From what I saw at our recovery session today Tigga is almost certain to play.
Thanks caesar, dare I say it....Hail! :))

Was he kicking longer passes?
Do they kick the footies during recovery sessions?
Excuse my ignorance.
I think I heard somewhere from last week Floss saying he still gets pain when kicking more than 20 to 30 metres.

Wednesday will be all telling but Nick was moving well today and kicking the ball as required in the drills, no-one was bombing the ball today it was pretty ball movement and 40 meter passes.

**I will reserve my almost certain to play comment as I have just seen what @theglove3 alerted me to that Tigga was experiencing issues when kicking over 30 nmetres, (Wednesday will be an important day):

Vlastuin had surgery on his cartilage on his right knee after he was subbed off against Carlton in round one. He has trained strongly in terms of running over the past week but kicking has been issue. He has complained of soreness when he kicks more than 30 metres. The Tigers said on Monday he still needed to “tick off a couple of boxes”.

He's no Tom Stewart.
A commentator (not sure if Brayshaw or Darcy) kept saying multiple AA during the Syd-Gee match and Stewart had the ball. They kept gushing over him.

He basically runs around without an opponent collecting SC points.

The AA criteria must be heavily weighed in favour of meaningless stats. The worst thing is the panel is mainly x-footballers who should know better.

No point me doing a training report today as it was a total Tigga watch for me, the good news is that he completed full training and was kicking pretty well and over distance.
Only reason he wouldn't play is if he pulls up sore.
**DTLD did very little today, hopefully just putting him in cotton wool as precaution due to the loss of Grimes.
