Aquis Gold Coast Titans Coach Neil Henry has today spoken about the growing injury toll and how the club can get through the next period, starting with the match against the Parramatta Eels at Cbus Super Stadium on Friday night.
The main topic of conversation were the injuries suffered on Saturday and how long those players were expected to be sidelined for.
“All three will need to see a specialist,” Henry said. “Both the guys (Anthony Don and Karl Lawton) don’t require an operation but will need to be in rehab.
“Don has had it happen before so he may be a little longer but for Lawton it is a first.
“Jarryd has significant ligament damage but he doesn’t require surgery. Time wise, who knows but it may be 4-6 weeks.”
Next on the agenda was whether we can expect any players back on the field in the near future.
“I can’t say that (Will) Zillman won’t play but we’ll look for him to do some running this week. (Dan) Sarginson just wasn’t right but given the week off, he should be right.
Given his past in the English Super League and the struggle in that position, the question was asked whether Sarginson could be an option at fullback.
“We’ll need to see how he trains this week but the fullback does cover some ground and we’d probably think centre is his best go.
“I really haven’t had this before (the amount of injuries).”
One pleasing thing to come out of Saturday’s match against the Knights was the debut performance of Tyronne Roberts-Davis which Henry was impressed with.
“Tyronne had a couple of nice touches, scored a try, had some nice carries and didn’t look out of place so he’ll definitely be better for the run.”
