Anyone know if Kelly and De Boer trained on Tuesday?

Hopefully they were fit and right to go but just a bit of precaution with it being a Friday game and miserable weather conditions to play in

Yeah I'd go 1 ruck, especially with McEvoy out. Play someone like Bonar deep fwd who can pluck a pack mark but still provide pressure. Keefe will do as second ruck/fwd, just not sure which of those emergencies you would bring in, would like a mid but Caldwell is the only option.

Bloody hell this is ridiculous!!!

HH is listed as a calf. That is terrible news as they are usually 3-4 weeks

Hang on. They were not listed in the injury report were they ?

Maybe this is a bit of genius masterstroke as it is going to be wet and windy so we going small and giving HH and JF their last break before finals.

However this is just me hoping but the injuries always seem to end up worse than first thought.

Really can't afford to lose them for finals

Almost certain this is the case. HH has played every game this season. Has had some niggles lately during games.

The email article said Finalyson was a hamstring, Himmelberg was a calf, and de Boer and Kelly are certainties for next week - being held out this week as a precaution.

But basically we're f’ed this week.

Well I can accept a loss this week of we are going to have all these injured players back well rested (over their "injuries")

With the weather the way it is it should be a dour slog which we may steal.

No way are we or should be favorites considering the outs. Still think Jezza will also end up being rested.

Great. I’ll enjoy sitting in the outer getting (possibly) hailed on, in 3 degree weather watching the team get pumped by an undermanned, young Hawk team.
Or we’ll rise to the occasion and thump them.

I'll be on a plane for the majority of the match. Saves me stressing about it.

It looks to be a dirty night. It won’t favour either team then.
Giants by 2 late goals, just to keep everyone’s hearts going.
