Force injury update
Homegrown star Kyle Godwin is nearing his long-awaited return to the field, while a number of players continue to work back to full fitness.
Kyle Godwin (foot)
Having missed the opening five Force matches of the Super Rugby AU campaign with a foot injury, Godwin is back running. The capped Wallabies centre is set to join the team training sessions across the Easter long weekend.
Richard Kahui (concussion)
Having left the field against the Queensland Reds at Suncorp Stadium in Round 5 after sustaining a concussion, the World Cup-winning All Black has continued to follow the Return to Play protocol and if no signs or symptoms of concussion are shown could be considered for selection for the Round 8 clash against the Melbourne Rebels at AAMI Park.
Rob Kearney (adductor)
The superstar Irish fullback, who missed last week’s match in the capital against the ACT Brumbies with an adductor injury, is continuing his rehab program and will be looking to rejoin team training sessions after the bye week.
Greg Holmes (ribs)
The former Wallabies prop, who earned his 150th Super Rugby cap in front of friends and family against his former side the Reds a fortnight ago, exited the field early against the Brumbies with a rib injury. Holmes’ injury will be monitored and will likely rejoin team training after the bye week.
Toni Pulu (hamstring)
The speedster is continuing to recover from a hamstring injury sustained against the Rebels at HBF Park and will be pushing for selection after the Round 8 match against the Rebels.
Jake McIntyre (hamstring)
The playmaker is continuing to recover well from a hamstring injury suffered last week against the Brumbies and will continue to be monitored by the club’s physio and medical team.
