Yeah, it's a shame; but they are looking at his long career, rather than the short term. Looks like Weller could be right to play this weekend.

Weller and Hanley look good to go this weekend.

Corey Ellis will also be a decent return for the NEAFL team against Aspley.

Young had a knee knock may explain his limited impact against the Eagles.

Rankine 4 - 6 weeks hurts, but given that will include the bye. I reckon he will have a decent run at the 2nd half of the season.

That sucks
We needed him playing and loving football up on the Coast.
All this time doing rehab will be hard

The rankine news sucks but it’s in some ways a good thing - last thing we need is another entitled player who thinks the club revolves around him.

It’s good for the rest of the squad to prove their worth as a team, not feel like they’re reliant on one player to come in and save the day

Nnnoooooo this can’t be happening :coldsweat::coldsweat::coldsweat::coldsweat::coldsweat:
Why am I getting a Harley (minus the cocaine) vibe with Izak.
Er, whaaaat!?!


It's a hammy. He doesn't have a history of such injuries.

We've something similar going on with one of our young players. It happens.

Clearly no sense of humour north of Beenleigh. I’ll add a wink next time.

He’s got a history of 2 hammies now. All histories have a beginning.
Our history is littered with our very talented young players who’ve got injured and we’ve never been able to see the best of.

Hi team - what's the story with my man The Greatest Fantasy Footy Unique There Is Brayden Fiorini?

Only a week we reckon?

Dreamteam stuff aside, he's the most underrated player in the game. Only thing he needs to tighten up is set shots and he'd be a 25-30 goal a game mid.

According to family member he was touch and go. It looks like it is related to Kennedy putting studs into his leg Green style.

First we've heard about it.
I reckon just a bit sore after playing on the rock hard Optus oval.
I'd like to think he'll be back in a week but we haven't had word from the club yet.

Top 20 in
- kicks
- tackles
- tackles inside 50
- goal assists

pretty solid!

thats nice and all, but considering the proportion outside ball he gets his disposal is terrible. in the last month his DE% is 60%,58%,53%,63% - far below AFL average.
Great for dream team, not so great (but serviceable in absence of other options) for footy team.

With the way AFL is going and how the skills are 63% is not the worst running around. I reckon though, once we get a bit more talent around the group and mature a bit, he will find himself under less pressure.

Tends to use it under pressure, when he gets it outside from what I've seen he's pretty clean.

one of those games i listed above he had 23 uncontested possessions, and still only went at 63%...
given that was his BEST DE% in the month i looked at, its not far off accurate in saying you may as well flip a coin when giving him the ball, as to whether the team will retain possession post his disposal.

I think his outside disposal is very good actually.
Little spot up kicks usually pretty spot on.
I think him being asked to play inside because of our lack of midfield depth is not his strength.
He can offer up a few hack kicks forward.
