Doc, is there a chance he made it worse when he attempted a tackle on the way off the ground?
Just watched the last 3 minutes again. Govs limping effort at a tackle indicated the tear was significant. Damage was already done. Sux, he was looking good.

Strangely, I am fairly optimistic about Charlie and to a lesser extent, Marchbank.

Although he's missed so much football, Caleb doing his ACL is not a disastrous thing. Misses effectively 2-3 years, but I'm considering it a case of him being disintegrated (allow his co-existing injuries to be optimised), and if rebuilt correctly (a long shot), may yet have a career.

This really is his last attempt, though, approaching 25. Aim for round 1 next year.

The concern with McGovern is the continual soft tissue injuries, at the age of 26. That's bad.
Didn’t Treloar do some hammys he seams to be going alright

I think it's still a thing but a lot of surgeons don't like doing them.
I thought it got phased out after they discovered that new tiny ligament in the knee a couple years ago - tiny thing that was responsible for helping to attach the acl. It not healing properly has been attributed to people re-doing their acls.

Gov has hardly had a significant impact since coming across. His absence can easily be accounted for with JSOS in.
I wont be relying too much on JSOS for marks with the bung shoulder......i also predict, dont want it to happen but think it will, that JSOS has a shoulder reconstruction within a month.
