To get a positive against all the negativity, Bailey’s main weaknesses is size and strength. So been off his feet he can eat some iron in the gym and come back next year with a few months extra in the gym.

Fractured feet are a far bigger worry for older players. I expect he’ll be right to go for a big preseason, even if we nurse him through to Christmas. I also expect he and Wrighty will do a ripping rendition of “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies” with their newfound ballet skills at the end of year review.

Bailey Scott is still a chance to return at the end of the season despite fracturing a bone in his foot.

Scott, who has played four games this season, had surgery in June to fix the problem.

“It’s still touch and go as to whether he’ll play again this season,” Joyce said.

“He needs to see the surgeon and have an x-ray, and depending on those results he could potentially start running again.”

(tangent)- Can't recall a situation like Joyce before? The bloke has been given a very long notice period and is still seemingly involved with strategic decisions and communications.

The Footy Gods smile on our approach since Rhys took over.

Yeah no need to have him play this year, plonk his butt in the weights room and have him buffed and firing R1 next year.

Picks up the oppositions most damaging running player every week, whether they be half backs/wings or half forwards, and shuts them down, then provides a link up option when we have the ball.

Lots of hit up footpassing and tackling work over the preseason.

I like it.

His old man played that type of run-with role for us in the 90s didn’t he?

Agreed, his ability to keep his feet in those one on one contests you get out wide will be crucial here, he'll generate scoring opportunity turnovers.

He's the kind of bloke who has the mental discipline for such a role too.
