  1. Just as Carlton can’t grasp when they need to have their injury updates submitted. Laidler dislocated his knee again in the Magoos last week and has now undergone season ending surgery. He tweeted from his hospital bed very early this morning. Thankfully it wasn’t about someone’s mum and a sexually transmitted disease.


  2. Did anyone else pick up from the injury list above that the Hawks ruck crisis is not far from clearing. Hale & Roughie SC scores have certainly benefited from Broc McCauley & Max Bailey being out injured. I have Hale & was considering Roughie this week, however McCauley being ‘test’ & Bailey ‘2-4 weeks’ is not great considering Hawks have some easy games coming up & McCauley could come back via AFL rather than VFL.
