Last season Kaysa Pritchard suffered a serious injury and while he was able return to preseason training in October 2018, he continues to deal with some residual impact from that injury.
As a result, the Club has granted Kaysa’s request for some time away from the game to assess his immediate playing future.
Parramatta Eels General Manager of Football, Mark O’Neill, said the Club was doing everything possible to support Kaysa through this time.
“Our first priority is looking after Kaysa’s health and well-being ,” O’Neill said.
“Kaysa has been open with the Club about the impact from the injury he suffered and while we consider it a private medical matter, he is aware that he has our full support."
“We request that Kaysa’s privacy is respected at this difficult time."
Kaysa and the Club will not be commenting further at this time.
