Like Dunstan, Hunter had some good numbers per minute of game time.

Only played 59% of the game, yet had 8 CP's (out of his 15 possies), 4 clearances (equal-3rd most for us), 5 tackles and marks, 4 intercept possessions, a goal, and a very healthy 54 pressure points (3rd for us, and 4th-most on the ground).

Roma also very impressive pressure numbers. 6 tackles and 52 pressure points (4th for us, 5th on ground).

Woken up to the Paddy Robbo news. Not good, not good at all. I’ve not been worried by any injuries lately, but this has startled me a bit. The Robbo one resonates with me because I had a pacemaker inserted four years ago due to heart failure. I certainly had moments of feeling wonky before I got it. Due to low blood pressure and blood not getting to the noggin.

Can only think Robbo has erratic heart beat, and when it gets low he has trouble. I do not have trouble now as drugs and my device are godsends. But playing elite sport is another thing. Really hope for him. He has been terrific to have back, but has a young family so footy not the most important thing. Fingers crossed for both boys.

It doesn't matter if contact is trivial or not if you're going back with the flight and not looking at the ball. If you make any body contact at all and they see it, they pay it.

Paddy probably figured he'd either mark it or get a free, but he really needed to crunch Daniel with his knee in that instance.

As for the lop-sided count, frees inside F50 were a whopping 9 to them and 2 for us!
Yeah, by the way I was saying I thought it was technically a free kick - just that it was contact that was barely noticeable and so the free kick was just barely there. Probably gave the wrong idea by saying trivial.
As for the free kick count, it was frustrating but a lot of them I thought were actually there. I didn't actually think the umpiring was terrible on the day. Frustrating, but not terrible.

And we won despite the count, so there’s a positive.

I’m not sure about those stats. Two frees to Paddy and one to Sinclair for goals. All well within 50.

Brother both are ok from the text I got 5 minutes ago from a club volunteer.

Super cautious as you can imagine.

Good stuff Stavro. Thanks for passing on the news. I did see Tony74 say on SS last night that things were ok and Paddy's main concern was a corked bum(!!), but you never know. Cheers.

Considering she was at the club today and gets to speak to the likes of Finnis and leathlan on a daily basis then I trust her.
No doubt. They always tell no paid people that sort of information especially before they get final results. I’ve got to be honest and say I don’t even think the players would know yet. And I’m not doubting you got a text

I would be very confident that if supporters saw for example Richo they would let them know if the player is ok.

No it’s the specialists who aren’t employed by the club. The club, even our doctors, don’t have that skill
Gangnam Saint is correct plugger.
The club has a legal obligation to their players.
Occupational Health and Safety.
Ultimately, it will be the club’s call.
Based on what inputs are provided by specialists, consultants, employees, Paddy and his family and management.
But the decision to employ Paddy is the club’s.

My guess is the conversation would have gone something like this. She says how are they. They say hopefully everything is ok. We kept them in hospital for precautionary reasons. In others words we will find out more soon. They don’t even the results yet according to leathlean.

No the decision to play is surely made by the player. The club provide all the information they can. Obviously if the information says he will end up in a wheel chair if he plays they wouldn’t pick him but if everything points to being ok then the player says yes or no. That’s why some retire and others don’t.

That's really great/relieving news for the boys and their families and the club Stavro.

My heart sank last night when I heard what happened to them both.....it sank even further when I read this morning that both were in hospital last night for observation......my mind went straight into "worse case scenario"

When I read about Robbo last night....my mind flashed back to watching him and his 3 kids on the oval after the intra a few weeks back.....I thought last night if there's the slightest doubt on things.....give it way for yrs and your families sake.

I thought the same thing when Rooey was knocked out back in 2017.

I guess we'll have to wait what the official prognosis is for both of them.

You are entitled to your 'guess'

My guess is Lethers showed her the doctors reports that said both will play 22 h&a games and be co Brownlow medallists.

But like you, just a guess.
