Korbin Set For Big Start To 2018

KORBIN Sims says he is turning the devastating arm fracture that ruined his NRL finals and World Cup dreams into a positive.

Sims injured his arm in heavy contact against Parramatta late in August, what was at first thought to be a bad bruise found to be a break after scans.

He had originally hoped that his arm would be right for a last-ditch attempt at being fit for the NRL Grand Final, if the Broncos had qualified.

They did not, and Sims was looking forward to playing for Fiji in the Rugby League World Cup, where the Bati had that amazing run to the semi-final.

But once again Sims was denied, the fracture deemed not to have healed well enough for the rigours of a World Cup.

Sims only returned to full training this week, and said the injury lay-off had given him the drive to have a super preparation for the 2018 NRL season.

“It is travelling really well and feeling really good,” he said of the injury.

“I really tried to rest it the last month, to not doing anything and just let that fracture heal.

“It was disappointing I didn’t get to play in the World Cup.

“But it meant I got to come back to training earlier and begin working on my game for next year.”

Sims will play his 100th NRL game early in the new season, and shapes as an important starter for the Broncos after the departure of Adam Blair to the Warriors.
