Pilot Medical Update – May 19

Injuries to Dale Finucane and Jack Williams are set to test the Sharks depth in the forwards with the pair ruled out for extended periods following injuries which occurred in the game against the Raiders last weekend.

Finucane suffered a medial ligament strain following a collision with the Raiders defense in the Magic Round game last Sunday, while Williams dislocated a shoulder during the second half of the match.  

Surgery wasn’t required for either player, with Finucane looking at 4-6 weeks, Williams 6 weeks, on the sideline.  

Finucane was also concussed in the same tackle however medical staff are pleased with his recovery, he is experiencing no further issues or symptoms and is currently going through the concussion protocols.

In further injury updates, courtesy of Men’s on-line health provider and Sharks corporate partner Pilot, the rehabilitation of Braden Hamlin-Uele’s pectoral tear is on track, with the front rower looking to be available over the closing month of the home and away season, while young forward Franklin Pele has a fractured hand and is aiming for a round 12 or 13 return to play.

In some good news on the injury front, Wade Graham has made a successful return from the ankle problem which saw him miss the opening seven rounds of the season, playing strongly in the Sharks loss to Canberra.  

Suspended Sharks Will Kennedy and Jesse Ramien will become available for selection in rounds 12 and 14 respectively (the Sharks have the bye in round 13).
