We possibly don't see Yeo until a prelim.

I'd honestly rather shut him down for the year than risk "Judding" him and permanently losing explosive Yeo.

Haggers this morning reported that Yeo doesn't want to take painkillers to play again this season for fear of worsening his OP like Joe Daniher. The implication being that if he doens't take painkillers he won't be able to play. Sounded like the usual Haggers drivel.

Obviously Hagdorn is a hack, but Yeo is right that using painkillers to fight through OP could be a disaster.

My reference to drivel was not about the issue of painkillers worsening OP - it was about Hagdorn tending to make a lot of things up.

I doubt whether Yeo actually said anything about it to anyone (including his "close confidantes" - to whom Haggers credited the story).

I think if we get past Week 1 of the finals and Yeo could play hampered, he will play. Yeo's a clubman - he will put his hand up and declare himself right to go even if he isnt.

Has the club given any further word on Yeo?

Ideally, would have like him to play this week just for some touch/match fitness but thats looking increasingly unlikely

I suspect he is going to be playing through discomfort when he gets back, so they have probably decided to give him more time to recover and save him for when it really matters.

They grabbed their mobile devices and summoned the WCE website like witches around a nightfire. Numbers appeared to dance in the flames, a leaping 41, a bullocking 6, a loping 4, an explosive 13. These were good omens.
Indefatigable hudson2006 looked in fine nick as he scribbed down his thoughts. One of several posters on notice within the injuries thread, he took to the task like a duck to the Sanctuary Cove water features. Both are sights we have grown accustomed to in recent times.

It is strange to see Big Footy posters writing this way. But 2020 continues to provide strange experiences for us all.

The QLD sun beats down in its heavy manner, but it is apparent that we are all in high spirits. With the team flying into finals, hudson2006 will be asked to call upon all of his hard work to accurately describe updates to the injury list.
