    Having had Achilles tendonitis for the best part of 18 months a while back, it can certainly be painful but not necessarily restrictive in the context of playing sport. It tends to be more of an issue when cold and an annoyance when getting up in the morning, resuming activity after sitting down or when initially warming up. I suppose every case could have its differences though.

    Apart from that, is it too early to put Leuenberger up as my tip for the 2012 B&F?

    Perhaps it is the original achilles problem.
    Damn shame.

    Leuenberger and Black were BOG last time we beat the Suns.

    Wasn't injured enough to stop him playing. It's a risk you have to take

    A six week injury to Bergs, confirmed on the club's website :thumbsdown:

    So it seems that on average, for every time we play Freo we lose a key player for three games running!

    Shit...

    Recruiting Hudson pays off very early.

    Hope he and Billy can stay fit until Leuey's return.Medical staff need to take the time to get Leuey right. Don't want him turning into a Charman. That would be a disaster situation.

    At least 6 weeks.

    Hope you recover quicker than that, Leuey.

    Looks like Billy will get a chance to get some quick development under his belt.

    Ahhhh. That is a shame:mad:

    Billy it is your time to step up.

    Thankfully I think Hudson and Longer will be able to do a more then serviceable job with Leuy out!

    A reasonable outcome would be for a return after the bye, June 17.

    When I saw him hobbling around with his lower leg bandaged up I probably would have taken six weeks

    You'd think so. Not that they would admit it.

    I'd be surprised to see him back before the bye TBH.
