Team taking precautions with returning Rioli: Kennedy

When will Willie Rioli be back playing with the Eagles? We may not have to wait too much longer to find out. But Josh Kennedy says the club has been very cautious with Rioli’s return

“He’s been doing a heap of work over the last couple of weeks, he’s been back in training, which has been fantastic to see,” Kennedy told 6PR Breakfast.

“I’m not too sure if it will be this week, or the following weeks. But I know that they’re going to take a pretty precautionary [stance] with him because of his foot and the way things have gone to it so they need to make sure he’s right because we need him for the back of the year; he’s going to be a really important player for us,” Kennedy says.
