Bellamy happy with players' prognosis 1/03/2011 4:52:36 PM Head Coach Craig Bellamy is breathing a little easier today after discovering none of his injured players from Saturday nightÃ¢Â€Â™s trial match against Brisbane will be out for an extended period of time. Outside backs Beau Champion injured his calf during the warm-up and Chase Stanley suffered a corked leg before the 10-minute mark, while back-rower Sika Manu was forced off with a knee injury. With the round one fixture against Manly at AAMI Park less than a fortnight away, Bellamy said the players will need to do everything right in rehab to be a chance for the season opener. Ã¢Â€ÂœI donÃ¢Â€Â™t think thereÃ¢Â€Â™s anything there too serious, I donÃ¢Â€Â™t think weÃ¢Â€Â™re talking anything three, four or five weeks,Ã¢Â€Â said Bellamy. Ã¢Â€ÂœBut theyÃ¢Â€Â™re all going to be really touch and go for that first game. Ã¢Â€ÂœItÃ¢Â€Â™s probably likely weÃ¢Â€Â™ll go in with a couple out, but hopefully they get better a bit quicker than the medical staff think.Ã¢Â€Â The trial against Brisbane was ChampionÃ¢Â€Â™s first opportunity to get a full game under his belt for 2011, while Stanley was keen to continue his sensational pre-season form with another solid hit-out. Unfortunately for Bellamy his best laid plans for the Sea Eagles clash may need to be tweaked during next weekÃ¢Â€Â™s build-up. Ã¢Â€ÂœWe were looking forward to Beau playing last week, getting injured in the warm-up threw a spanner in the works,Ã¢Â€Â said Bellamy. Ã¢Â€ÂœHe hasnÃ¢Â€Â™t played much footy at all this year and that makes it pretty hard for him to play in that first game. Ã¢Â€ÂœChase is probably the best chance of them to be playing, but I think SikaÃ¢Â€Â™s going to struggle with that knee injury. Ã¢Â€ÂœItÃ¢Â€Â™s a body contact sport and injuries happen. We certainly didnÃ¢Â€Â™t want these injuries to happen and we didnÃ¢Â€Â™t want them to happen together but they have so weÃ¢Â€Â™ll have to adapt and IÃ¢Â€Â™m sure weÃ¢Â€Â™ll find someone to put in and take their place.Ã¢Â€Â Bellamy has ruled out rushing any of his injured players, including Billy Slater who is recovering from a pre-season shoulder operation, into the team for round one. Ã¢Â€ÂœThis time of the year weÃ¢Â€Â™re certainly not going to take any chances, itÃ¢Â€Â™s a long season,Ã¢Â€Â said Bellamy. Ã¢Â€ÂœBillyÃ¢Â€Â™s training really well at the moment so thatÃ¢Â€Â™s looking really positive, he hasnÃ¢Â€Â™t done too much contact work yet so weÃ¢Â€Â™ll look at that early next week.Ã¢Â€Â To watch the full video interview of Bellamy talking about the teamÃ¢Â€Â™s injuries and his plans for the rest of the team leading into round one, click Ã¢Â€Â˜PlayÃ¢Â€Â™ on the media player (if it hasnÃ¢Â€Â™t started playing automatically already).
