Missing in Action: Injuries ahead of Rd 11

It has been a huge few days for injuries (and other things that will have players out). Most teams would have been hit by one injury or another over the weekend. Well, if you didn’t have the Michael Barlow injury, then you have issues I’m afraid!

So here are some tidbits that have some Dream Team relevance:

  • News is good for the aforementioned Michael Barlow. He completed an extensive fitness test today (along with Alex Silvagni). Both players are expected to play this week.
  • Not fantasy relevant (unless you are a spud coach like me), but Robbie Gray‘s back/hamstring/fucked body will have him out for another couple of weeks. Go and get fucked you prick. Way to continue fuck my already fucked season.
  • Cameron Hitchcock injured his shoulder on the weekend (and only managed 20 points before doing it)… but is listed as a test. Not a bad thing when it looked much worse than that.
  • From the injury list below, we see that Luke Shuey is back to 1-2 weeks again… for a virus this time. Oh my god! Can’t wait for my 8th midfielder to start playing again!
