Wakefield Trinity’s Bill Tupou to make return after suffering ruptured patella tendon

Injuries are often part and parcel of being a rugby league player.

But, sometimes injuries are so bad that they can leave a star out for an extended period of time, waiting patiently for their body to heal.

One such player who has been seriously unlucky with injuries is Wakefield Trinity’s Bill Tupou.

Tupou ruptured a patella tendon in June 2021 and has been on a long road to recovery ever since. However, there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.

The centre documented his recovery, with videos of him previously running on an Alter-G treadmill, which uses a pressurised air chamber to uniformly reduce gravitational load and body weight in precise 1% increments.

And, Wakefield confirmed that the South Sea Islander would return for Trinity’s reserves against Hull FC this Friday night.

The club posted on Instagram: “𝗟𝗼𝗼𝗸 𝘄𝗵𝗼’𝘀 𝗯𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗼𝗻 𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘆 🤩

“Watch Bill return to action on Friday evening as the reserves take on Hull FC at the Be Well Support Stadium. 7.45pm KO✊

“Full squad announced tomorrow morning 🔜”
