Injuries Rd 11

Written by Chaos Theory on May 24 2022


Jordan Dawson (burst ear drum) “He will be fine. He copped that whack … and is just a bit sore and blocked up.” Brodie Smith

Josh Rachele (corked thigh) Test.

High Performance Manager Darren Burgess said Rachele would be assessed again after Wednesday’s main training session to determine his availability for Saturday’s game against Geelong.

“Josh sustained a reasonable quad cork and he’ll be managed this week and we’ll see how he goes,” Burgess said.

“We’ll give him every chance to come up for the weekend, he will do a modified session on Wednesday and give him every chance to train on Friday and play on Saturday.”

Rory Sloane (knee) Season 

“Sloaney is out of the knee brace and moving more freely which I’m sure he and his family are happy with,” Burgess said.

“You might see him on the bench on game day, he’s really helping some of the boys when they come off (the ground) and annoying the hell out of me chirping in my ear about different things that need to happen during the game.

“It’s good to see him back and he’s really starting to get some heavy resistance training throughout his knee and the rest of his lower body so he’s doing really well.”
