Collingwood general manager Geoff Walsh has backed in Jamie Elliott and Darcy Moore to return to full fitness following their return from Germany.
The Magpies duo have been suffering from ongoing soft tissue injurie and visited Bayern Munich club doctor Dr Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt to find a resolution to their problems.
“They’re certainly both joining in in full training since they’ve been back,” Walsh told SEN’s The Sporting Capital.
“That’s great because it’s well documented that they haven’t joined in in full training for any length of time in quite a while”.
“Time will tell whether that’s been successful or not, but certainly all the indications are that our doctor has been really pleased with what he learned”.
“I know both the boys came back and were really pleased and they think in terms of their preparation they learned some little thing that will be helpful to them.”
Walsh said that Elliott has the attributes to become one of the premiership small forwards in the competition and has high hopes for him in the upcoming 2019 season.
“He’s potentially and A-grader,” Walsh added.
“His form when he’s been fit in previous years says that he’s a really dangerous small forward who is more than capable overhead.”
Elliott didn’t play a single game in 2018 and 2016, while Moore only played 7 games in the past season.
