The Sportsmed team have started the winter sports season in great fashion. Kate and Katie were sideline with Woodlands and Star and Andrew was watching his beloved Woodlands team when they all worked together to prevent what could have been a serious incident on the weekend. The team at Sportsmed are proud to be giving up their time in the weekends to be assisting Southland sport. Thanks Debbie Fahey for the photos.

Inservice training this morning at Sportsmed Southern Physiotherapy where we all spend time together upskilling and sharing thoughts, ideas and new research so that we can deliver the best treatment possible to our patients. Also a chance to have a coffee and scone from our friends at The Batch. Karl used to be able to bring these in by himself but now with our ever growing staff (9 FT physios) he needed to get the big fella Andrew to help him!

A big congratulations to Karl McDonald for his Southland Sports Award in recognition of his contribution to the Japanese Rugby World Cup team where he was the Lead Physiotherapist and also the head of the medical team.

Such a great achievement for the man we love to call Macca and awesome to see a Southlander doing their thing on the world stage. He has spent his fair share of time on the sideline for both the Star and Marist Rugby Clubs as well as with the Stags, making a huge contribution to rugby in Southland over the years.

Keep up the good work Macca!
