Imagine the following;

* game times return to full length allowing running machines like Sam Walsh to go to another level (yes another level) and Patrick cripps to grind out more clearances.
* potentially the best key position forward in the league to get his knee right and join big Harry to absolutely give defences nightmares.
* our highly rated 2019 first round draft pick Brodie Kemp is up and running and showing his elite ability.
* we are considered a destination club with great capacity to make finals and do some damage when we do, meaning that free agents and top notch players are keen to join.

Bring on 2021!!

there are no other teams worthy
Hardly surprising
Yep, my guess is because it was getting close to end of season anyway, they just played him, hoping he would have no further trouble with it last 3 games and if he did have further issues like he did late last night, just pull the pin.
He has been good value in first season adjusting to a new club. Now play some more guys that need more senior football in last two games.

Sam Edmund reporting on SEN Jack Martin most likely won’t play last 2 H&A games with another calf injury..
While I reckon he is right and the cue will be in the rack now, Jack wasn't too put off... Seemed pretty happy after the game

Great pick up... Easily a player that could become AA in a successful team.

Dow with knee issues requiring a clean-up? Guess that explains the lack of explosiveness.

Hopefully he's looking in much better nick in 6 months time.
If lingering knee issue that just needs a clean up that's great. Hopefully he gets it right. Makes it even more confusing why he was picked and played in a pretty must win game though.

Unless the level of clean out is somewhat normal for some players and he's just not as good at playing through the pain. No idea really, just seems odd they'd pick him with that going on.

Should note that I'm guessing there, they might just go non-surgical.
