“Countless hours spent on biceps rehabilitation at Ballymore has been a positive experience for Samu Kerevi.”
Kerevi says he is similarly hungry to return to the Test rugby arena and is confident of playing a role in Yokohama this weekend.
“For me it’s about playing that Byron Bay Sevens. That was my confidence. It wasn’t just about the match fitness but seeing about how the injury would feel under pressure. When I tore my bicep at the time and I hadn’t played any footy and I’d just had training and that and there wasn’t any contact that confidence to back myself and make that big hit if I had to or if I wanted to, that was more for myself.”
The 26-year-old missed the last six games with a bicep injury sustained in June.
