Injury update: Bondi Billionaire duo to be monitored

Injured forwards Kurt Tippett (groin) and Sam Reid (groin) are set to be monitored throughout the week ahead of Saturday's Pride Game against St Kilda.

Reid played limited game time against the Giants in the Swans 13 point victory on Saturday night after tweaking his groin early in the game.

Sydney Swans Head of Football Tom Harley said a decision on whether the forward faced the Saints would be made later in the week.

“Sam did tighten up in his groin early in the game and he was limited in what he could do out on the field,” Harley said.

“We assessed him at injury clinic this morning and we will continue to monitor him throughout the week.

“We will test him a bit earlier in the week to make a definitive call about his status for this weekend.”

Given his inability to sprint, turn or jump for 95% of the match, it would be a significant recovery to be deemed 100% fit in time.

The prognosis for the injury prone big man Kurt Tippett is more positive, after he was forced from the ground in the NEAFL curtain raiser just after half time on Saturday afternoon.

“Kurt was due to play 80 minutes in the NEAFL and just after half time he presented with some groin tightness,” Harley said.

“There is nothing too serious at this stage after having our injury clinic this morning.

“We will assess him as the week goes on but we expect him to train and play.”

Given his injury record over the past two seasons, missing another return game is certainly on the cards, and begs the question whether or not he'll play for the Swans again this season.
