  • Cheers boys, good work again. Sam Jacobs is a blow…. And now having second thoughts about Bartel.

    Also, liked the use of Dean Cox in the Injury List image… Cheeky.

    • Bartel will play Round 4 of nab cup and will be ok for Round 1 (according to :)

      • more worried about his conditioning… but he’s such a gun, it really shouldnt be a problem.

    • Jimmy will be fine, he’s done all of the conditioning work to date and normally only plays three of the four preseason games anyway. He won’t forget how to win the ball.

  • Man, I swear this list looks really familier from somehwere! :P

  • Hmmm not much to worry about there!

    Thanks guys, I got my stubby holders today! :)

  • A or B

    a. pav and anthony

    b. knights and montagna

  • I noticed the Tigers have not picked Deledio.

    Did not play last week but is not named on the injured list.

  • Nathan Lovett-Murray (1 week for calf). Any thoughts on picking him as a DT defender this year? Injured last year but played 12 games and averaged 90.5. Injury free i reckon he could be a unique pick.

  • Thoughts on conca from richmond or are there better options? keep in mind that i already have swallow, gaff, harris, mzungu, Krakouer, calinan and heppel who can all be selected as rookies in the mids for me.

  • Just an observation… but why so many achilles injuries? (Hodge, Bolten, McIntosh, Campbell, Charman) I don’t recall this being a common injury before… Could this be the new gerneral soreness?

    I’m a little worried about Hodge given the others have 4-6 weeks or indefinite next to their names…

    • If it is high in the achilles, it could well be calf soreness, which I think you will see less of during the season, I think it is the pre-season equivalent of The General, as you say… That said, 3 of those (Bolton, Charman and Campbell) are ongoing injuries from last year, and are all legit achilles problems. Mcintosh I have no idea about though. And Splodge will be ok in the early rounds of home and away, if not before

      • Thanks Axis – I hope you’re right !

        I just noticed that Hodgy’s injury timeframe has been increased to 2-3 weeks…

  • round six is the only round that i now have an bye issue with think im going to have to cop one forward 0 not happy but happy enough…then again still 29 days till bounce down so more issues will arise id say

  • Whats up at Hawthorn. All their players are TBA. Their medicos cant be up to scratch if they cant get round to ‘assessing’ their players.

    • Its probably the equivalent of what is normally listed as ‘test’ meaning they are pretty much good to go, but they need to be assessed closer to the day to see if they’re ready to play/train again

  • In the AFL article about Bartel’s tonsilitis, there is another comment about Chappie battling a calf strain.


    “…and Paul Chapman is battling a calf strain.”

    But he ain’t listed in the injury list…anyone know more about that?

    • Thats because he was supposed to play last week, he was named in the squad and was there on the day, but his calf was giving him the shits so they put him in cotton wool, he’s not really injured, but as long as his calf is even stiff, Geelong won’t risk him in the pre-season

  • For those dream team masters out there, join the DT Talk Masters league!
    Code: 520649

  • So a lot of people’s smokie, Levi Greenwood is out for 7…… could Richardson get a bit of a run through the middle?
    Kangas are the walking wounded- any1 know the extent of Zeibels spine injury?
    Did Atley cop a knock last week?He didn’t impress.
