Ahead of his return to the field this weekend, Blake Ferguson spoke to the media this morning about his recovery, his trip to the States, how he stays motivated and the upcoming clash against the Warriors in New Zealand.

Playing his first game since Round 4 on Saturday, Blake has been itching to get back to the game, working overtime to get fit and back out on the field with his teammates. 

"It's not hard to keep motivated when you're not playing footy".
