  1. Bombers injury list trimming! Good news for all…except Carlton…who may play their ‘bogey’ side in round 1 of the finals ๐Ÿ˜‰


  2. Definitely agree RB. I currently have a bet with a mate that Essendon will finish higher on the ladder than Carlton so IF we can get there and THEN beat them it would make my year.
    FYI- the bet is: a bottle of Glenfeddich 21 yr old scotch and the loser has to wear the others supporter jumper and have a picture taken for facebook distribution. Considering how much I hate Carlton and vice versa I would rather die that have that thrown around.


  3. ADELAIDE will not consider club champion Richard Douglas, elevated rookie Ian Callinan nor key forward Kurt Tippett for Sunday’s clash against Geelong.

    But half-forward Chris Knights, who carried a hip injury out of Sunday’s five-point win over Brisbane at the Gabba, is still in caretaker coach Mark Bickley’s planning.

    Callinan (hamstring) and Douglas (ankle) are expected to make their comebacks through the SANFL.

    Tippett (hamstring), however, will be held back as part of Adelaide’s cautious approach to his rehabilitation from injury.

    The Crows, looking for their third consecutive win under Bickley, will be forced to name a provisional 25-man line-up at 5pm on Thursday, when the caretaker coach will lead a definitiveย  training session under lights at AAMI Stadium.
