Recovery Report: Round 10 Head of Medical, Peter Blanch, provides us with the latest recovery report after round 10

Patience had become a critical part of Sam Skinner’s game.

Skinner returned to the field from a second ACL injury in the Lions’ win over Aspley in the NEAFL on Saturday.

It was Skinner’s first outing since July last year, and the 19-year-old received a warm cheer as he gathered his first touch.

The match marked almost 10 months since he tore his left anterior cruciate ligament, requiring a full knee reconstruction.

Brisbane Lions Head of Medical Peter Blanch said Skinner’s return went to plan:

“He went really well,” said Blanch.

“We had him on a bit of a limited load, he’ll be on a limited load over the next couple of weeks before he gets back into full playing.”

Vice-Captain Tom Rockliff (shoulder),  Claye Beams (hamstring), Josh Clayton (ankle) are all on track to return after the bye.
