Mummy is a living legend, but surely this is a bridge too far and a reckless gamble with his health.
The only scenario in which this possibly makes sense to me is if we have literally no Ruck available to play VFL and he plays as an emergency.
In 2022 our three listed Rucks must be able to cover all AFL fixtures.

Some funny takes in that article, haha
Meanwhile, draftee Josh Fahey suffered a minor shoulder injury at training last week.Any news on Josh Fahey? He doesn't seem to be on any injury list, yet has not kitted up yet this season..
Have they stopped listing the injured players a length of injury so they don’t have to keep lying to us?Relatively good news on Haynes
“Nick saw a specialist on Monday and has been cleared of any major damage and doesn’t require surgery on his ankle. We’ll need to see how he responds to treatment and he’ll undergo a fitness test later this week.”
|Conor Stone||Hamstring||1-3 weeks|
|Zach Sproule||Shoulder||3 weeks|
|Brent Daniels||Foot||3-5 weeks|
|Daniel Lloyd||Arm||6-8 weeks|
|Jacob Hopper||Knee||2-3 months|
|Phil Davis||Hamstring||2-3 months|
|Jack Buckley||Knee||3-4 months|
No mention of Whitfield despite the coach speaking about his injury at length in the presser?

At least we've now got a timeline on Hopper.
But let's look of the positives of those that are out the team currently. With Hopper out Tom Green has spent more time in the midfield and has shown the coaching staff he is now our most important player for the next 12 + years.Hardly fringe players out however.
