Ben Cameron on Sportsday WA last night said he has heard that Nic’s recovery is going so well that internally the club believes it could be round 3/4. But is maintaining a round 10 return in public.

Doubt we'd rush him back by Round 3 or 4. Round 10 seems most likely. Want to get the miles and confidence in his legs. Pre-season starts now for him essentially.

Expecting round 8-9.

Yeah, I kind of cringed a bit when I heard that, round 3/4 sounds pretty bloody early, I hope the club / Nic goes easy and won’t rush it. But I think every WC supporter will have their heart in their mouth any time Nic jumps when he returns.

Two other ruckment would agree with you
He would be interesting strating in the square at bounces?

That still isn't the official WC injury list.

When round 1 comes around they do a pretty decent one.

Even if Nic Nat comes back round 14-18 that is pretty much 12 months so if that is worse case than that is a win still.

Gives him plenty of time to get fit for finals.

'S fine. Get Cripps and JK ready for the Giants at home.

The Lions cant go with either our backs or midfield. Jackie-boy to lead the Coleman at the end of round one with a bag of 6 in a 30pt clinic.

So Kennedy, Cripps and now Rioli are out of the side with foot/toe problems.

Barrass and Yeo have just recovered from similar injuries.

But there's nothing wrong with the surface at Optus right?
