He needs to be an accessory not the main guy. He is forever breaking down and unfortunately it costs us games because we rely on him alone to get clearances.
A fit Prestia is clearly our best 2 way running mid , compliments the way Dusty and Bolton play perfectly

knew it was over when "OUT Prestia, IN Edwards" flashed on the screen.

Once he found his groove we were all over them.

I was surprised we got as close to winning as we did after he went out of the game. We patched his absence well but it probably still cost us the result.

Sad reality is his hamstring injury is now chronic & costly.

And worse, he’s not doing these hamstrings at the end of games where he’s at his most fatigued. He’s doing them early in games.

The more you do them, the more prone you are doing to doing them again. And he’s already doing them a lot.

Big concerns.

Ended the season like he started. Appears that the jump in intensity from pre-season to regular season, regular season to finals is what does him in.

Regardless of what happens from here, he has been a wonderful player for us.

Said for us to be any chance in the finals both Lynch and Prestia had to stay on the park.

Correct ToO. They are chronic.
He can’t trust them anymore.
This will severely impact his longevity as a player unless they can find a miracle cure

Oh East Melbourne!
To be fair he played 19 games … albeit he was subbed 3 times…and obviously one of the four games he missed was from being KO’d. But I get the point and going down on Thursday night was a complete killer.

Been a fair few of those initial Mould Coast players struggled long term with the soft tissue leg problems. From memory they had some fairly ordinary training n rehab facilities in their first few years. Presty, Lynchman, Bennell, Martin n probably a few others that escape me at the moment.

Why don’t we just send him to that German doctor?

Grimes, Prestia, Lynch, Vlossy & Dusty all need to visit the German quack in the off-season. Hamstrings have derailed our season
