GARY Ablett is close to resuming full contact work on his injured left shoulder and is on track to play two NAB Challenge matches, says Gold Coast coach Rodney Eade.
Ablett has been setting the pre-season track alight as he recovers from the dislocated shoulder that cut his 2014 season seven weeks short, but is yet to undergo the contact test.
However, Eade said the dual Brownlow medallist was close to giving it a full hit-out.
"He had a bit of a watershed weekend where he extended his shoulder a bit more. I'd imagine in a couple of weeks he'll be in full contact," Eade said.
"His fitness levels are fantastic at the moment compared to what he's been in the past, he's gone to another level.
