'I want to fast forward to Sunday': Fermor raring to go for return

Beau Fermor is a like a young child on Christmas Eve this week.

Set to make his comeback from a knee injury that kept him out of the entire 2023 season, the 25-year-old is ready to unleash against the Eels, filled with exhilaration to be back on the field after an agonisingly year watching on from the sidelines. 

"It’s been a long 12 months so I want to fast forward to Sunday because I’m really excited to play and be back out there," he said.

"My knee has been 100 percent since before Christmas so I’ve had two months of full training and being in everything.

"It’s been really good."

Having ruptured his ACL in the week of Round 1 last year, the one positive in the unfortunate situation has been his ability to spend the year rehabbing and recovering, which has allowed him to take part in the entire pre-season and prepare him for 2024.

This has given Fermor plenty of confidence that he will hit the ground running come Sunday without any issues nor complaints.

"We’ve been doing pretty heavy opposed sessions so we’ve been doing game-like footy for four weeks now, so I haven’t been thinking about (re-injuring my knee) at all," he said.

"I guess a game on the weekend is a bit different, but that’s the beauty of having a trial… I can blow the cobwebs out in the trial and be ready to go for Round 1."

He has also relished the chance to spend time with his young family, which has now grown to four with the birth of young Herbie last week.

"I had a new baby only a week ago now so it's been a big 12 months, especially the last nine months with my wife Monique being pregnant," he said.

"That was one of the positives doing my knee, I got to spend a lot more time at home with my son Coopa and Monique and watch him grow over the last 12 months.

"I'm now excited to play because he was watching the game on the weekend and now understands who the Titans are and were calling out a few of the boys' names.

"I'm excited for him to see dad on TV and dad at games because he was probably a bit young when I last played to understand what was going on, so I'm excited for him to watch me play."
