The Buccaneers ship seems to be stabilising on the medical front.
OPFC.com was informed earlier this morning that things are finally looking up with regards to some of the Bucs players who have been laid off due to injuries.
The attacking midfield duo Thabo Rakhale and Thabo Qalinge are both well into recovery road. Rakhale who suffered from a Meniscal cyst, chronic hamstring and patella tendonitis was given the green light by the medical team and has now started with phase 1 of his rehabilitation. While Qalinge who underwent a plasma replacement procedure has also started with phase 1 of his rehabilitation.
Meanwhile on the defensive side of things, Thabo Matlaba who suffered a right ankle contusion with a ligamentus sprain, is still undergoing rehab and is scheduled to be re-assessed later today. While his counterpart in the defence Marc Van Heerden who was inflicted with a Grade 1 tear of quadriceps muscle resumed full training yesterday.
