Bone stress in the back doesn't sound good.
Sven inc. or anyone in the know care to elaborate please.

Dr Google says it just takes 6-12 weeks rest before the sufferer can resume their usual sporting activities. In that sense it doesn't seem so bad. It appears to be a complaint caused by repetition, and I guess (with no medical knowledge to support this!) that a kid who is taller and thinner might be more at risk. Hopefully it is not a structural thing for him and this is a once-off as he adapts to the training load. But I am just speculating on that.

Terrible news. Was really looking forward to watching him play at Box Hill.

I think Sicily, Phillips and Scrimshaw need to start sacrificing a goat or something, if you're a KPD or likely to play KPD then you're cursed.

This one hurts. He may not be in the Hawks plans this years but for me, Will McCabe’s development is the harbinger of the Hawks renaissance. This horrible news sets our best team in 2025/6 back 3 months.

Well picked up by the medicos. Get him right!
All good Alite

Setting a 1st year player back 3 months in 2024 (before they've even played an intra-club scratchie) doesn't even affect 2024, let alone 2025/6.

We're golden - you'll still get to see your seven-peat - just don't make any plans in September (like forever)

Is it going to effect my dreams and hopes of a thirty-five peat?

The good news is we will be able to put our best team out in the field every single week in 2025/26 - with no pesky injuries. Am I right?

Unfortunately in 2025/26 we will only be rolling out the best ankles to play…
