Head of Medical Services Brian O’Leary gives us an injury update going into the Greene King IPA Championship Play-offs.
The London Irish squad are in good shape going into the play-offs with no medium to short-term injuries.
The following players are in the treatment room with long-term injuries:-
Tom Smallbone (shoulder)
Richard Palframan (Knee)
Joe Trayfoot (Knee)
Johnny Williams (Hamstring)
Tom Fowlie (Hamstring)
O’Leary said: “The medical team have worked extremely hard with the strength and conditioning team and the rugby department throughout the season. As a result we have the highest player availability of the season going into the most crucial period of the campaign, which is what we set out to achieve last summer. The lads are in great shape thanks to a great team effort from all departments.”
