For Bruce, they did say in the press conference today that he could have played, but saw no point in putting him in when they could take the safe option. So "at least a week" is probably not so accurate, more like "managed".OK, so in the apparent absence of an official list here's what appears to be the injury list. It's a quarter of our list although over half of these are pretty close and most would be expected to be OK for Round 1.
Jong (high grade hamstring tear) - 8-10 weeks
Wood (hammy tightness) - 2 weeks
Garcia (ACL rehab) - a fair while yet
Libba (knee rehab) - getting into full training soon
Duryea (hip?) - still a fair way off
Wallis (stress fracture in leg/ankle) - close to full training (?)
Keath (stress fracture in leg) - available
English (concussion) - at least a week
Suckling - (??) - being "managed"
Bruce (back spasm) - at least a week
Naughton (knee surgery) - available
Feel free to make corrections ... but please don't say I've missed a few!
Pretty sure I read that Duryea has been running with the main group, so hopefully getting closer to a return. Should return early in the season from what I know of, but not 100% sure on him.
The press conference today also mentioned Wallis being in good shape, unless I misheard
