I worry when we play him tall. But Grimes has not been looking agile this year. And not looking as brisk.

Maybe we had to play him tall.

Burge has said that he's not happy with the hamstring situation at the club this year and is reviewing it.

Gibcus is back in the ones. And looking a bit more mature. We get to see how this plays out.

Hope his surgeon has performed a miracle as unlikely as his return is.
Unlikely Old I think he will bail.
He hasn't been Grimes all year. He hasn't been the same.
Fingers crossed he makes it back but very very unlikely.
That was a serious hammy. That's easy 10 weeks in the Hearld sun injury report

I was thinking that trying to keep up with the quicker type small forwards might not be so good for his hammies ?
one could speculate that his hammies are at more risk with the more stop/start nature of playing on leading talls.
but in reality i dont think there is any difference. if he plays on any opponent he is still going to repeat sprint, bend and jump.

Since we are going full tilt at another flag in 2023 , the new “ skip” is crucial to our chances , hopefully the surgery was successful and he can stay healthy and get full confidence back in the string over the pre season

Looked lame all year to me. I'll be interested to see how brisk he is next year and see his turning circle. Hopefully Grimes can regain that edge.

Yeah seemed to be out of sorts. Dropped many marks that he usually swallows.

We'll find out in a month or so that he played with a broken thumb, a broken wrist and necrotic haemorrhoids.

I don't know what necrotic haemorrhoids are compared to bog standard rhoids, but I have a feeling I don't want to know

A strange n deviant poster at times is our very own Dyer'ere. Ifn your rhoids was necrotic, they'd be serious nasty, way above n beyond the difficulties n irritations of normal rhoids. Not sure there's much could match the old freckle being constructed of dead n rotting flesh, although mine's been known to release fumes that would suggest I could have a similar problem.

Good news, and the Martin piece at the bottom of the article - two critical parts of the team that we need to be performing well if we want to go deep next year.


Grimes on track for full pre-season​

Jon Pierik
Richmond co-captain Dylan Grimes has impressed club medical staff in his recovery from surgery and is ready to complete a full pre-season.

Grimes, 31, required hamstring surgery in August after he was hurt in the round-20 clash against Brisbane at the MCG. He missed the final three home-and-away games and what was the season-ending loss to the Lions in an elimination final at the Gabba.
The veteran defender has a history of hamstring issues, so understood what awaited in his recovery.

Tigers officials say he has been running and recovering well and will join in full training when the senior group officially resumes later this month.
Grimes remains a key part of the Tigers’ premiership plans, and his composure was missed late in the season.

Ahead of his 200th game in June, Grimes opened up about his hamstring battles, revealing he had been on the verge of retirement before his second hamstring tendon surgery a decade ago.
Between 2011-13, Grimes managed to play just 25 of a possible 67 senior games because of hamstring issues, and was sent to Germany to spend time with German doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt for expert treatment.
As Grimes ramps up his preparation, Dustin Martin has been seen running laps at Punt Road, with the Tigers hoping the star midfielder can reclaim his place at the top of the league’s pecking order.
Martin managed only nine games through injury and a leave of absence to deal with the death of his father. He averaged less than 19 touches per game.
He returned for the elimination final, having not played since round 16, but the decision to select him was criticised after coach Damien Hardwick declared before the game that the triple Norm Smith medallist was only “80 per cent fit”. He had only 15 possessions and a goal in the two-point loss to the Lions.

The Tigers expect to remain in premiership mode this season, having acquired midfielders Tim Taranto and Jacob Hopper through the trade period. Their first-to-fourth year players begin official training on Monday.
