(as a non-medico) do you think this is a (relatively) positive thing in terms of it's healing but the usual inflammation is causing a bit of trouble so let's tighten this puppy up to get him back out there; or is it more a last ditch effort before we take him out to the back paddock and start up the glue machine?Two screws placed. Possibly compression screws to enhance healing of original fracture.
they should have put in those rubber composite floors there decades ago (the ones they use in the children's play grounds). Would have saved WA some medical $$ over the years. Do they still play 'blister in the sun' every week or have they got a new anthem?
Jesus I just had a flashback to the early 90’sthey should have put in those rubber composite floors there decades ago (the ones they use in the children's play grounds). Would have saved WA some medical $$ over the years. Do they still play 'blister in the sun' every week or have they got a new anthem?
While I'm pretty sure you're just taking the piss yourself, for clarity it doesn't seem to be a "re-injury". When would he have been slated for a return? I'd imagine fractured ankle would involve heaps of potential for complications and long layoffs.
He was there and I spoke him, the players had the weekend off, nothing untoward - just having a good time.sauce? if correct its clarke all over again.
Not too worried about Wilson, as good as he is we have replacements in Aish and Young if needed. Not sure what we do about AP though, our key back stocks are thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin.So our potentially awesome defence could be missing Pearce and Wilson.
And Colyer is injury-free and in contention for a spot in the leadership group?Some info from today...
- Pearce expected to be back playing early in the season (seems unlikely rd 1 now)
- Hogan should hopefully be ready to join main training shortly
- Fyfe is being held back deliberately but will be back into full training post Xmas and primed round 1
- Wilson due back in full training early Feb - doing lots of fitness work atm
- Walters had an injury scare today - limped off and left training early - sounds precautionary though
Pictures on Insta from Sat and he was playing some basketball game against the girls.What's the latest on Dixon. The last thing I read was that he was injured on crutches, or in a boot - that was around draft day 2.
Did cross my mind at the time that it might have been a look the club wanted to put out before the rookie draft.Pictures on Insta from Sat and he was playing some basketball game against the girls.
Also from a training reporter moving freely today in rehab group.
When training hard, bone growth is stimulated and the process is completed during recovery. If their is insufficient recovery time between training sessions and games, stress fractres can occur.Pearce has never played a full season of AFL, not ever.
He's very fragile, I'm very pessimistic on his l/term future
