The Rebels have announced that they came through their Super Rugby season opening 35-14 victory over the Cheetahs in Melbourne without picking up any further injuries.

Rebels head of Athletic Performance Bryce Cavanagh said that the team had been prepared for the rise in intensity.

"It was great to get through our first Super Rugby match of the season without any further injury concerns to report," said Cavanagh.

"The boys had been well prepared for the rise in intensity, both tactically and physically, and with the entire replacement bench utilised we will head to Perth fit, refreshed and ready to go around again."

"Jack Debreczeni sustained a knock to his knee while playing a Dewar Shield trial for Endeavour Hills on the weekend, and will be assessed in the coming days. "

"New signing Male Sau joins up with the squad match fit, and available for selection."

Cavanagh also said that from the existing injuries scrumhalf Nic Stirzaker was still looking at 3 to 4 weeks out of action with an ankle injury.

Hooker Tom Sexton has already been ruled out for the season knee injury while lock Chris Thomson's wrist and knee injuries will keep him out indefinitely.
