Moore won’t rush comeback

Date published: January 30 2015

Brumbies captain Stephen Moore is in no rush to return to action and will take a cautious approach with his comeback from a serious knee injury.

Moore, who tore knee ligaments in his first Test as Wallabies captain against France last June, is set to return in the Brumbies’ Super Rugby opener against the Reds in Canberra.

The 32-year-old is expected to build up his game time from the bench and revealed that he has no fear of suffering another injury.

“I’ve not been through this, it’s new for me to be coming back from a major injury,” Moore told Rugby Heaven.

“But I feel like I’m at the stage where I’ve got to play. That’s the next step in my rehab and progression.

“There’s no right or wrong, I probably could have played this week.

“But the decision was made quite a while ago to make round one the return date so we’ll just stick with that.”
