I just want to inform my fellow SCT-aholics that I was lucky enough to get along to the the Macca’s ‘Think you’re a good Sport’ program run during the week, and from a SC perspective, I can tell you that Buddy will definitely be out for a few weeks 3-minimum. He did come to the event, but could hardly walk. He had a massive limp walking around and a club condition of attending was that he could only stand for 10 mins at a time….. so spent most of his time sitting signing autographs. I’d be surprised if he’s back within 4 based on his limp and obvious pain when walking. If you’re thinking/hoping he’ll be back early – forget it!
On the Murph front, I know he’s been named but his injury was a little better hidden, and we spoke to him he said he needed to pass a fitness test, but I’d also suggest he may be a late withdrawal.
Lastly, Pendlebury was supposed to be the third player in attendance, but was unable to attend ‘due to injury’ so a little surprised he was named, as J Roo was a last minute substitute for Pendles.
Anyway, take from this what you like, but I can state for fact that Buddy is in trouble and have no idea what the Hawks were thinking playing him last week.
Here’s a couple of picks:
