    I have heard a number of things about Foran's hamstrings being not too good.

    He is so crucial to our season.

    Has anyone else heard anything, especially those close to the club or who regularly go to training?

    I really hope I am being fed bad info.

    He's been struggling with his hammies for a while, it's no secret hopefully he can have an injury free season with us.

    Seems to be a concern if its affected his training.

    We bought him knowing he has dodgy hamstrings. Most games he missed from Manly were due to his hamstring problems

    It'll be a test for our medical team as well as our strength & conditioning team. I think he may sit a few games out but if he can play 20 or more then I'll be happy.

    Foran and His Hamstrings were one of the most underrated prog-rock bands of the 70s.

    Their 11 minute jazz rock odyssey "Tooves" apparently had such a profound effect on Freddie Mercury that within 4 hours of first hearing it he had drafted the bones of what later became "Bohemian Rhapsody".

    I believe, and don't quote me on this, that he has some sort of lower back issue that then somehow puts extra pressure on his hamstrings which means they will always be somewhat of an issue

    Everything is connected. I have very tight hamstrings and that has caused lower back problems. Foran's problem is similar to Michael Clark's. I used to cringe whenever I saw pup on the ground on his front and bending backwards. With that issue you want to stretch out your back and with the stretch that he was doing meant that his spine was compressing which wasn't helping his problem.

    That is not always the case, I have bad knees, tight hamstrings, but my arse is loose as.

    noted .... I will stretch my back the other way in the future


    I went to a physio about my bad back once .... he then sent me to his exercise expert lady for some classes on how to do good stretches n stuff ..... anyway - quite attractive - wearing a tight sporty outfit ..... shows me something called a cat back stretch or something - down on hands and knees arching her back back up and down, "see how I start rolling at my buttocks", "oh yes I do" ...... its very hard to then discretely do the same with wood

    Stretching the wrong muscle, Strider.

    Someone should put this quote in their signature.

    Better off trying to get an x-ray done and go to a chiro. The physio did nothing for my back.

    Strider you should have asked her to do it again just to make sure.

    Yep. Physios are mostly a crock of shit for back problems, you need a chiro or a good masseuse can be a cheaper option.
