SUNS defender Rory Thompson has undergone surgery on his injured ACL and will begin his rehab in the coming days.
Gold Coast’s Head Physiotherapist Lindsay Bull told the Qscan Injury Update that it was deemed a knee reconstruction would be the best course of action for the 29-year-old.
“Rory had exploratory surgery on Monday for the surgeon to determine whether the partial ACL tear and the fibres that were left were strong enough to withstand the forces they need to withstand moving forward,” Bull said.
“Unfortunately that wasn’t the case so Rory’s had a reconstruction on his knee and he’ll be in at the club in the next few days to commence his rehab.”
In positive news, midfielder Josh Schoenfeld is expected to return in this weekend’s scratch match after overcoming a foot injury which has held him out for the past fortnight.
“Josh has done really well with his rehab,” Bull said.
“He’s missed the last couple of weeks and attacked his rehab really thoroughly so he’ll be available to play in the scratch match on Sunday.”
