Heard some good news re Charlie...similar to what B70 posted a week or so ago.

A few weeks ago Charlie’s surgeon figured out was the cause of the issue was (it was different to what they previously thought) and is now confident they can manage the issue going forward.

Source is solid but is 3rd hand.
Source & news accepted. Solid work yourself.

I shouldn’t go here but is the surgeon who very nearly destroyed an athletes career and future contract value still operating? Sounds like such a stuff up.

Think we need to chill out a bit

Ball-magnet Blue to miss R1 after knee injury flares (afl.com.au)

"AFL.com.au understands Newman had reported soreness in the knee he injured last year with early signs revealing inflammation behind the kneecap.

Newman was due to meet with specialists on Monday morning to establish the next course of action and to determine how much training he will miss."

I don't often take Stevo too seriously but now Cleary is going with it I'll accept it's true. Now just have to wait to see how significant the 'setback' is; a few weeks or few months or...

Have we had a secondary/real confirmation about the Gov hamstring?
Not that I’m aware of, be nice if that one was false...
