I'd like to have a forward line of

FF Tippa Daniher Stringer
HF Laverde Stewart Laverde

By the end of this year. With Begley and Smith also rotating through the forward line and Stringer, Laverde and Tippa taking an odd centre bounce.
Not sure we could ever get 2 Laverdes on the park simultaneously.

Should return in the next couple of weeks. Lots of them are looking at round 10ish returns apparently?

“Jayden’s progress has been good; he’s moving well, he did some of training today.

“We’re looking to return him to play over the next couple of weeks depending on how he tracks in this end stage of his rehabilitation.

If this is the case then he's right on target in the back end of this season to do what he does every year - have an interrupted pre-season, break down during the season proper and then play 7 or 8 senior games with 1 or 2 flashy type games so he stays on the list a little longer.....

Club physical performance manager Justin Crow said versatile 23-year-old Jayden Laverde is on track after overcoming a hamstring strain that has kept him off the field in the last fortnight.

“Jayden’s fully training this week and we expect him to be available, assuming that all goes well, this weekend,” Crow said on the SKINS Injury Update.

Hasnt played seniors all season and is coming off a 2 week hamstring.... i would be stunned if he came straight into the seniors, it would be a disservice to him more than anything.

Ridley played his role up forward last weekend in the VFL, i would promote Ridley to replace Franga forward and let Laverde take his usual role in the VFL side for at least a week.
