RD 21 will do 3 games H/A the week off and 3 finals.
He's been training strongly now for a little bit. The aim is to get a large training block into him before he plays VFL. He could realistically play this week but they're being ultra conservative. I think we'll see him in the VFL in 4 or 5 weeks based on the reports I've read. Say about round 13-14.

Shockingly that would be consistent with the medium term diagnosis on the club website (4-8 weeks, but he's been that way for a few now).

He's doing a mini pre-season. Given his knee injury and previous hamstring issues they're taking the ultra conservative approach and giving his legs a test on the track to make sure he's 100% right to go before he returns. Pretty sensible for a player they rate extremely highly.

He didn't look hindered at all on the track and looked in really good nick but that was from limited vision.

Unless there's a set-back again, which we'll never know then he shouldn't be too far away.

Menegola out until after the bye:

Winning so many games early means we can afford to take the time to get guys like Menegola and Selwood right. Glad it's happening now and not on the eve of finals. It also might explain some of his struggles so far this year.

Forgive my ignorance but with Henderson rupturing his plantar fascia is that a similar result to What Harvey did jumping off a table? That it will heal quickly?

He wasn't a certainty for round 1 either iirc.
They were getting the k's into his legs during the JLT - we saw him jogging with a physio after playing in the JLT over here , looked like he was doing around 5 kilometres based on where we saw him from the ground.

However, Lachie Henderson is expected to miss the next handful of matches after re-injuring his plantar fascia that ruled him out of the start to the season.

"He'll miss 2-3 weeks, we think, but long-term, because he's got a small rupture in that plantar fascia, that will be a better outcome for him," Scott said.
