Apparently the player with the longest current consecutive games streak missed training today. I hope I don't end up with a Crispy cream because of it.

If he's injured...

NFI at this stage. Think it's illness. Sidey was missing from training earlier in the week due to illness. Apparently he's still missing today and so is Crisp. Only going off tweets from one of the pies supporters who attends every training session.

Edit: Sam Edmund has confirmed it's illness.
 

Maybe Tomorrow

Surely he'll be ok by Sunday.

Pommy was sick two weeks ago and still isn't playing this weekend. I hope you're right but the fact they have to fly across the country might count against him.
English is soft as butter though.

You don't play a thousand games consecutively like Crisp without being able to put up with niggles.

Not the weekend for looping in defence though if he's a chance at being a late out.

Can't see this happening. We'll know through their supporters if he doesn't get on the plane. Even if he's named tonight, we'll know by Saturday if he's not playing. If he flies, he'll play.

Not so sure about that. They might take him hoping he'll be OK, but he doesn't recover in time. Collingwood need all the senior players they can get.

It would be absolutely nuts to put someone who is still unwell on a plane with the rest of the squad. If he hasn't fully recovered by the time they leave, they deserve for the entire squad to be wiped out if they let him get on the plane when he is still unwell.

He could be on the mend by Friday, but still down on energy. So he travels but doesn't feel right to play on Sunday.

I have him so I hope he plays anyway.
