Contentious DA’s on the agenda at Byron Council meeting

Two contentious Development Applications (DAs) are set to come before this week’s Byron Council meeting, setting the scene for some lively debate.

Liam Harman with Gold Coast Titans under 20 squad physio Steve Watson found out that the healthier and more injury free the players are, the more time the medical staff get to kick back and watch the game.

Echonetdaily’s team of junior journalists are doing us proud at the Titans homes games at Skilled Park. This week we have a new reporter 14-year-old Liam Harman from Ocean Shores who spent the day with the Titans medical staff.

Liam Harman

Last Sunday I had the opportunity to go to the Titans v Dragons game and I spent half of the under–20s game with the medical staff for the Titans.

There are three medical staff – two physiotherapists and a doctor. All of the medical staff enjoy watching the game and the more injuries that happen during the game the less game they get to watch.

Their job is mostly to check the players’ injuries and tell the coach if they can go back on the field and show the players what stretches to do so the injury gets better.

The medical staff attend training sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The staff will check the players on the days before the game and report to the coach if they are able to play or not.

When the game is over the medical staff have to check all the players to see if they have any injuries; they then check the injury to see if it’s serious and tell the players what to do to help the injury.

Our next junior reporter will visit Skilled Park on June 2 for the Titans v Cowboys game.
