Geelong coach Chris Scott hits back at sports medico Dr Peter Larkins for unprofessional commentary

Sep 8, 2021

Eliza ReillyPerthNow Geelong senior coach Chris Scott has been forced to defend the Cats handling of Tom Stewart’s foot injury, denouncing comments made by sports medico Dr. Peter Larkins as “highly unprofessional,” accusing the sports medico of “throwing haymakers from the cheap seats.” Stewart underwent surgery on his lisfranc ligament after injuring himself at training before round 22 but surprisingly has his sights set on a grand final return if Geelong can get past Melbourne on Friday night at Optus Stadium. Deemed “ahead of schedule” by Scott after defeating Greater Western Sydney last week, Larkins tweeted Geelong were “delusional” for thinking Stewart could make a shock return this season. “There’s nobody that’s played within a six-eight week period (after surgery), and he’s going to be 33 days after his surgery that he’d have to be named by Geelong without playing a game,” Larkins told SEN. “As romantic as that sounds I don’t think it’s realistic.” Larkins added the risk of Stewart returning ahead of time and re-injuring his footy was “extraordinarily high.” But Scott, who has already been forced to defend his medical staff this season when star forward Jeremy Cameron re-injured his hamstring despite a pre-game fitness test in round 16, hit back hard at suggestions the Cats were rushing Stewart back.

There’s not going to be much room for grey there. It’s going to be a really binary decision.” Brandan Parfitt is the Cats only confirmed out at this stage after suffering a serious hamstring injury against GWS.

It won’t be the primary reason we play well or not. “As well as that and more, the games between the two teams have tended to be pretty tight. You can look back and say they’re just random encounters over a long period of time and they’re not relevant to now but it may well indicate the teams will match up pretty well.” Share to Facebook
