    1. WCE injuries has been update.

      Richmond have not released an injury list to their website nor have the AFL released an injury list for all the clubs.

      Hopefully this will be rectified tomorrow.


  1. Mitch Lewis doubtful for weekend and maybe season.

    In a moon boot at the club today after spraining his ankle.


  2. Was certainly hoping for Walsh back this week. Big watch on Doc as well. Super sub Hewett has covered Walsh beautifully. Hope I can go to that well one more time, but might be asking a bit much.


    1. I’m quite frustrated that I went Walsh over LDU. Also thankful though that Hewett has been the cover for me though as well.
      Not sure what to do with a final trade when I’m out of my leagues though…..


        1. Seems pointless when there is nothing to play for.
          More wanting to transfer it over to next year.
          Might just rage trade Steele so I don’t see him in my final team after how he ruined my finals


  3. Collingwood: 2 outs for round 23.

    Jordan De Goey sustained a deep glute strain last weekend is unavailable this week.

    Bobby Hill has been ruled out on Wednesday morning after leaving the track early with hamstring awareness.
