Sydney Roosters Set Date For Boyd Cordner's NRL Return Following Concussion Battle

Boyd Cordner is poised for a return to rugby league following his ongoing concussion battle.

The Sydney Roosters captain suffered a potentially-career-ending head knock while playing for New South Wales in last year's State of Origin series.

At the time of the devastating injury, many believed Cordner would never step foot on a footy field again due to his lengthy history of concussions.

But it seems the 28-year-old has defied the odds and is now set for a long-awaited comeback, with the Roosters reportedly penciling in their Round 14 clash against the Gold Coast Titans as his return date.

"It's exciting now I've got a timeline and something to aim for," Cordner told The Daily Telegraph.

"I've got to get myself through a big block of contact then I'll be sweet to go.

"I'm obviously really looking forward to it."

For Trent Robinson's Roosters, Cordner's arrival is a massive coup for a team who has been struck down by a number of big-name injuries.

And according to The Daily Telegraph's Michael Carayannis, the Roosters have done everything they can to ensure Cordner's return is a safe one.

"Great news, they've pencilled in Round 14 for his comeback," Carayannis told SEN 1170 Breakfast radio.

"It'll be against the Titans on June 12, which will be eight months after Origin.

"That's a fairly long stint on the sidelines with all of the concussion hurdles, but the Roosters have taken all the precautions with his health and where their season is at.

"Who knows how many players will be sidelined for the Roosters by the time Boyd makes his comeback?"
