The Tigers usually are conservative with bringing players back. So I guess that Jack will come back cherry ripe. Interesting to see if they give him a game in the VFL to warm up or not. Anyway, the forward line is Tom's now. So Jack will be going back in time to when Richo roamed forward 50 and he had to fit in :D

Adams, Moore and de Goey I will pay. Elliot is one of the most overrated players in the comp and Cox saves his two or three good games a year against us. Wells and Dunn are both cooked old men. Wells has been unreliable for five years now and Dunn was on the wrong side of thirty and coming off a knee reco when he got injured. If the season concluded now both of them would retire, as would Ben Reid and Tyson Goldsack.

Also they’re all short term injuries bar maybe Adams and Langdon (who you forgot to mention) which are more medium term. The majority of our injuries are long term and are to higher quality players that are crucial to our structure. De Goey and Moore missing a couple of weeks here and there would barely effect them.

The major difference between us and them is that they have had β€œinjury concerns” for two weeks, we have had problems since the pre-season, not to mention the quality of players we are missing and their importance to our structure are much more significant than Collingwood’s. I’m not sure how people are failing to understand this.

Rance = 9 weeks
Grigg = 8 weeks (retired)
Riewoldt = 7 weeks
Cotchin = 7 weeks
Short = 7 weeks
Graham = 6 weeks
Houli = 3 weeks
Caddy = 3 weeks
Nankervis 2 weeks
Vlastuin = 1 week
Lambert = 1 week
Rioli = 1 week
Astbury = 1 week

Our best 22 players have missed almost 60 weeks combined this season. How many have Collingwood’s missed? 15? Most of their injuries are to depth players. Guys like Scharenberg, Dunn, Wells, etc. Then we’ve had issues with our depth, most notably Jack Ross who I didn’t include as best 22, but was looking the goods and then goes down for 8 - 10 weeks.

Collingwood have never had anything remotely as bad as what we’re having. They exaggerate the sh*t out of their injuries.
Also, of those listed, 12 of them are premiership players including premiership ruckman Shaun Grigg

I’m expecting there’s a fair chance he doesn’t play at all this year , I’m spitting chips Moore is injured a med marking tall would compliment what we do . Menadue is being tested there , not high hopes of that working

Nanka and soldo playing together is growing legs
I have my money on not seeing jack this year, tbh there’s More chance of Rance making an appearance

I reckon Jack could have out performed Lynch last night even with his injury.
Disagree TI

Jack has had plenty of games like that himself where he has been tripled team and a victim of poor entries inside forward fifty.

He just gets a pass here as he is a three time Coleman medalist.

I mean, maybe he would have out performed him, but my point is, Jack has had games much like Toms last night as well.

Jack always competes at the contest and at least has his radar on the ball where he can at least assist others.
Lynch is way out of sorts atm and isn’t really making a serious contest . His work rate has been poor. There was a video prior to the game suggesting that he wasn’t fit due to injury and this could be a reason. He needs a spell if true as he looked below par.
