Looks doubtful


SWELL ANALYSIS
Short term
Tuesday morning offers up a great window of clean, solid surf across exposed Victorian coasts before it slams shut with the arrival of a strong SSW change during the day. That should see a full morning of solid 4 to 6ft surf across the more exposed stretches, grading to a still doable 3 to 4ft+ along the Surf Coast.

From Wednesday onwards the focus shift to the Great Ocean road. A strong cold front sweeping across Bass Strait during the early hours of Wednesday morning leads in a fresh westerly airstream across the region, opening up clean conditions across the reefs as a new round of SW groundswell moves in.

It wasn’t the media that made him tour GWS facilities.

It’s fact that the Tigers were offering him a lowball contract because he wasn’t setting the world on fire. There were big question marks if he was fit enough to run through the midfield at that stage.

Chocco Williams took Dusty under his wing and helped him become the player we know today.

People have the blinkers on and only seem to remember how good he is now and not his struggles early in his career.

He wasn’t on the scrap heap at any stage, but there was a point in his career where he wasnt setting the world on fire.
Yeah i think you will find that with every player not setting the world on fire at some stage. He improved in nearly every stat possible each year in his first 8. Like I postered earlier never going to leave the Tigers at any stage and the Tigers where never not going to sign him as Nutjob rightly confirmed
The media did what the media does what ever sells papers. He is a gun and in my opinion was always going to be a gun.

Meanwhile Rawlings confirmed Luke Davies-Uniacke has also been sidelined.
“Luke’s been battling a pubic overload issue,” he confirmed.

“It’s extremely disappointing because fitness-wise he was setting himself up for a big year.

“We all know what ‘LDU’ is capable of so we’ll put him in a rehabilitation program to build him back up to full strength when the time is right.”

The 20-year-old won’t run for a period of weeks with ongoing tests and assessments to determine his return-to-training date.

“We’ve decided to take an aggressive off-load approach with Luke given his age,” Rawlings said.

“When he’s clinically ‘all-clear’, we will re-load him conservatively and start him on a running program.”

Some of the finest excess word usage this side of the 20th century.

Look for him to be out for the season.

He has OP, that is clear. This will take a decent chunk of time to recover from and because its not like a clean fracture or muscle tear the time frame is up in the air. The club has told us what it can.

I won't need to open the door on my way out of work tonight, i'm that flat i'll just slide under.

What is going on at this football club? Our injury list gets longer every year.
