Does anyone have a recent update on how Stewart is tracking?
Well, we know he's alive since he was photographed at Team Photo Day today. Training reports online saying he's in the modified group, but running and kicking the ball. I guess that's something?

The last injury update we got from the club was that he went to Ireland in November for some sort of program with Daniher and one of the physios, but when Daniher went back last month he seemed to go alone.

Tippa went traditional footy pic - look straight ahead eyes closed. Laverde and Stringer look like they were just told they were competing for the same spot this year.

Injury update!

Running freely and with speed, rejoins the main group in 3-4 weeks and also doing agility and pelvic strength work.

Fellow forward James Stewart has been off the scene since booting four goals in the opening round of the 2019 VFL season, but the versatile tall has been kicking goals on the track and is closing in on his return to full training as he recovers from his own groin injury.

“James is doing extremely well. Like Joe, he’s got to work on his strength and capacity around the pelvis,” Rundle said.

“He’s running freely, he’s running with good speed, he’s doing some good agility work and he should be integrating back in with group within the next three to four weeks.”

Light training session on Friday morning. This sentence was buried on the Blitz thread;
"Of the injured players: Stewart, kicking off left and right with lateral movements, shouldn’t be far off joining the main group."

Very much a forgotten man is Stewart, and at 26 he should be coming into his prime. Before he was injured his stats while at the Bombers read pretty damn good;-

stats while at Bombers: average - disposals: 12.5, marks: 4.5, goals: 1.4, inside 50's: 2.5, tackles: 1.8

If he can come back and provided a tall target up forward and replicate those sort of stats then he will a huge bonus for us
