PJ Marsh Ready To Resume Training

Warriors hooker PJ Marsh has finally had the brace removed from his neck after wearing it for more than four months.

Marsh suffered the season (and possibly career) ending neck injury midway through last season.

The Warriors have resumed training ahead of the 2004 season, although PJ is still taking it easy on the sidelines.

He says it is a great feeling now that he can actually see his neck again and get some sun on it as well.

Marsh will have his neck assessed by a specialist today, with more x-rays being taken, and if the all-clear is given he will be back to full training with the Warriors.

Stacey Jones' ankle surgery has been a success.

Jones had the operation immediately after the end of the NRL season.

He is back in pre-season training this week, and says that although he can only train lightly at present, he should be 100% within a fortnight.

Jones says they cleaned up his ankle by removing a piece of a bone so he will be raring to go after some rehabilitation and physio.

He says the squad has already embarked on an ambitious new conditioning programme which will see the players stronger , faster and slimmer.

Stacey Jones says that at the moment though, they are winding into things lightly, trying to stop jarring their legs by hitting the bike and the pool.
