I don't get why they're persisting when he's clearly injured. It's not like playing on one leg he still offers something to the team that someone else couldn't do.
The plan is to grind him into the ground so that he is broken for good and the SA clubs don't want him.

Guelfi has been great since dying his hair, I'd imagine that Raz will come out and score 10 this weekend if he plays
Speaking of the hair, I thought it was interesting that Fantasia said he had to dye his hair because of a behavioural issue, and not because he lost a bet or wanted a change. Wonder what's going on there.

The bloke is clearly injured but lets be honest we have a real lack of ready made small forwards on the list. Mosquito is going to be fantastic but isn't ready,I reckon Snelling has a bit about him but injured and Devon smith is out for the season. Him out there is better than watching defenders dance around Baugley all night.

Yes and a few weeks it was reported that he’s needs hip op at end of season. Wonder if it’s another OP type injury
Ah, I heard surgery and lots of "soft tissue" injuries which he's had a lot of calves, quads, hamstrings and such. I know I've heard 'hip' mentioned but didn't realise it was *the* injury, so to speak.

It's interesting that the whole leg seems to be affected. Seems to suggest that it's all interrelated, rather than being a recurring issue with one particular muscle. Hopefully whatever surgery is done on his hip sorts the rest of it out as well.
