Late Mail:Jai Arrow is confident he’ll be fit to play this weekend after going down with back spasms in the loss to Cronulla. Arrow was in agony on Saturday night in Perth when he slumped to the turf and struggled to get off the field despite having two trainers there to help him. He was able to get back on the exercise bike 10 minutes later but did not return to the field and later underwent scans. “I was a bit scared at the time, but it was just back spasms which kind of made my legs weak,” he said on Tuesday. “It was a different feeling because I haven’t had back problems before. It’s a bit tight, but I’m sure I’ll be fine for this weekend.
“I know I was carrying on a bit but it was more when it made my legs weak because I was pretty scared because I didn’t know what happened when my back seized up. “I was surprised that I couldn’t stand up straight. It felt OK when they lifted me on their shoulders so I felt OK, but as soon as I put my hands back down again, my back seized up again.” The Rabbitohs are desperate for Arrow to play given regular props Tom Burgess (suspension) and Junior Tatola (injury) are both missing. Shaquai Mitchell has been named to replace Burgess in the starting side to face the Dragons.
