lee (Arm - Round 25-Finals)

    James Gavet (Hamstring - Round 22)

    Tim Glasby (Head - Round 23)

    Slade Griffin (ACL - Late season)

    Starford To’a (Ankle – Round 23-24)

    Beau Fermor (Knee - Season)

    Phoenix Crossland (Foot - Season)

    Very sad for Beau as an NRL debut was likely. Hopefully he uses this as motivation during rehab.

    Injury update: Watson blow, Griffin's shattering news


    Newcastle Knights
    Mon 19 Aug 2019, 02:02 PM



    The nib Newcastle Knights will be without utility Connor Watson for their upcoming encounter with the Wests Tigers with the 23-year-old picking up a minor MCL strain.

    According to Knights Head of Physical Performance, Balin Cupples, the injury Watson sustained was relatively minor, however confirmed the star would require a week on the sidelines.

    “Connor’s got a minor grade MCL strain, so he’ll be unavailable this weekend,” Cupples said.

    “He was in a boot for the first couple of days this week, he’ll build into AlterG and his straight line before going into change of direction.

    “In the grand scheme of things, it’s a pretty minor injury and we should see him return next week against the Titans.”

    The news wasn’t so good for fellow hooker Slade Griffin, who won’t be returning this season.

    Griffin suffered his fourth serious knee injury in a match against Canterbury-Bankstown last year and was initially seeking a return later this year.

    That’s no longer the case with Cupples confirming the unfortunate news.

    “Slade a few weeks ago had a final assessment externally regarding his knee movements, deceleration, change of direction, and strength both anteriorly and posteriorly,” he said.

    “The results we got back, there was still some slight deficits there and that was off the back of a previous six-week block where we tried to target everything we could to get him back onto the field.

    “Unfortunately, the risk is just too great for the merit of those two games.”

    Cupples was also able to provide an update on Canterbury Cup second rower Beau Fermor, who suffered an ACL injury last week.

    “Beau got straight in for surgery Thursday last week, it was actually the day before his birthday the big fella, so he’s been in the last couple of days and is in really good spirits,” Cupples said.

    “He’s got a tough journey ahead of him, but he’s got a lot of support around him and we’ll make sure Beau returns in the next year ready to go.”

    Injured players and expected return dates:

    Edrick Lee (Arm - Round 25-Finals)

    Tim Glasby (Head - Round 23)

    Connor Watson (Round 24)

    Slade Griffin (ACL - Season)

    Beau Fermor (Knee - Season)

    Phoenix Crossland (Foot - Season)

    Recovery Report: Full squad health update ahead of 2020


    Newcastle Knights
    Tue 12 Nov 2019, 10:13 AM



    The nib Newcastle Knights have returned to pre-season duties, with virtually all hands on-deck ahead of a gruelling few months of intense training.

    The entire squad has been checked over by the Club’s medical and coaching staff, with Head of Physical Performance, Balin Cupples, highly impressed with the fitness of the squad.

    “It’s an exciting time of the year, and the boys have obviously done work to their credit,” Cupples said.

    “Lots of players turned up for sessions before the pre-season start.

    “Some of their initial testing has showed that, but in saying that they’ve been tested plenty of times already, and we’re just getting started.”

    BEAU FERMOR

    The up-and-coming second rower missed the final few games of last season after suffering a devastating ACL injury.

    However, the determined young forward has impressed medical staff with his desire and determination to return to action as soon as possible.

    “Beauy’s worked really hard over the break, and only spent minimal time back up in Queensland,” Cupples said.

    “He’s worked really hard on his quad baulk, and he’s got really good symmetry there between his legs.

    “He’s able now to work into that next strength phase, and we’re able to get him onto the field and build some straight line running which is great for Beau.”

    MASON LINO

    Similar to Fermor, Lino suffered his injury late in the season, going down with a shoulder injury in the final round loss to Penrith.

    Racing the clock to be fit for round one, Lino now has his arm out of a sling and is building towards a return sooner rather than later.

    “He again has spent plenty of time in Newcastle over the break and plenty of time with the rehab and physio staff,” Cupples said.

    “In line with that, he’s come through his protective phase and goes into that initial strength phase.

    “He’s also getting out onto the field to build some straight line running.

    “Both Beau and Mace are around team training sessions and there’s eyes on with skills and with the new coaching crew, there’s plenty of listening for them to pick up.”

    Injured players and expected return dates:

    Mason Lino (Shoulder - Early year)

    Beau Fermor (Knee - Early-Mid season)
