Nope. Just put managed. Hope all is ok for LDU.
Even managed is dangerous because it looks like we've got this dud who is in cotton wool a week after returning from a game off. And to be honest, if it was mental issues or the like, managed is one of the codes for that.

Personal reasons is just that. Generally, it means family reasons and generally those reasons come to light. If they don't, it means all is well.

Why put that as the reason for him being out. Couldn't they have just said injured or managed. Personal reasons ffs. All that does is draw speculation and rumour. The club should be smarter than that.
Turn it up, you speculate more than anyone on this board.

It’s no one’s business what his personal reason is.

Condolences to Luke and his family.
His Dad has lost his battle with cancer.
RIP Uni.
You never know what the players are dealing with off the field. That's shocking to hear, similar news happened to another one of our young guys in Comben losing his mum earlier this year. It's a terrible thing to happen to such young men.

Hope Luke takes all the time he needs so he can come back into the club to get the support he needs going forward.

Condolences to the Davies-Uniacke family. I remember when Luke was drafted his parents bounding out of the building to his first interview beaming with relief he was staying in Victoria. Sad to see a parent go so prematurely and not see the full rewards of their child's life, and career because I'm sure this path to AFL is a shared one.
