Reds’ Wright is wary when Drua from the super rugby tale comes into play
“It’s really just a warning sign.”
The Reds are 2-1 after a tough defeat in Canberra by the Brumbies last time out, but Wright is buoyed by the form of the fit five-eighth James O’Connor and confident in his own health.
“You saw he got exactly what you want in a high achiever,” Wright said of O’Connor, who came off the bench to replace Tom Lynagh for the second straight week.
“His renewed energy and speed too…was on full display.”
Wallabies hopeful Wright has suffered a string of injuries and started the year on the bench with a first-round concussion.
But he’s put in 80-minute performances in his last two games.
“I don’t want to speak too soon, but I’ve already played more minutes than all of last year,” he said.
“That’s big for me, two 80-minute performances.”
Wright said where, after struggling with performance anxiety and concerns, he learned not to take gaming for granted.
“It’s a renewed love for all that stuff; I just remember being able to sit on the sidelines now and watch…it’s good to be out there,” he said.
“But I won’t speak too soon; I’d like to play three, four, five games in a row before I feel like I’m back on track.”
