Fit­ness to cut in­jury

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

GOLD Coast coach Rod­ney Eade says new Suns fit­ness ex­pert Justin Cordy is the man to end the club’s in­jury curse.

Cordy will join the Suns as high per­for­mance man­ager when his com­mit­ments fin­ish with the Western Bull­dogs.

Cordy has also worked with Carl­ton and Cricket Aus­tralia and has es­tab­lished a rep­u­ta­tion for get­ting, and keep­ing, elite ath­letes fit.

The Gold Coast saw in Cairns last week­end how well Cordy pre­pares teams when the hardrun­ning Bull­dogs blitzed the Suns in a 10 goal to two fourth quar­ter.

Eade worked with Cordy at the Bull­dogs a decade ago and said there was no doubt he would whip the club into shape.

He said Cordy’s big­gest as­set was hard­en­ing play­ers for the rigours of top- level football and keep­ing in­jury rates to a min­i­mum.
