COLLINGULLIE-Glenfield Park have been boosted by the news that full-forward James Morris is set to play in Sunday’s Riverina League grand final.
In his return from a hamstring injury last Sunday, Morris booted four goals in a quarter and a half before going off with the same problem.
Morris never returned to the field and it did not look good for the grand final, but the Demons spearhead has received good news.
Collingullie-Glenfield Park co-coach Brett Lenon believes Morris is now all but a certain starter against Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes atr Narrandera Sportsground.
“It isn’t as bad as first thought,” Lenon said.
“I’m pretty sure he’s going to be right.”
Lenon revealed Sunday’s injury was actually a cork.
“He copped a knock and turns out it was a cork close to where his injury was,” he said.
“It flared it up I suppose and made it feel as sore but now the swelling has gone down his hamstring feels really good.
“I’m pretty confident he’ll be right.”
Morris’ availability is massive given he’s kicked 48 goals from 16 games.
If Morris is given the green light, the Demons will go in with the same 22 that beat Wagga Tigers in the preliminary final.
Morris is expected to take it easy at Collingullie’s Wednesday night training before stepping things up for the final session on Friday night at Crossroads Oval.
