Don’t rush Reo or CCV

Don’t rush CCV or Reo back, we will miss them, but having them fully fit is more beneficial.
We received the bad news yesterday that both Cameron Carter Vickers and Reo Hatate will miss the next three and six weeks respectively.

It’s not the worst prognosis, but we will still be missing them for a vital period of the campaign.

Both players have been rather unfortunate when it comes to injuries this season. They both seem to have been a little fragile to say the least.

Maybe this time the club should be more cautious when it comes to their rehabilitation? Because both players seemed to have had recurrences of their respective injuries not long after they’ve come back from their spell on the treatment table.

If that means an absence of an extra week or two then so be it. They have got to treated with extra care if we want them back up to speed and one hundred percent fit and fully focused.

That would more beneficial to the side than having players who are not fully on their game, especially at a stage of the season when we need to be fully focused.

Having Both CCV and Reo back will be a huge bonus and give everyone a massive lift, but only if they are one hundred percent fit.

Just an Ordinary Bhoy
