He landed on the synthetic grass at Marvel which would have made his concussion worse.
Don't get me wrong I wasn't by any means trying to have a crack at him.
Very courageous effort.
I really sincerely hope that he is alright! (One of my favs). I was (and wasn't) shocked at how full on the concussion was thats all.

Williamson pushed back even further as the weeks go on. Has gone from 2 to 3 to now 3-4. That is really scary but Willo and Rhino kinda rhyme if you read between the lines.

Mate, I don't believe anyone thought you were having a crack.
The lingering effects of concussion have been known to last upwards of 6 months (not including the trauma itself) so while I'd love to have Jones back in the side, I'm glad the club is bringing him back slowly.

A Saints member in the know says McCartin can’t even stay on a bike to ride it. We should be grateful if Liam comes back in a few weeks.

Lobbe should have been asked to retire ahead of midseason draft to give us another pick. Absolute no-brainer. We’ve paid him good money to do very little so it’s not as if he’s a loyal servant.

A real lack of imagination with our list management of late.
My guess is that Lobbe is probably getting paid a fair bit more than what a rookie would.. May have other implications

Also very highly spoken of by other players as someone they are learning a lot from. TDK, McKay, Curnow etc.
Could have had the capacity to keep him on in a coaching role, salary cap permitting?

Would definitely prefer him as a ruck coach to Hamish McIntosh, Lobbe seems like a good leader with a strong work ethic.

Yeah...nah.

The pool of mid-draft talent wasn't great...many clubs were passing.

We've already added Gibbons, Cottrell and Deluca due to long-term injuries and Bugg retiring. We don't need another guy from the VFL when all the talent was gone and there was no Tim Kelly available.
