New recruit Dan Sarginson has today expressed his disappointment in his return game last weekend against the Broncos and discussed how the pre-season injury put a dent in his confidence.
Sarginson arrived from the north of England late in 2016 and then told of how he was looking to hit the ground running from the return in 2017. A knee injury in late January put a stop to his pre-season and a stint in the rehab group was what stood in front of the former Wigan player. After making his debut in Round 1 of this season against the Roosters, a reoccurence of that knee injury forced him to withdraw from the Round 2 and the 23-year-old was only able to get back on to the field in Round 7.
“I was a bit rusty (last week),” Sarginson said. “I had to play, it had got to a stage where I had to test it (the knee) and we’ll just modify my training a bit moving forward.
“I was really disappointed in my performance. There were a number errors and I wanted more carries so if I get the opportunity again this week, I want to contribute more.”
After arriving in December, Sarginson has now settled into Australian life.
“The last month has been really good. At the start it was a bit frantic but I really wanted to come down here and make a mark but obviously injuries haven’t helped at all. Hopefully I can string some games together now.”
