They wanted to try non invasive. Didn't work. Elected for surgery. Now a fracture in his knee. Not transparent enough?

There was no mention at the time of the injury diagnosis that there was a depressed fracture in his leg along with the PCL damage.

They're selective and secretive for no reason.

Are you aware of the exact date and time he was diagnosed with the fracture? Or that they didn't seek further diagnosis/analysis? You are searching for something to be pi**ed off about. He got injured. It happens.

Again, went non invasive. Didn't work. Had surgery. Developed small fracture. Now injured. Not that hard.

The second para of that article says it all:

'...recovery from a partial PCL tear, posterior capsule tear and depressed fracture of the tibia..'

They sure as s**t didn't include the second and third issues as part of the original injury announcement.

They went with 'Minor PCL'.

Had so much X-factor and composure while he was playing but almost forgetting what he looks like at this stage. Just want him back playing VFL and let him build slowly back to the seniors.

Club has been somewhat obtuse in its updates around Will. And that’s being kind.

Only a hazy memory now, but for me he was showing much more upside and excitement than LDU in his first year, both taken in the same draft.
