Jordan De Goey will be available for selection following the glute complaint that kept him out of Friday night’s game against Brisbane. De Goey trained over the weekend and returned to full speed training.

Bobby Hill will be available for selection on Friday night should he get through training this week. Scans have shown there is no damage to his hamstring that kept him out of the game against Brisbane.

Jakob Ryan is under the concussion protocols following an incident early in Friday night’s clash against Brisbane. Ryan is in the early phase of protocols and will progress to the next phase once he is symptom free.

Nathan Murphy received two knocks during Friday’s clash, one in the second quarter and one in the last term. The knocks have left Murphy with multiple corks in his back and glute region. The defender will be assessed ahead of Round 24.

In the VFL against Southport on Saturday, Nathan Kreuger suffered an impact injury to his shoulder which saw him unable to complete the game. The forward had surgery to the same shoulder preseason this year, however scans have fortunately cleared him of any damage. Kreuger will also be assessed ahead of this weekend’s VFL Wildcard Round match.

Will Kelly was close to playing in Saturday’s VFL clash against Southport following his recovery from an ankle injury. The 23-year-old will be available for selection this weekend after clearing key agility markers in his recovery.

Darcy Moore is making strong progress in his recovery from a hamstring injury sustained during the side’s Round 22 match against Geelong. The Captain is back to around 80-85 per cent running speed and could participate in match simulation in the BYE week before finals. Moore is on track to be available for selection for the first week of finals.

Nick Daicos is off crutches ahead of schedule in his knee injury rehab. The young midfielder has started bike, gym, and pool-based exercises and is expected to start running in the next fortnight. A  further update on his return to play timeline will be communicated in the coming weeks.

Charlie Dean has returned to full training and match sim – an exciting milestone in his recovery from a season ending foot injury that has seen him on the long-term injury list.

  1. Good luck to everyone who made a Supercoach Final(s)

    Another year coming to a close.

    Next year, Clubs are to present more accurate timeframes, not misleading short term, medium term and long terms. A welcome improvement.
    Hopefully more clubs will post a more detailed injury lists and promptly.

    Aspiration for 2024.
    No more misleading reports. ##### is out for 3 weeks plus but makes a miraculous recovery and returns the week after!!!

    I will return next year with the Injury lists.

    All the best and stay safe.



    1. Thanks for your contribution for the season CT and making it easier to track the pain of which of premium needed to be traded each week from my team as the season went on


    2. Thanks to Chaos Theory and many other regular all make the season more enjoyable with advice and general banter..will the afl also get rid of taggers who are usually less abilities than the players they tag..would Nick daicos be on the injury list if he wasn’t tagged so hard..let these massively talented players run free ..we pay good money to watch these brilliant footballers shine..


      1. Remove defensive tactics further?
        If you notice not many taggers that are used by coaches have actually been good. It takes skill to make an effective tag.
        If you want a player to show their talent, they need to use it to know how to break a tag


        1. What skills are required to hold on to opponents by the jumper,arms,blocking, straggling.. none whatsoever..just another blight on the game.


          1. You can’t close down space and make them tough to get the ball to without being under a lot of pressure to get tackled? It’s to stop them making it easy to get the ball to and easy to distribute the ball.
            It is just applied pressure on a player and not actually physically holding them otherwise they would be giving away free kicks.

            Might need to remove key defenders then and the spoil. The are stopping marking contests and players scoring more goals. Too defensive for the game.


            1. Danny Frawley would be turning in his grave – The Golden Fist would become obsolete.
              Except for a ‘hanger’ there is not much better than seeing a big defensive fist smashing the ball out of play.


  2. I wonder how many teams missing the finals might rest a player or 2.
    Geelong have already signalled a long list – including Cameron and Hawkins. I hope Stewart doesn’t get added to that list.
    Adelaide will be worth keeping an eye on. A bit worried that Laird is a bit banged up.
    Full power to those who kept a trade or two for such an event. I’m out and will be relying on cover


  3. Copped a doughnut for late out LDU, which cost me 4 finals. Including my main league by less than 50.
    Hoping I don’t cop another blow for the 1 GF I scraped into this week.
