King Gutho back this weekend

Just now Michael Chammas from has revealed that Clint Gutherson will be named at fullback for this weekend's clash on Saturday.

After suffering an ACL injury in July 2017, Gutherson has been sorely missed from the Eels squad.

Brad Arthur has also quashed speculation that Mitchell Moses and Corey Norman don't get on with Arthur saying they often spend plenty of time together off the field.

It's also believed Bevan French and Kane Evans will also be available this week.

  • Make him captain as well.

  • Fkn oath we need him big time, just hope we’re not rushing him back too early.

    A welcome addition but I think we’ll need more than the king to save us!

  • Good news hope French comes back aswell
  • Youd want him to come off the bench surely.
    I wouldn't put him at fullback for 80 after such a long lay off
    • French will probably fall back to fullback some time in the second half probably
    • Exactly - and I read recently that when warming up with the group before the tigers' game, his lateral movement was not that great and that was quite noticeable. I hope that's not true.

      • That's what I saw. He jumped sideways instead of stepping, and it was quite obvious. Not sure if that was just preventative, but I'd like to think he has that lateral movement back now.

    • Chief, in all fairness Gutho was ready to return in round 3 but BA wanted him to stay out for a hit longer. Has been doing full contact since the Maitland trial. 

  • Lets allow a little reality here.  Just maybe, Guth won't launch immediately into Dally M winning form in his first game. 

    Like when he first started here at Parra, his progress from significant injury was cautious, as it ought to be.  I wouldn't be expecting miracles, but it will be great to see him back.

    • Well he’d better,otherwise all the experts will have him in Wenty the following week.
