The majority of our squad comes back from their end of season break in reasonable condition, some players spend a while getting the skinfolds and running power back in line after what I presume is pouring in drinks and sitting down for a month.
That's fine coming back from a break to say that. But Cox is supposed to be injured and should have been in rehab but he's not.

So you're hoping he comes back from his ban in top condition?

When he goes away for his end of season break I hope he comes back in better condition.

Injuries have consistently derailed our season and consistently Freo have done nothing about it.
It's been on the agenda season after season but nothing changes.
It's bloody so infuriating, its a coach and supporter killer.
Ffs Freo do something, anything but fix the problem.

They could hire someone to act as program oversight, pay them $10,000 for the use of their name and it would buy the breathing room until next season.

Apparently if what others are saying about someone banned from training, it could well be him.🤔
Around this time he still appeared at the games (not in a playing capacity due to the "injury").

You would expect that it would be a total exile if he was banned.

Mhm. If that shoulder is going to be loose for next year and potentially pop out repeatedly then maybe the bone graft op now will have him back for next year.

Cox hasn’t been banned. Webber and Bell have referenced Cox in the last couple of injury reports. Taylor is just saying he needs to present back to pre-season in good nick. He is a bit of a lad and can’t afford him playing catch-up aka Mitch McGovern Style.

I’m with Walkingwounded - if anyone was banned is was Shane Kersten. Been MIA for ages and no sign of him at training.

All I know is that the medical staff has done darn good work on Joel Hamling’s shoulders, ................. he’s been carrying the backline (most of the season) on his shoulders.

What a year it's been for the development of Sturt and Valente. Didn't Fyfe predict Valente would win a Rising Star? I guess he didn't specify it would be in 2019.

Though Collingwood and Essendon (rich clubs with terrible lists) on one hand, and Brisbane on the other hand, seem to suggest a poor correlation between money and successful injury management.

No not Kersten, he actually was injured. The banned player had been playing. I don't care if the club wants to keep it quiet if they finally did something about the bad behaviour that goes on. Called out pubically last year with Neale then Hogan this year.

One thing missing. Luck. That’s 80% of it. You can prepare, prevent but cannot predict what could happen on the day.

West coast riding it big time. Not having lower leg problems or knees, is just undoubtedly lucky.
