I see this a an absolute blessing... both CCJ and Chol will get a proper run at it. Suspect we might play them both...and drop astbury.

Light weight. I managed a torn meniscus for 3 years.

What a co-incidence. When I was working as a jackeroo just outside Bangkok, I had a side hustle managing a reggae band called Taun Mhaniskus. They were on the verge of making it big time when, all of sudden, @Dyer'ere muscled his way in and, well, you can imagine, that was the end of that.

So you didn't love them long time ?

I wouldn't be surprised if he's had this all season.

It's a fascinating question. One of my favourite things to do used to be to try and read other club's players injuries, as there's obviously some advantage to be had from that at times.

Assuming there hasn't been an impact to the knee we're not aware of, they have either taken this into the season or it has suffered a pretty significant degradation so far.

If we assume it was the former, which I feel more likely, then it has either degraded to the point where he can no longer manage to play through it, or they have decided his performance is being impacted so much that it is pointless playing through it, or they have decided there is no longer enough value in him playing to justify the decision to not repair now.

My money is on number three, my guess is they don't feel we can win the flag with the current output from Lynch, so it is worth rolling the dice on repairing his knee, in the hope that he will get back and the side will have done enough to create a window of opportunity for success that he can then impact.

I'd describe this as a fixture based surgery.

No co-incidence that this has happened the minute our fixture eases. Reckon this has been there for a while. They thought they'd play him while we were playing some big guns and jag what wins we could.

I completely agree with this point.

I think this explains his kicking, his very mediocre form and inability to jump.

I also think the fact we're sending him in for surgery is a case of this is a win win.
We get games into CCJ and/or Chol. We put him in, everyone is going to acknowledge that injury has cruelled our year. We get a chance to reload the list by the draft this year, with some slightly higher picks than if we finished 6-8.
If the new guys come in and we get wins, we have a potentially injury free rejuvenated Lynch for finals.

I think the clubs so much more professional in the past. I'd back it's management here with great confidence.

Probably explains why it has been patchy. I don’t think this is a recent injury.

Explains why he couldn’t bend below his knees.

yep. He's been moving like C3P0 all year. Classic *smile* knee huge turning circle (maybe Andrew Raines was carrying a pair of torn menisci his whole career?)

sounds crazy, but CCJ could make us better.

Saw him this morning at work, and he said he will announce where he is going in 1 week. Second time in the last month or so I have had a short interaction with him at work, and he is the most awkward person. I cant put my finger on it, but he just seems nervous or socially awkward or something! :cutelaugh :cutelaugh

Yeah it’s a chance to see CCJ against average opposition

good chance for him
