Seems to be confirmed about Brock Gardiner unfortunately.

RABBITOHS ROCKED BY YOUNG GUN'S INJURY
Souths have been devastated by a season-ending injury to one of their best up-and-comers, Brock Gardner.
Gardner, who graduated to the Rabbitohs' top squad last year and came close to playing NRL football several times, tore his achilles at training.
Gardner is a tall, strong back-rower who is just 21 but has built up an impressive resume.
He has played NSW under-18s and is a former captain of the Knights' Harold Matthews and SG Ball teams.
But he now faces a long lay-off - and is unlikely to get back on to the field until 2022.
Beat me to it mate I was about to post this.

saw on another site where Reyno went down at training today & limped off. Surely our club needs to have Taaffe in the 30 as he is the only half in the club ready to step up in my opinion.

From Bawdy Buck off Port Rabbits forum.

Rehab report, all pretty positive there.

From what I can gather Latrell, Murray, Reyno and Tatola won’t play in the CS but that’s ok.

Rehab Report - Pre-season Week 8: https://www.rabbitohs.com.au/news/2021/01/21/rehab-report-pre-season-week-8/

All really positive stuff there, everyone seems to be on track for Round 1 thus far and is recovering well. A lot of hard work going around I hope.

No mention of Reyno's rumoured hamstring injury the other day so hopefully it's nothing. I'm also surprised by the info about Milne. There was some talk he'd miss half the Season but he'll be back in the early Rounds which is great for our depth. Everyone one else is coming along really well.

Only one I'm kind of concerned about it Burns. He had a lot of complications with his last hamstring injury which massively delayed his return and it seems like it may be the case here, with a different injury mind you. Hopefully he strikes some luck and is ready for the early Rounds.

From Fox Sports, this is a relief,

REYNO IN THE CLEAR

Supercoach Wayne Bennett has allayed concerns about Bunnies skipper Adam Reynolds missing the start of the season despite the little No.7 pulling up with a hamstring issue at training.

Rabbitohs teammates were initially having a laugh after Reynolds powered through a yawing gap only for the Bunnies playmaker to go down clutching his hamstring.

Despite the injury, the South Sydney coach is adamant there’ll be no issues for the Rabbitohs Round 1 grudge match against premiers Melbourne at AAMI Park on March 11.

In a separate incident at Bunnies training, Liam Knight came off second best with big Tom Burgess when the duo had a head clash.

Talk about a couple of large loafs of bread.

Burgess needed a couple of stitches while Knight had to remain on lighter training duties

So just an update on the lesser reported injuries to some key players so that it's in this thread and everyone is aware.

Su'A has had an injury but I have no idea what it was. he's been training with the rehab group the past few weeks. He's obviously not playing this weekend but there's conflicting reports on whether he'll be good to go Round 1. Some say he's more likely to return in Round 3 while one guy on another forum attended training yesterday and Jaydn apparently did full contact training with the group. Time will tell.

Jed Cartwright is set to be out for 4-6 weeks apparently. Had surgery on a bulging disk yesterday.

Reyno is obviously good to go as he's playing this weekend.

No idea what's going on with Knighty but he's obviously not playing in the Charity Shield.

Mate apparently Knighty had a head clash with Tom at training so just keeping him out as a precaution.
