    There are examples of players in this sport and other sports who either couldn't return from multiple severe knee injuries or were nowhere near what they once were or promised to be, which I thought was obvious.

    Danny Sullivan is a prime example.

    Paul Mares never got his knees right either.

    Exactly. I mean Danny Sullivan was just on the wrong side of 20. If he had been born a couple of months later, he'd still be playing. And well Simon Dwyer is ancient at 22, no way he's coming back from injury

    Mares at least continued his career. Fair point about Sullivan, but his case was an injury, followed by golden staph, followed by another injury two years later. In the end it looks like he just gave up.

    Loko had one knee injury and looks like he just came back too soon.

    I suspect he might never play centre again but if he works hard and actually lets the knee heal there's no reason he can't go on to play forever at wing or edge forward.

    funnily enough, Mares's dodgy knee didn;t end up finishing his career iut was a neck injury in 98, had the doctor not pulled the plug on his playing career he would of ended his career at Parra from the roosters.

    Just on Loko, it was suggested to me by a member of parra's coaching staff that he will comeback as a 13 and not a back..

    You sure you heard right. Maybe they said he will be back in round 13.

    Simon Dwyer had an appalling injury though- those are career enders at any age

    It's only a ACL. He will be fine to go for the trial games.

    Ken Sio has a strained hamstring, which would explain him not training much on Tuesday.

    I was mucking around. I don't know anything.
    All I know is Jodeci said he is gone for the season. I never have any reason to doubt his info.

    Ryan Morgan has a hammy strain.

    - Matt Ryan is on a restricted training program this week due to a sore knee.

    - Rory Brien is recovering well from off-season shoulder surgery and is expected to be match-ready by July.

    - Jarryd Hayne has overcome his groin injury from 2011 and is training well with the side.

    - Reni Maitua is recovering from his off-season ankle injury and is expected to be fit for Round 1.

    - Jacob Loko is now 4 weeks post-op from his knee reconstruction, with Eels medical staff happy with his progress.

    Rory wasnt going to make first grade this year but i guess it will hamper his progress and maybe put him back a year.( i not sure he'll cut the mustard anyhows he looks to small to me)
