    Pretty severe and a pity for him as he had a pretty positive preseason up until that point.. Not good obviously, but I am not fussed. We are in transition as a team and we have emerging players who I am excited to see play. Structurally it shouldn't damage us.

    You are an optimist. Ballantyne provides forward pressure that no one has replicated. Except maybe Grey, but he doesn't have the finishing ability that Ballas has. If Hagdorn is correct (I know, right? - but his manager is a mate), that is a big blow.

    I think ballas is a big loss, but when someone out opportunity open for other , Langdon might move there or d.pearce , just need to structure differently .

    That really sucks for Ballas, especially after doing his hammy last preseason too. Hopefully being out that long doesn't ruin the rest of his season. Good opportunity for the other kids.

    The one good thing is that he's done the full pre-season program plus he's a vet so he'll have that base fitness. Once he completes his rehab, I think he'll be up to full capacity fairly quickly. Might prove to be a valuable injection for the second half of the year.

    However, I am concerned he's starting to become a bit injury prone. He's always played at such high intensity, maybe it's all starting to catch up to him.

    Was it the same Knee that restricted him last year?

    Haggers did also say that Lycett wouldn't play a game of football til May and Lycett suited up for East Perth on the weekend. I'll hang out for a second source.

    That forward pressure was no more obvious than 2 games ago when the little bloke corralled three players on his own. This led to them kicking across goal and the ball went out of bounds.

    He will be missed.

    Bennell when back is class act , why waste him doing that kind of pressure role like ballas, part of reason ballas hammy is the way he run. HF is the place bennell play and replace blakely . weller ,Langdon,deluca,d.pearce and grey will be good for ballas role . just don't expect the same style of play like ballas they all have different strength .

    Ballaz three months, damn! Suban in for ballaz i guess after the peel hitout. Would love to give Grey a go though. Sheridan and Croz not cutting mustard i feel, role players at best but Ross likes those players.

    Would love to hear news on Apeness when available, especially if Griff goes down (2nd ruck/forward player). I think Hale is having a good impact on Griff and Ape

    Yeah I think we're all sweating on the big Ape update and hoping it's simple and innocuous.I've no doubt Hale is having a good influence on the two of them but also that he has a bit to work with.Griff's looking as though he's back to pre-knee levels of fitness and mobility and I've always felt Michael A just needed an injury free run at it to cement a spot.
    Bloody hard to do that with only a six pack of AFL games in 3 years,so here's hoping the big lug's good to go.:thumbsu:

    If RTB isn't going to use Crozier at half back, he's more use in the pocket than at HF. As far as defensive acts, I will never forget that dump of Burgoyne in the forward pocket and the follow up "and ####### stay down..."

    Why have we never played like that again? Went for a shootout with the Hawks and won.

    Not the best and not the worst.
    Mick has had posterior surgery previously so hopefully the other knee and no long term weakness.
    Good luck to both on successful and speedy rehab.

    I really feel for Apeness. I'm very good mates with his cousin and from what I hear he just needs more game time to up his confidence. He just can't catch a break.

    The cub has announced 8 - 10 weeks, so thats a bit less that old mate crumpet face.

    Even when he's part right, he manages to get it wrong
