IT is the best sign yet that his off-season groin surgery has been a huge success.
Against the Hunters in Port Moresby on Saturday, Jordan Kahu knocked two beautiful conversions over from the sideline.
His action was smooth and his confidence was high.
It’s a far cry from the nightmare he went through last year after suffering a groin injury early in the season.
Kahu was restricted from practicing goal kicking as he would have liked, and even had to give the duties up to Anthony Milford at times as he played through the pain.
But an off-season correction, that cost him a berth in New Zealand’s World Cup team, has worked wonders.
Kahu was planning on letting youngster Jamayne Isaako share the duties against the Hunters.
But after banging the first one over from the left-hand touchline, he felt on a roll.
“I felt a bit sad for Jamayne because I had told him we would go one for one,” said Kahu after the 26-12 win over PNG.
“But I was feeling good, so I just thought I would take them.
“It was feeling good and there were no problems at all.”
It has Kahu refreshed and ready for the season to begin.
This is the last week of the pre-season with the Broncos to kick off the real stuff against the Dragons in Sydney a week from Thursday.
And unlike last year, Kahu will be running – and kicking goals – unhampered.
“I can’t wait,” he said.
