24 year old West Coast Eagles superstar Nic Natanui’s (pictured) recovery after knee surgery is well on the way.

The giant ruckman has begun running again after months of rehab in the gym, with the clubs medical staff guiding him through a number of carefully designed drills.

Natanui says while its only a small step along the way to full recovery, he’s happy to have got what was a fairly significant day out of the way.
