Moore played 8 games in a row at the start of the year, then 5 in a period just after that. That wasn’t that long ago.

Who are you to say he can’t string together 3 more? Its not that outlandish of a thought. You’re welcome to come and join the rest of us in reality sometime soon.
Time will tell, and I hope I'm wrong.

To be fair, Moore leaving the field despite scans showing no injury isn’t the greatest of signs.

I’d argue it speaks to his mental state about his injury history and his lack of confidence in his own body.

Fingers crossed he was just being ridiculously cautious knowing finals and a week off were coming up.

I think he felt tightness, which can be easily mistaken for a slight strain. Zorko did something similar not long ago.

No doubt he has some mental hurdles to overcome. But, we shouldn’t sit here pretending to know whats going on inside his head. Because really we have no idea

Didn't he feel tightness and the medical staff told him to not take risks and sit out rest of game.?

Maybe after missing out on finals last year he was doubly determined not to let it happen again. After all he did put in good work over the summer so not getting a taste of finals would mean a waste of that effort and he would want to help out his teammates.

Anyway, Frank is right in that finals go up a notch and there is no guarantee he will get through three games if we're lucky enough to play through to the GF. We have a few others as well with concersn.

And Mooresome is right, he felt tightness, the medicos thought there were no signs of a strain but advised him to sit the rest of the final quarter out.

I’d be quite optimistic psychological issues can be addressed far more effectively than repeatedly rehabbing torn hamstrings.

Without the benefit of the crystal ball that none of us own, I can 100% guarantee one thing. If we have Darcy on field in beast mode, intercept marking everything and running out of our backline, Collingwood is an infinitely better team. Here’s to Darcy making the 2019 finals series his bitch.

Haha thanks mate. But I think all of us would realise we have a very special player in Moore. His 4th quarter was superb.
Yes, I heard discussion after the game from various comms and they were lauding him as a rare talent and such an athlete.
