I would go with Rotham first chance for Duggan. If he does poor then Cole comes in. This is very good news for Nelson as he's almost guaranteed to play out the year at afl level

Healing from a high ankle sprain can take anywhere from six weeks to three months — sometimes even more. Healing time depends on how badly you've injured the soft tissue and if there was any bone damage.

Not good for Duggan. 5-6 weeks off his ankle, then rehab, recovery, general fitness, strengthening then match conditioning. If we see him back this year we'll have to change his name from Liam to Lazarus.

Disappointed for Duggo but at least there'll be an opportunity for Schoey or Cole. There might even be a chance Watson could debut in the coming weeks.

I'm pretty sure the quoted times are until they're ready to play again, not how long they can't train etc.

Damn, he's become pretty reliable has Duggo. Very replaceable at this point in his career but any small/medium that we bring in for him still has question marks on some part of their game.

Losing more mongrel from our side is disappointing. Head says bring in Rotham, heart says bring in Cole.

Yes the surface is harder from the start of the season compared to now but 5-6 weeks ago the WAFL state game players were saying they have never played on a harder surface and over a period of time playing on the harder surface your going to be more susceptible to the ankle injuries .

I'm becoming paranoid about it now so many lower leg injuries .

Bummer, and we were heading into the business end of the season with almost a zero injury list. Steadiness and continuation of the defensive six is just so important nowadays. Personally, I would like the MC to be brave enough to bring in Watson in the meantime.
