Update from Burgo
Bailey Laurie fractured his eye socket in a freak training accident last week (ran into Hibbo's elbow) and will miss 6 weeks. That's why he didn't play vs Box Hill
Joel Smith did an MCL in the game against Box Hill and will miss 6-8. Will require surgery
Harmesy outside chance for next week, but more likely the week after

“Ran into Hibbo’s elbow” sounds like one of those depressingly unconvincing stories ERs have to deal with that usually end in a police report

The ever reliable doctor google (lol) , take of it what you will...

Eye socket fractures don't always require surgery. Your doctor will determine if your fracture can heal on its own. You may be advised to avoid blowing your nose for several weeks after the injury. This is to prevent infection spreading from the sinuses to eye socket tissue though a small space in a fractured bone.
This is what happens when you blow your nose with a fractured orbital

Viney saying he'll be ready for the back half of the year. Sounds like we're being conservative with his foot. 8-0 certainly allows us that luxury.
