Injury Update: JLT 2 SUNS TV caught up with GM - Football Operation Jon Haines to address this week's injuries.
The advice from the surgeons and our medical staff is a fairly conservative approach, so we expect the recovery period will take 4-6 weeks and at that time Pearce will be ready to play.

Irishman Pearce Hanley is expected to miss four to six weeks of football after dislocating his shoulder in Gold Coast’s JLT2 match at Southport Sharks on Sunday.

General Manager – Football Operations, Jon Haines, told the goldcoastfc.com.au Injury Update Hanley underwent scans on his right shoulder late on Monday and would not require surgery. 

“It was an unfortunate incident for Pearce on the weekend, he’s had a dislocation of his right shoulder,” Haines said.

“The advice from the surgeons and our medical staff is a fairly conservative approach, so we expect the recovery period will take 4-6 weeks and at that time Pearce will be ready to play.”

Jack Martin was also sidelined during the JLT2 match, however, Haines confirmed there was no cause for concern.

“Jack was feeling a bit tight in his hamstring,” Haines explained.

“We were planning for Jack to have some reduced minutes anyway.

“He’s had a power of work through the pre-season, so he’s really well placed.

“That was just a precautionary measure – he feels fine and will be fit and available for Round 1.”

In other positive news Peter Wright’s recovery is progressing well, with the tall-forward expected to be available for senior selection early in the 2018 season. 

“Pete’s tracking really well, he’s still working through his recovery with the calf strain that he’s experienced,” Haines said. 

“He’s attacking his rehab as we thought he would, and we’ll assess him over the next week or so.”
