No sign of a live stream of the game? Other clubs have been doing a great job of that, bit of a shame we aren't keeping up.

Shame about Prestia but no real harm in a nice clean hammy at this time of the year.
Run of the mill tear you're thinking Large Son of Bull?

Obviously has put a lot of work through it, and sas many are unaware soft tissues are not uncommon leading into the season as the intensity goes up following the loading.

Like someone else stated, we win Premierships when Dion is injured pre season :))

Presty n Bash easing into a long season quietly just opens the door a little bit for some of our youngsters to stick their noses in n have a rummage around.
After four years of full finals campaigns and some of the horror injury runs we've had to key players. I'm not overly fussed if a couple of players ease their way into the year n the kids get a few more games.

Yes its a great ploy... I mean a great chance to give a kid a taste...

If we win it again this year, what are the odds that the AFL will bring out a rule that if you're injured for Round 1, you can't play finals football.

Yeah, classic overload nick I would guess. I don't mind them at this time of year because it cues you in to find what's out of balance. Otherwise you can have a time bomb under you that goes off at a time when you least want it.
Maybe he's changed boots, maybe he's done different weights, might have not put the work into his core but odds are there will be something in there. I knew a guy once who changed cars and did a hamstring so he demanded the old car back because he was sure it was the different seat.

Wonder if having the slight ankle injury and doing little work for 10 days and then going straight to riding a bike 100k up mountains on the Bright camp had anything to do with it?
Oh well plenty of young mids waiting for their chance.

Possibly, although bike riding is pretty low impact on the hamstrings. I'd forgotten the ankle though, that could definitely cause a different gait and put a bit of unusual stress through the muscle.

I knew a guy who tore his left hammy pretty badly and had to drive an hour home, in a manual.

It was me. Ouch!

What was Roughhead doing?
Patton got rid of the ball and Roughhead still went through with the tackle.
It wouldve been interesting if it was Steele or Gresham he injuried
Only saw it once and that's exactly what I thought.... Two years out of game and his reflexes are way down? But totally avoidable.

Hehe I did the same with a torn abductor, way back in my Brock Commodore, that had the Muncie rockcrusher gearbox and a clutch you needed both feet to depress.

The surprising thing was he never did any of those tackles in entire career at hawthorn.
He broke his leg 2 places.
Ratten wouldve lost his nut if it was a big name player

Not too worried about Houli's and Prestia's minor niggles and hearing that Soldo is doing well is especially pleasing
Houli would have to be doubtful for at least the first few weeks, which gives an opportunity to someone either in defence or on the wing if KMac or Marlion play down back.

I'll go out on a limb and say there is no way Soldo plays this season.

Weight is a significant risk factor in reoccurrence of those types of injuries and it would be completely out of keeping with how we have handled these recoveries in the past to put him under a football ready load at the high risk 9 month mark. That would mean he won't do any sort of significant training until July/August at best.
