Will get over his injuries,have a break out year and then ask for trade you watch.
That's the spirit, I knew you had optimism in you!

I thought you would have said he'll ask for a trade then have a break out year in Adelaide. :p

Reckon Fantasia and Laverde need to spend the summer getting strong.

Squats, cleans, the basics. It's the meat and potatoes Lyon referred to implementing at the end of his first year at St Kilda when they were riddled with injury.

They are being managed conservatively, evidenced by the reality that neither has developed physically, and it's not even close to working.

Just hasn't been given a clear run at it, started in pre-season, mentioned this in his podcast, would love for him to have a mini pre-season for 4-6 weeks

sounds like hard work- any way we can fast track the process?

Few boxes to tick but a 9 day break between games means he could be available next week.

The availability of star Bombers Dyson Heppell and Orazio Fantasia for Sunday’s match is less certain.

Heppell pushed through some foot pain in an inspirational performance against the Crows last Friday, while Fantasia missed out due to a minor hip injury, and both Dons have some boxes to tick to prove their fitness for the game against the Suns.

“We have nine days (from the clash with Adelaide) into the Gold Coast game,” Crow said.

“We’re assessing both of those players day by day and we’ll be giving match committee the best information after main training on Thursday about whether or not Dyson or Orazio are available for that game.”
