AFL360 did a whole segment on the Saints and their injury woes “rnd 18 sort of injury list for saints” I count 15 which is equal if not more than the saints. Hold on to your preseason hopes ladies and gents it’s gonna be a long year.

So, out of our usual starting 22 from last year, I have about half of them will be lining up for Round 1 with a good couple of months of injury free pre-season.
Please correct me if I'm missing anything;
1 Hayden Ballantyne
5 Adam Cerra
8 Andrew Brayshaw
14 Nathan Wilson
16 David Mundy
18 Darcy Tucker
21 Joel Hamling
25 Alex Pearce
26 Ed Langdon
38 Luke Ryan
41 Bailey Banfield

And furthermore, by my calculations, Mundy and Walters will be the only 2 Freo players likely playing in Round 1 2019 who have played >75% of the 66 available Home and Away games for Freo since Round 1 2016.

(EDIT: NB: S.Hill is the only other Freo player who has played more than 75% of available games in the last 3 seasons. In comparison, West Coast have 14 players and I believe 12 of them will likely line up in Round 1 of 2019.)

On the bright side the injuries barring Blakely, Hill, Sandi and Bennell are all short term (fingers crossed for Cox) so IF (MASSIVE if, but still) we have no injuries in the first few rounds we should be pretty close to full strength come rd 2 or 3

The official injury update page has just changed from last weeks to this:

Fremantle will provide an injury update in the lead up to the 2019 season

I wouldn't be holding my breath on updates until around this time next week

It’s about time the bookies started offering a over/under for injury lists

One way to find a bright side to all this would be taking those buggers to the cleaners

Far out, I blame myself. I asked via Twitter why we had so many TBC's.

Glad we longer have an TBC's :)

Another injury that went unbeknown. RTB had a knee replacement earlier this year!

Think he got his wires crossed during the re-wiring (not rebuild).

Belly: “Ross! You need to improve or be replaced!”

RTB: “Yeah no worries! I’ll book in for a knee replacement!” <walks off scratching his head>

West reporting a month for cox, 3 weeks for tabs - direct from ross
What a genius strength and conditioning department. Tabs unnecessarily injured in a WAFL warm up. Cox injured in the first 15 minutes of a JLT game.
In comes McCarthy, with absolutely no confidence.

What a forward line it ll be

HF: Ballas, Lobb, Walters
FF: Banfield, Hogan, McCarthy
