I mean most in the media only know about 5 of our players and most of them are injured.
The thing that I find strange about it is the media were running stories all off season about our incredible depth. I know its strange but it's like they're trying to pump our opponents up during the week either by diminishing our chances or by hammering the oppo. Try to find sound bites about how port are going we're the only team from last years top four currently in the top 4 we should be getting the same treatment as Melbourne, Footscray and Richmond are but nope nary a whisper

If you're going to have a bunch of players injured at once this is probably the time of year for it. They all had full pre seasons so the fitness base is there for quick returns and an immediate impact once given the all clear. This is very similar to the timing of the injury crisis the club faced in 2004 when everyone was back fit and firing for the lead up to finals. We've got this.

McKenzie is getting back into form so he is an automatic replacement. I was hoping for Lachie to get more game time into him but it was not to be.

I won't share the entirety of Darren Meads FB post, on the Jackson injury. However I will share that he played with the ruptured spleen through the last quarter and ended up in ICU a couple hours later. They are extremely thankful he is well, and footy will be a while off as he recovers.

Sounds like pretty much the worst case scenario for him, and that it will cripple his year unfortunately.


Here's the last part of it though.
