Earlier, Laurie Daley provided an update on Cordner following an opposed training session yesterday.

"Things are looking positive, but again we've got to wait and see how he's pulled up tomorrow and we'll get a better indication because he ran yesterday and we upped the ante again today,” Daley said.

"I spoke to him after training and he just said he was feeling really good and very positive, so with those types of injuries you just have to wait and see how they pulled up."
