GREEN ON TRACK FOR 2018 RE­TURN

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

LUNGE by lunge, net­ball vet­eran Kim Green is closer to the come­back she was plan­ning the mo­ment the pain cleared af­ter rup­tur­ing her ACL.

It will come around three months af­ter she fell to the ground in agony — and just a third of the way through the nine months doc­tors orig­i­nally said it would take her to fully re­cover from the knee in­jury.

“We are tak­ing it one day at a time. I still need to get my ham­string strength back,” said the ex-Di­a­monds and Giants cap­tain. “But I hope to be run­ning in the next few weeks.

“I have 10 months to get back on court. I’m not stressed.” Green said she never doubted she would be back in 2018.

“I couldn’t go out this way, no way,” Green said. “I want to go out fight­ing. That’s the plan. To be back on court next year like it never hap­pened.’’

Green’s team­mates head to Can­berra to take on the Vix­ens to­day in what many be­lieve could be a pre­view of this year’s Su­per Net­ball de­cider. The Giants will be out to avenge their round-six loss to the Vix­ens.
