Probably heard it from this article on the bombers website from yesterday

"A leg injury has kept exciting ruckman Sam Draper away from the main group in recent sessions but he is expected to soon return to full fitness."

Re: scrapping with Nic Nat

"it was standing up for my teammates and standing up for myself. It's an area of my game I've tried to excel in and put some time into and I like to make my teammates stand taller and if I keep doing that then that's great"

I can't express how much I love this. Sounds like there's not much he wouldn't do for his team mates. I've said it before, but Drapes is gonna give oppo supporters the sh*ts.

I wasn't taking notes or anything but it felt like we really had the ascendancy in the midfield when he was in the ruck. He wasn't up against much by way of quality opposition it must be said but I'm still super pumped up for what he'll bring this year.
