    Knights not listed?

      Cwaigy said during the week that it wasn’t too bad, they only pulled him off after the first half last week as a precaution.

    Interesting to see scullery there. Think it might be a cover to stop him playing with the team due to his potential defect to the giants.

      I thought it was pretty well documented that he was injured.

      Although C. Morton seemed stumped by the question on the weekend haha.

    Add Malceski to that list. He has done his knee.

    Good to see Knights is okay, now he has a chance of earning a spot back in my side.

      how bad a knee?

      March 3, 2011 at 8:46 pm

      Ouchhh-12 weeks!! Not that I had him but a few teams will require restructuring no doubt. And so the big name injuries begin….

        March 3, 2011 at 9:11 pm

        Yeah pretty bad. He will have lars surgery again.

      March 3, 2011 at 9:09 pm

      Maybe Malceski will again be another good cheap target come 2012

    The selection that will be playing on my mind right up to lock out:

    “star forward Paul Chapman is no certainty to play before round one due to a minor groin complaint.
    The club yesterday revealed Chapman was suffering groin soreness, having previously been restricted over the summer by a niggling calf injury”

    How have these niggles impacted on his pre-season? Will he line up in round 1? If he does play will he be eased in, thus making him a candidate for use as a substitute player?

    Anyone know what’s going on with Ben Jacobs from Power. Listed as glandular fever – indefinite. Was a good possible rookie pick. Averaged over 25 possesionsin TAC and U18 champs. Might not play for a while. May be a late starter to the season.

    At least Lake hasn’t picked up a fourth injury….

    I was really looking forward to getting some Dick this year. Does anyone reckon he’s best 22 when fit? Been reading the pies board and they can’t seem to agree. At some point soon that Dick is going to explode I’m telling you….

    • Avatar


      March 4, 2011 at 12:32 pm

      I agree. I think he’ll be more useful once he hardens up

        Mr Magoo

        March 4, 2011 at 12:46 pm

        Definitely. Once he gets used to performing in front of a crowd, he’ll harden up and then explode you mark my words….

          If he comes to play too early though he will be a let down

            March 8, 2011 at 11:53 am

            He fits in well alongside goldsack and sidebottom too

      March 4, 2011 at 4:04 pm

      Mate when he is fit he is in our best 18. I’m telling you if he gets his body right he will soon become one of the best small forwards in the game! Read my Collingwood article, I did a little bit about him. He was my smokie but he probably doesn’t have a chance of making my side unless he plays next week. He is a GUN though. One of my favourite players.

    Hehehe the Dick has issues. Lacking confidence cos not performing and too worried about getting injured.4 major injuries to date. Will spend time in the vfl to rebuild. Expect return to form by rnd 10.

    We still get part of the story. The Cats web site talks about Chappy as being out with a calf injury but don’t say boo about him here.

    Also what has happened to Billy Smedts? Not a mention in the NAB games, nothing on the Cats web site and norhing on any if the injury sites or here. Has he been lost in the post?

      Bye bye Ian Callinan

      “The practice match is turning into a nightmare for the Crows, with mature-age recruit Ian Callinan out for 6-10 weeks after ripping his bicep off the bone. Kurt Tippet was also injured in the opening minutes”.

        Ricky Henderson of the Crows was also injured.

      Negative: Miss out on a rare rookie priced player likely to play round 1 and score well

      Positive: Going to be a great downgrade target at about week 11 or whenever he can fit back into the lineup

          If you’re like me and had minimum spare cash floating around, you will have to make a few changes to free up the cash. If your just looking for a forward rook, I would say in order of importance:

          Krakouer, Mzungu, Matera, Richardson and Prestia.

          If you have some of those on your midfield bench then the next few players I would consider at this stage would be:

          Smith, McKernan, Michie and Darling

            Daniel Talia must come into contention now as well, especially if Martin is a long term injury

      bugger…feel sorry for the ol’ geezer. Oh well, looks like Prestia back in my team.

    And they got a 4th injury in the 2nd half…Brodie Martin…poor crows!

    “The club confirmed that Martin would have scans on the same knee he injured last season, with a spokesman noting that the injury “did not look good”.”

    Could have been worse…I could have lost Knights on top of Martin and Callinan from my lineup -_-
