Key position player injured at training and could miss the season.

Sad news if true.

Well, the rules were 'relaxed' to allow the Magpies to recruit Luke Reynolds - $400 a game and no guarantee of a game each week.

Offers from other clubs weren't considered.

i believe in place of an internal trial we're (Glenelg) going to be having a trial match against Shocs, i can see both positives & negatives in this exercise & therefore are in two minds whether it is a good idea or not, heaven help us if we got beaten (not that the scoreboard should count)................should league clubs be playing clubs from the amateur league or similar competitions ?

It is a tradeoff

There is something to be said for having a game against a true opposition.

against

a possible mismatch of abilities or even worse no mismatch if against a lower grade


If the aim is to have a run against a team you know little about so you have adapt on the day it is probably beneficial as long as it is the "process" that is important not the result.

Dare I say it Bayman but I reckon SHOC could have given both of our teams a run for their money towards the end of last season Crying or Very sad

Bayman, is Glenelg oval still in use for cricket? This has been a perennial problem at Unley for early internal trials.

Sorry to answer for Bayman, but the Redbacks have been playing there at the moment...

Not sure if it is the same player you are referring to, but Bryce Retzlaff from Central had a nasty pre-season injury about 4 or 5 weeks ago...

Tore his hamstring quite bad and it looks to be a 10-12 week injury. Is now back to light running and, all going to plan with the rehab, might only miss the first few weeks of the year...

(Re Glenelg Oval) Thanks guys. Silly me, I recall seeing it on TV recently. Combination of heat and old age must be getting to me. Speaking of recollections, I played there myself 50 odd years ago, in Adelaide Turf A1. Also played at Sacred Heart, Richmond and best of all Saint Peters. Like an English village green there. Big trees, track like a carpet. If you couldn't make runs there you didn't deserve to be in the team. Cool

Back to footy. Sturt's James Watt received a nasty facial injury from an accidental head clash a couple of weeks ago, during a competitive training run. Needed quite a bit of surgical repair I understand, and he'll be out of action for some time. Probably mid season at least. More unfortunate, because he has his own business as an electrician. I'm sure the club is assisting him in that regard.

I would think it would be covered under the clubs player insurance otherwise there'd be a work cover scandal
