*sigh*

Time to roll out this thread for the annual heartbreak and anguish.

Lobb looks to be down with a medial ligament in the pre-season game. I hope Tabs is taking his vitamins this year...

Lobb is the one bloke we could not afford an injury to. In one fell swoop we are down to 2 rucks and 2 kpfs.

Question without notice: If Lobb has done ACL does that mean we can recruit a player mid-season

That's a textbook ACL mechanism of injury. Typically MCLs are a direct contact to the leg injury, not a body weight shift into valgus. If there's enough hamstring tone/activity the ACL test won't be accurate anyway. Rory, and the team, will be exceptionally lucky if he's escaped with an injury to the medial ligament alone.

Logue was reported as having a minor hamstring injury on 20 Jan.
That’s 2 months from round 1 and he doesn’t appear to be anywhere near a return based on Jlo comments, certainly not by round 1 anyway. Must not gave been that minor or else he just takes longer to recover than most.

Dont think thats a bad thing. Last season Hamling and Pearce didnt play 1 game of 2020, Logue only played 4 games. So a combined 4 games from out 3 best tall defenders.

Hamling and Pearce are not injured. Cox played in the pre season derby.

Lobb fumbles the ball coming in, gets tackled by Cole.
Lobb doesn't fumble the ball coming in, doesn't get tackled.
The dude is on $770k/$800k a year, and really on that coin should be a one touch player.
Meh, he's had one good season for us, his first, since then ordinary

He's had two good seasons in his whole career. Severely overrated because of contested marks on the wing (where he is legitimately A+) but little else to his game other than being a decent number 2 ruck.

If we don't win a flag with this group, 100% the retrospective will be Hogan and Lobb vs King and Rozee.

boil it down ever further and those decisions relate to Rosich, Harris and Lyon. Lyon should never have been extended for 5 years. We’d hit our pinnacle early 2015, all and sundry could see a slide. Our late season form in 2015 was horrendous. It just couldn’t click. 2016 IMO was predictable and the decision to extend Lyon, and then find saviors via the trade table is what bit us. Need a long term approach. The draft is key, trading is almost never the answer.
