I read in yesterday's Hun that Tarrant is having treatment for a foot issue called "Morton's Neuroma" , I am not a medical expert, but anything that ends with 'oma raises alarm bells for me, anyone here know much about it ?
Cortizone should fix it, rest for 10 days after the shot, if it works good to go.

Wow, that injury list. Have we been training on a concrete road?

If those guys do miss round 1 the saints are a real threat.
They’re a threat no matter how many guys we have injured. They recruited really well and have a solid off field coaching team.

That said, we we play the brand Shaw had us playing when we smashed the Tigers & Pies we should win comfortably.

Just bash them. Go full Toby Greene

Nothing major. It's an irritated sensory nerve that runs on the bottom of the foot towards the toes. It can sometimes get inflamed or trapped, and causes shooting pains to the toes or webspace between toes. Can also cause a pins and needles feeling or numbness. Treatment is usually massage, adjusting footwear, cortisone or local anaesthetic injections or minor surgery. The nerve doesn't control any muscles, so movement isn't affected.

My memory is a little hazy, as the last time I injected one was during a brief term in orthopaedics I did 20 years ago, but I doubt much has changed.

I think being struck down with an ailment named after Morton is a bigger concern.
