Eels utility Clint Gutherson is gone for the year (and he isn’t coming back), but the Eels might get to welcome back some surprise additions in the weeks ahead.
Injured Eels duo Beau Scott and Kaysa Pritchard – both whom were ruled out for the remainder of the season – are now considered a chance to re-join the team in time for their finals campaign.
According to AAP, the pair will have visits with their surgeons during August, which will determine whether or not they’ll be able to suit up in time for the playoffs.
“I go back and see him in a month’s time, and have a look at it from there,” said Scott, who’s recovering from a ruptured bicep. “All hope’s not lost for this year, which is good.”
The Eels are in the middle of a purple patch at the moment, and with a relatively soft run in, are poised to make an unexpected run deep into September.
