If it's an ankle it may not be a big drama. There's a number of minor ailments that could easily be linked with his syndesmosis sprain last year that won't cause too many headaches.

The bloke is an absolute gun. Our most underrated player in the league. Lambert and Edwards (who I have always loved), are behind him in the peaking order. But I rarely see him in the media ranked in their company or above.

I hope we have got a good replacement for strength and conditioning guru Rob Innes who's gone to the Swans. Prestia and Nank came back and didn't miss a beat last season.
Over the last few years players who have been out for an extended period have come back in ripping nick thanks to Rob.

Scans have revealed a medial strain rather than a tear.
Should be a short to medium term injury

I am still none the wiser:

Short term usual means 2 to 3 medium 4 to 6 weeks, not sure how it equates in hamstring speak?

It's pretty good news.

You'd always take a strain over a tear and a medial hamstring is the 'better' hamstring injury to have. It's more related to the knee and hip motion as opposed to a failure of the muscle.

Sounds like a pretty standard 21-28 days, all going well.

Here is a quote from Dimma on Dion's hammy so as you say not so bad:

"Dion's had a bit of a stagnated period. He's probable at this stage for round one. He probably won't play any of our practice matches at this stage just to make sure he does get right," Hardwick said.

"He's got some tightness in the medial hamstring, which is not severe. We're not overly worried about it, we just have to manage that along the way."

If that's accurate it's even better, doesn't even sound like a strain. A bit of tightness in the medial from someone with knee and ankle issues is par for the course, a few light days and a bit of strength work and away he goes.

Not to say he will play round one, but in a long term sense you'd be more worried about an ingrown toenail.

And from Prestia today :) :

Of the hamstring strain he incurred late last week, Prestia said: "It is just a little hamstring – it is in a good spot if you are going to do a hamstring.

"I'll be good for round one, it is just a little hiccup. The pre-season was really good until that, but this happens."

How good is this bloke. First hit out for the year... lazy 25 touches - 12 contested, 9 clearances, 24 pressure acts and 4 tackles.

Can't believe I couldn't sneak him or Lambert into the votes. Dion was great in the clinches.
