icLiverpool - Injury woe continues for coach O’Callaghan

Tough times at Waterloo, they got battered last week after the heroics against Blackheath

icLiverpool - Injury woe continues for coach O’Callaghan

Last week the Merseysiders were without backs and they were forced to play a back row forward, Matt Bradley, on the wing.

Neil Kerfoot has not set foot on a field at all this season after suffering a groin injury at the end of last term. The good news is that he is in light training and is hoping to be back before Christmas.

Dan Loader, who suffered a broken arm, is expected to be out for at least four weeks but for Chris Parrott, who dislocated a shoulder playing for Sale Jets, the prognosis is at least two months after undergoing surgery.

Steven Dodd has had a scan on a spinal injury with the club waiting for the results which are expected later this week.

Scrum half Luke Stringer had an operation on a groin injury on Monday but can expect to be sidelined for at least a month.

On the positive side Pablo Freijoo has returned from duty with the Spanish international squad unscathed and will be in line for selection for the visit to Wharfedale on Saturday.

Club captain Martin O’Keefe, who was out earlier in the campaign with a leg injury which became infected, has now fully recovered after making his comeback from the bench and hooker Chris Tyms, after two dislocated shoulders both of which required surgery, has had a run-out with the seconds with no ill effects.

Waterloo have also signed former Llanelli hooker and back row forward Aled Gravell, who after a short period out of the game, has moved to live in Southport and is eager to start playing again.

It'd be nice if they could turn round their away form otherwise every home game will become a pressure match...we are off to Wharfedale at the weekend so hopefully it'll start there.

Below are the tables for Everton's UEFA opponents. Nurnberg are struggling but we all saw what an out of sorts Schalke did to Chelsea the other night. AZ seem to be having a middling time of it whilst Zenit look like being a real challenge.
