Would rather they give him as much time as possible so he’s somewhat fresh for the finals and he can get as much of a preseason in right now.
Yeah true. The teams winning without him, I just hope he gets a few runs before finals to get into the swing of things.

From AFL website, "Only Naitanui and Tom Barrass (foot) remain unavailable from the first-choice line-up, while young forward Daniel Venables is still weeks away after a heavy concussion in the win over Melbourne two rounds ago."

Gee, Venables must have had a huge hit.

A decent injury update in the early parts of the backchat podcast this week from Tommy Booroos.

Players sound worried about Venables, albeit they're trying to talk positively about his recovery. Sounds way off though. Gee not good.

Edwards specific problem is a navicular injury.

Naitanui probably aiming for a week or two after the bye.

Talking up Hammer Brayshaw's professionalism in rehab, which is good considering he lives there.

That dog Ricciuto ended Kemps career with a leaping shirtfront shoulder to the head. Kemp was blindsided and had no idea it was coming, was hit so hard he did a full revolution in the air. I dont know if Ricciuto was suspended but he'd get 10 weeks in todays footy.
It was a disgraceful and gutless hit. I'm not sure he was even suspended for it. These days surely he would have got 4 weeks.
