Wests Tigers hooker Matt Ballin says he’s confident he’s recovered after consecutive knee injuries ruined his 2016 NRL season.

Ballin was devastated when he suffered another injury just three games back after his first knee reconstruction.

With former Tigers skipper Robbie Farah now gone from the club, Ballin says he’ll be going all out to repay the clubs medical staff that has worked so hard to help him get back on the paddock in 2017.
