As mentioned above with Cuners it’s about getting the all clear from the specialist. With a bruised kidney you can’t do any contact training so even if he does get the all clear they might play him through the VFL just to get his legs back.

The above is all speculation on my part.

Other than that, I like that injury list. Interesting re: Kennedy.



Maybe Mr Plow can give a prognosis of when he can return?

Hey Burgers45, it's just not possible to know at this stage without knowledge of the scans and how Cunners is traveling. He was supposedly fine from a symptom perspective, but not being mentioned likely means that there is no update from the specialist. Hopefully only another week or two.

The sooner we get Cunners back on the park the better. We need his run and carry and ability to kick the important goal when it's needed.

We really need Willow across HB atm, I’m super bullish on the kid.

Deadly left peg, has mongrel, not exactly slow and quite agile.

Definite AFL standard player, get out there and go well young man
Took the words out of my mouth. Would love him to develop into a Tom Stewart type. My only knock on him is his overhead marking ( don’t post vision of his one hander at Etihad 😃) in the few games he played I noticed that wasn’t a strength.
Weitering, Jones,Marchbank,Simpson,Newman,Williamson that’s my back 6......what do you think? Plowman out?

I wouldn't be surprised if Williamson comes back and plays on the wing. Our backline is going well and settled. There's a position there. Will be interesting to see where he plays when he comes back.
Winger who drifts back to launch forward, we really lack one of those. Simmo was for a season or so and was a real weapon, not capable anymore.

That height, speed and lethal left boot delivering to three tall marking players, ain’t no defence covering all of that.

Not enough love for Plowman.

Does the blocking and cover work for our intercept defenders and gets the ‘left over’ forward mismatch. After everyone else gets their best matchup, he has been pitted against the resting ruckman and small forward within the same quarter of games. Runs as far as anyone and is solid, if unspectacular, with his disposal.

Players and coaches all mention him as vital to the success of the defence, will take a poor run of form to see him dropped. Makes mistakes like all defenders with less than 100 games experience do, is reliable enough at this stage of his career.

Ok so who goes out of the defence for Williamson when he comes back? Weitering? Jones? Marchbank?

I haven't posted in a very long time...
But I, along with others, can't contain my excitement on the news of Willos return to footy. I might be drawing a long bow with my observation here - but since he's been out of the team - winning has been very few and far between. I'm sure someone could do the math on what our win percentage is with him in compared to with him out. And hes only played a dozen games maybe. Anyways - i bleed navy, just like most on here

Has Docherty officially been ruled out for the year?

I was hoping he might get back to play in the last couple of games, say round 20 onward.

If he's ready to go towards the end of the season, the best option would be to play him. He has missed too much footy and needs to get back onto the park ASAP.

It appears more balanced IMO

Plowman is a conundrum for me, sometimes looks really good, other times not so much

I also can see Willow up the ground as a wingman as others have said. He’ll brain them in either spot the kid

Listed as Indefinite. Not Season. But I just filled all spaces red for the sake of it. Better than not having him on the chart (which was my original plan). You never know. ;)
