Our best lock down defender, Hooker doesn't have the pace to go with leading forwards like JK and Darling

Put Ambrose on the opposition’s best leading key forward ie: KENNEDY!!
He’s not slow and he has endurance. Scoring shots on Hurley in a half = 8
Scoring shots on Ambrose in a half = 1

Has a history of a past bad quad and missed a lot of footy. Hope it’s not too bad

Our injury luck has been quite poor this year.
At the very least we have depth here, but this is a s**t one to have happen to a guy having a career best season

Confirming what we already know but with more detail.

“Pat has a low-grade tear on the surface of the muscle in his kicking leg (in his quad).

“It’s really the location and the fact it’s his kicking side that will cost him there, rather than the actual grade of the injury.”

Not sure if anyone else picked up on it but I thought I saw Ambrose grabbing his quad in the later stages of the game VS West Coast. Anyone with footage feel free to post!
