    Speaking of Loko, the 'other site' is reporting he has re-injured his knee. Anyone have any news?

    He could be gone for the season, and Rni apparently has injured his ankle as well.
    The Rumoured Signings thread has more details.

    Someone on the other site says they saw Jacob Loko and Willie Tonga in the car-park yesterday, and Loko said he should be back by round 4 and Willie is merely on leave from the Four Nations.

    I have a feeling that Jacob was being a little too optomistic...

    Maybe his scans came in better than first feared ? One thing is for sure, he will heal much faster than Poore or other vintage types.

    I was updated twice by people within the club that he is now going to have to prepare for 2013.

    He might as well ride bikes with Hoppa. Good rehab.

    Sounds like Loko was being extremely optimistic.

    You can't blame him for being optimistic.
    Oh well, we will just have to hope he can recover from the injuries.

    There's being optimistic and there's being delusional. No way will he back in April if he's torn his ACL yet again. He'll have to face the full length recovery this time it'd be too risky otherwise.

    I meant I hope he can actually continue his career at some point.

    Dude he's not even 20 years old. Of course he'll come back from this injury.

    Hopefully another red herring from the masters of subterfuge.
