Still very doubtful but hasn't been completely ruled out of playing round 3.
Cordingley given more time
February 26, 2008
QUEENSLAND Reds half-back Sam Cordingley has made a dramatic comeback from injury to be considered a chance of playing against the Brumbies in Saturday's Super 14 clash in Canberra.
Cordingley was expected to be out for two to four weeks after suffering a groin strain in last Friday's match against the Hurricanes in Wellington.
However, Reds coach Phil Mooney today said Cordingley had responded well to treatment and would be given until Thursday before making a final decision on his availability.
If Cordingley is ruled out, Will Genia will make only his second appearance in the Reds' No.9 jersey.
"(Genia has a) very quick service, he's got a very good kicking game and I guess, if anything, he brings a game that the Brumbies wouldn't have seen as much as Sam's, so hopefully he can create a few opportunities that they (the Brumbies) might not have planned for," Mooney said.
Mooney also played down a TV report that claimed David Croft had "broken down" at training.
The Reds mentor said Croft had lost his footing on a piece of rope at training but was in no doubt for the Brumbies clash.
The Reds have not beaten the Brumbies in Canberra since they joined Super rugby in 1996.
