27 weeks post-ACL, expected to join the group after Christmas.
Fellow forward Josh Begley has looked sharp on the track as he continues to strengthen his knee following an ACL rupture on ANZAC Day this year.

“Josh Begley is now 27 weeks after his ACL injury. He’s building up high volumes of mostly straight-line training – he’s up around the nine or 10km session mark at the moment – we do that to get some foundation in.

“We’ll start layering in some change of direction and jumping and other functional movements over the next couple of months, and he’ll be looking to integrate with the group after Christmas.”

Hope the kid can break into the team after great form playing midfield in the VFL, but it’s not going to be easy perhaps mid or towards the later part of the season he may crack into the side.

I’m not sure he will though. It’s a tough ask with the depth we have going around now.

I'm leaning more toward the earlier part of the season when it's warmer, more need for a fridge then :moustache:
