SUNS TV: Cordy on Swallow/O'Meara GC SUNS Elite Performance Director, Justin Cordy, speaks on the progress of injured midfield duo

Both of them are clearly doing a good job, great work ethic, great approach to their training and appetite and also bring a lot to the group collectively as well

West Australian duo David Swallow and Jaeger O’Meara are making strong progress in their recovery following serious knee injuries in 2015.

Swallow increased his running capacity following the Christmas break and is being transitioned into skills-based training, as the 2014 Club Champion edges closer towards full training.

Elite Performance Director, Justin Cordy, told SUNS TV on Friday he was pleased with how the pair were performing on the track.

“Both have been going really well,” Cordy said.

“Dave obviously joined skills yesterday for the first time and look to be honest, he was a bit rusty.

“He missed a couple of kicks, I think the boys certainly let him know about it but it’s great to have someone of his quality and experience back within the group.”

O’Meara remains on track with his rehabilitation following a freak patella tendon injury suffered in a NEAFL pre-season practice match in April.

The club won’t put timelines on O’Meara’s return to football but Cordy revealed he is on track with the high performance team’s expectations.

“Jaeger’s on a pretty specific program at the moment, he’s still on target in terms of what we’re setting with expectations and benchmarks so I’d have to say we’re happy with his progress at the moment as well,” he said.

“So both of them are clearly doing a good job, great work ethic, great approach to their training and appetite and also bring a lot to the group collectively as well.”
