Not Cats related, but Rayner out for season is a big loss for Lions. I had them as a major chance with Daniher up there. I see our old pal Cocky is still battling with a Hammie up there...

Will be (and needs to be) left on the sidelines for at least the first month now. Totally not worth the risk to rush him back.
Thankfully, that is what they will do.
Even put him back an extra week if need be.
We go 2-2 or even 1-3, it's not panic stations. Lose Cameron again though, Hawkins simply won't be able to do it himself, not at his age now.

My mate just spoke to Sean Simpson. Sam did a quad at training a few weeks ago. His shoulder is good but he's only just started running in straight lines so he's a few weeks off yet.
Thats very disappointing.

Get him right - we need his class

Not great, but we have the time and space to get him cherry ripe. I'm sure he'll be demanding his spot back soon enough

maybe they just don't know how long Ratugolea will be out

when the injury occurred a month or so ago they initially thought nothing was wrong, just a saw leg as scans showed nothing wrong. It was when his leg was still sore & not getting better that scans then showed a fracture at the site of his old fracture

So this probably is just a waiting game to see how it heals, how long it takes and what they need to do

Had a chat to Sav Ratagolea this morning, says he’s running and expects to train with the boys in the next few days, but won’t risk racing back. So I reckon he’s still 3-4 weeks away.
Impressive physique isn't he.
6ft'6 and looks as powerful as they come.

(God' be great to live in a body like that just for one day of my life)
