Injury Report: Round 7

Melbourne Storm’s General Manager – Football, Frank Ponissi, has given an update on the Club’s injured players ahead of Round 7. 

Round 6 saw two new additions to the injury list in Tui Kamikamica and Tepai Moeroa

Kamikamica, unfortunately, went down with a calf injury in the opening minutes of Storm’s clash against the Bulldogs at AAMI Park. The Fijian international is expected to miss three games, hopefully to return in Round 10. 

Following a man-of-the-match performance with feeder club the North Sydney Bears in Round 5, Moeroa returned to Melbourne with a back injury. Resting this week to avoid further aggravation, the forward will be reviewed again next week and may once again be back for selection. 

Victorian young gun Sua Fa’alogo wil return to full training this week, after a shoulder injury earlier this year kept him sidelined from running out with the NRL squad this season so far. 

“He'll make his return to play next weekend, not this weekend coming, but the following weekend, which is going to be a real good boost.” said Ponissi. 

Up-and-comer, Ammaron ‘AJ’ Gudgeon will almost make his long-awaited return to the field through the NSW Ron Massey Cup this weekend following a string of shoulder injuries that him out of contention. 

“He's had a lot of rotten luck. Last year, after his first season and undergoing a shoulder reconstruction, he came back...then you wouldn't believe, he did his other shoulder,” Ponissi shared.  

“That was April last year, so he hasn't played for a full 12 months and he returns this weekend, back playing, which is fantastic.  

“All the boys are really pleased for him and proud of him. We gave him a little ceremony the other day at one of the team meetings and watched a little video and went through his journey the last 12 months.  

“Really happy for AJ for this weekend.”
