  1. I’ve had English and Hewett warming the bench for 3 and 2 weeks respectively now, having lost past 2 weeks by small margins, I don’t think I can afford them not playing…hopefully more certain updates when teams announced or looks like side-ways trading to playing premo’s for me


    1. English out this week with the manflu- so another week on the sidelines- perfect to bring in next week!


  2. Rumour has it Hewitt might come back after his bye. He’ll be a test to play until up to then. I’m thinking just trade him out and get him after his bye.


    1. Cheesecake

      I heard on Twitter. Drew jones.

      Hewett trained today and just need to get through Friday to play Sunday.

      I would hold that trade for now.


      1. Right again FT.(ever reliable info expert)

        Carlton: George Hewett – “Was able to fully train today as he aims to return from a corked calf. Will need to train fully on Friday though to confirm his availability for the weekend.” Carlton FC.


  3. Carlton update:

    Harry McKay (knee) torn the lateral meniscus in his knee and is expected to miss 6 weeks.

    Luke Parks is expected to be sidelined for the next three months after further investigations determined he had suffered a bone stress injury in his foot.

    George Hewett – “Was able to fully train today as he aims to return from a corked calf. Will need to train fully on Friday though to confirm his availability for the weekend.” Carlton FC.
