Nakia Cockatoo Biography

Friday, 19 May 2017
Nakia Cockatoo is out of the game by quarter-time after hurting his right hamstring early in the Cats' clash against the Western Bulldogs at Simonds Stadium.
Monday, 27 March 2017
Nakia Cockatoo will miss up to a month after injuring his thumb in the Cat's 42-point win over Fremantle.

"Unfortunately, he's hurt his thumb. He's going to need surgery tomorrow and he's going to miss a few weeks, maybe four," Geelong coach Chris Scott told Fox Footy.

"He's having a little bit of a tough run."

Monday, 6 February 2017
Nakia Cockatoo believes he's improved his game after a strong pre-season.

"My game's come a long way," Cockatoo said after training.

"I know the right patterns to run now and there's always guys pointing me in the right direction.

"I'm just trying to get to the right spots and I feel like that's starting to show at training."

Thursday, 19 May 2016
Geelong is satisfied that Nakia Cockatoo did not do any further damage to his right knee when he returned to play after being injured against West Coast.

The 19-year-old had surgery last week to pin down his lateral ligament after suffering the injury against the Eagles.

"We're absolutely satisfied that going back on to the ground didn't contribute to any further damage," Scott said.

Scott said without surgical intervention Cockatoo may have returned more quickly but because of the player's age the best option was surgery.

"With a young player we thought it was really important to take the surgical option and that was absolutely right," Scott said.

"It is what it is. It's disappointing. He was shaping as a really important player for us. We're just going to have to wait for a couple of months before we get him back but we're sure we will."

Friday, 13 May 2016
Nakia Cockatoo will be sidelined for up to eight weeks after having surgery on his right knee.

Cockatoo injured the lateral ligament during the win over the Eagles but played out the match.

It was initially believed to be a calf injury after the game, but further investigation revealed Cockatoo's knee problem.

Coach Chris Scott said the Cats were still unsure of the exact injury, but the club would tend towards caution when managing the explosive youngster.

"We're usually very conservative with young players," Scott said.

"The situation with Nakia is that it was a very difficult assessment to make and the diagnosis is still not clear at the moment, so we're not sure of his status at the moment but optimistic it's not a serious issue."

Friday, 27 March 2015
Geelong extends the contracts of youngsters Nakia Cockatoo and Cory Gregson for a further year, tying them to the club until the end of 2017.

"Both boys have managed to impress through their skill and personal values in their short time here," Geelong's general manager of football, Steve Hocking, said.

"The signing of these two young talents has the future looking even more positive."

Thursday, 15 January 2015
The foot problems that dogged draft bolter Nakia Cockatoo are a thing of the past and the speedster now has his sights set on making his debut for Geelong.

"It's pretty much trying to get my body right now and I'm looking forward to the season," he said.

"I'm still trying to ease into full training. I've been doing about 80 or 85 per cent (like other draftees).

"I've been doing weights and all my conditioning after training, so it's been good."

Friday, 28 November 2014
Geelong uses its first pick in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft on a player that played little football in his draft year after selecting Nakia Cockatoo with pick No.10.

Cockatoo shot to prominence after a sensational performance in the curtain raiser on Grand Final day when representing an under age all-star team.

He had an operation after touring Europe with the AIS-AFL Academy to repair his injured foot and did not return until Grand Final day.

However Geelong recruiting manager Stephen Wells said the club had seen enough of Cockatoo to use pick No.10 on the tall Northern Territorian.

"We've seen plenty of Nakia with his year's in the under-16 championships, with the AFL Academy last year and also under-18 championships last year. We saw enough of him to use our top-10 pick," Wells said.
