Wouldn’t risk him. They showed on Friday night it doesn’t break them to lose a single player like him. Rather have 22 players you’re confident will be their in the last quarter.
I wonder if Wayne Carey and Tim Watson still believe DeGoey is more important to Collingwood than Grundy :drunk:

Nowhere near it. Their forward line has a lot of different options and threats. Elliott is playing well and Stephenson is back. They can cover him as they showed on Friday.

Going into a GF off one quarter of footy in 8 weeks and a suspect recurring hammy? Massive risk.

Yeh, history is the best educator and when it comes to this particular sport, the risk very rarely pays off.

yeh I agree. He's a gamechanger, especially in a GF.
I think Richmond will win the flag regardless, and De Goey is a great player, but this is overly dramatic.

It's not like he is Leigh Matthews or Michael Voss and structurally his loss impacts us less than if he played for pretty much any other side.

I'd be curious to know what a world-leading expert can actually do to make a soft tissue injury heal quicker. Hopefully the flight itself doesn't exacerbate the issues.

De Goey is that good I'd spend a few grand desperately trying to get him up for a final as well.

The biggest issue for him is going to be his explosive speed off the mark, if he’s not 100% the intensity of a GF will be too high risk, and would the Pies risk losing a man in the first minute of a GF?

Good luck to him-hope it works- finals are more to fun to watch with players like him in them. Dr in Germany fixed Max Rooke’s hammy.
