Premier Rugby: McNamara winning fitness battle and showing Sunnybank the way


One to watch, Sunnybank’s Liam McNamara is back from injury and ready to take on GPS this weekend. The former Australian Sevens and Under 20s player injured his knee in his first NRC game for Brisbane City in September last year, after finishing a stint in the Reds squad.

Missing the first trial games of 2020 following surgery and rehabilitation on his ACL joint, McNamara used the Covid delays to get his knee strong for the shortened season. He’s been happy with his progress, and grateful to the club where he started as a junior.

“Sunnybank have been good and eased me back into it with playing minutes,” McNamara said.

“I’ve been able to get through 80 minutes and it’s been feeling pretty good so just getting that confidence back has been a big thing. I feel like I’m getting that confidence and feeling confident to play.”
