You never cheer for injuries but this is obviously good news for us given we have a home QClash coming up in three weeks from now.Neale out 8 weeks ankle injury
They will be without Neale and Rayner for the match against us. Both of those guys have performed well against us in the past so our midfielders will have a much easier time getting their hands on the ball this time around. The main guy we have to worry about in the midfield is McCluggage because he's in career best form, and to a lesser degree Lyons/Zorko. Far less daunting task than it has been in the past!
I would have thought Port Adelaide will beat Brisbane pretty comfortably without Neale this weekend and then the Lions have a long trip to Perth the following to face what now looks like a tough Dockers outfit. So their form could be very questionable going into the QClash off a 6 day break following a long away trip, whereas we've got the struggling Pies at the MCG and Saints at home in our next two fixtures as well as a full 7 day break between the Saints and Lions games. Only having to travel once to Melbourne between now and the QClash is obviously advantageous as well. It's a good time to get back-to-back home fixtures.
Seems like a few things are starting to fall in our favour to go on a run and get some wins on the board!
