I'm one of the blasphemers who won't lose sleep if Cogs misses.
It’s definitely been an extremely painful couple of years keeping the faith re Cogs.

In terms of upside potential though, he offers more than anyone else returning from injury.

If he has a shocker against the Blues or pulls up sore then we’ll know he’s done for the year.

But if he comes out strong it will be a huge positive.

We should have a medical/conditioning partnership and exchange with other Sydney pro-sports teams and WS University.

Could extend that partnership model to the ACT too.

Obvious sports team candidates would be an NRL team and the Sydney Kings (who have the Boomers Olympic team physio).

I appreciate that there areas of knowledge that are AFL specific, but overall there’s a stack of expertise is Syd/Cbr and we should leverage it.

Good ideas.
Soft tissue injuries preceded the cut to the soft-cap. Would still be interesting to know how the Giants managed the cuts and how that compared to less injury riddled clubs.

I saw a picture on HH's IG account of Cumming at Barnbougle wearing a moon boot.

He's 100/1 to play you'd think.

Not at all.
They use the moon boots dare more than they used to
These days sometimes you have players wearing moon boots between training sessions. The stability helps.
This doesnt mean he'll play of course , but wearing a moon boot doesn't mean you're no chance.

Yep. The boot can be used to reduce the load on the ankle to avoid more swelling.
Not great, obviously, but a pretty standard way for athletes to manage non-structural injuries.
