Not sure what the standard of physios they had for NZ cricket, but they couldn't get him fit for an extended period of time and it's a shame.
Don't think the standard of physios was the problem with Bond. He just didn't have a body that was durable enough to withstand the demands of test cricket.

I guess there are quite a few other fast bowlers that have had their fair share of injury problems too, Flintoff, Lee, Steyn, Edwards etc. It puts a lot of stress on your body trying to bowl long spells of 140-150kph.
