I know why don't you go on Chris Tombs website, email him and ask? Top bloke Chris he will tell you the truth about Ben you seek
Or alternately, you could just ask Ben how the knee is holding up!
He has made an amazing come back... Written off by many. He knows howe much he needs to take care of himself and is doing just that....
Molly has the same injury. He is happy with cortisone treatment and lots of rest (plus i guess short game time) between games, the players are being well managed as far as knocks go...
Ask Lewis (he posts on Gwl@d) and is heavily involved with player management
Soldier: This is the worst part. The calm before the battle
Fry: And then the battle is not so bad?
Soldier: Oh, right. I forgot about the battle
Better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot
