midfielders "outworked and out hunted around the ball". What a load of rubbish, the poor bastards do nothing but work. Sloane is playing injured, but you could never accuse him if not working hard, so we're half a man down to start with in an extremely shallow midfield. Give them a chance VB you clown, get more players rotating through there.

Excellent. Once Crouch is back we won’t have to bother with Shoe, Berry or anyone else in the middle apart from Sloane, Laird, Keays and Crouch.

Only hope is that Crouch returning sees Sloane off to surgery. Otherwise, yep, 4 x 80% TOG is more than 3 full midfield units. No need for anyone else to get a single minute in there.

Rory Sloane, Lachlan Murphy injury updates are positive for resurgent Adelaide Crows
When Lachlan Murphy limped off late against the Hawks, it took a lot of gloss off Adelaide’s victory. Here’s the latest prognosis on the same ankle he had surgery on earlier in the season.
Adelaide small forward Lachlan Murphy’s ankle is structurally fine, in a boost to the Crows.
Murphy had to be subbed out in the final quarter of the Crows’ win over Hawthorn after injuring his ankle in the third quarter at Marvel Stadium.
The small forward had to have surgery on a syndesmosis injury earlier this year and the knock against the Hawks came on the same ankle.
“Lachie has irritated his right ankle which is the one he had surgery on earlier in the season,” Adelaide head of player health and performance rehabilitation Tim Parham said after the game.
“There was an incident in the third quarter where he experienced both joint and bone pain.
“He was able to continue playing until another incident in the final term which caused the situation with his ankle to further deteriorate and he was in turn substituted.”
But on Sunday Murphy’s ankle was found to be structurally fine.
The small forward still may have a scan on Monday depending on how the injury settles.
Adelaide captain Rory Sloane has been cleared of any damage to his eye after it was poked in the last quarter.
It was not the eye that Sloane required surgery on earlier this year.

I see Pedlar and Himmelberg are set for shoulder reconstructions. Will be running 6 weeks after. When does pre season start?

Not sure why they didn't get Pedlar in straight away after being ruled out with an ankle? Maybe needed to wait for that to settle?

Yeah, would make crutches difficult I guess.

So according to this report, we have Pedlar in for shoulder reconstruction this month and Himmelberg next month.
Why the wait?
Surely you get it done pronto to not delay their start to preseason.

You do realise that was posted in August?
