Four NEAFL players require fitness test before becoming available for the Round 6 selection, while few women carry some niggling injuries heading into Round 1.
Two injuries added after Round 4 while the other boys continue to improve and with any luck, the coaches will have a full, healthy squad to select from in the next few weeks.
Three players will undergo fitness tests before they are declared available for Round 4.
In good news, some of the injuries have come off the list in Hugo Doregmuller, Josiah Farrer and Ben Taylor while minor one-week injuries have been added.
Josiah Farrer (concussion) was the only new injury to occur in Round 1 while a number of players are making progress with their rehab, check out the latest injury list.
A total of eight injuries to start our 2019 NEAFL season, none too serious, with Sam Smith now in rehab after his ACL surgery.
It is confirmed that Sam Smith has a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee and will undergo surgery.
Following an injury Sam Smith sustained in the NTFL on the weekend, he has undergone a scan with indicators sadly showing damage to his ACL.
Heading into our final men’s game for the season there are a few players injury list requiring assessment and no new additions to the women’s injury list.
A few head-on collisions in the women’s match resulted in two mouth injuries to Gemma Cusack and Michaelia Roberts and for the men there’s nothing major only a couple of players requiring assessment.
Lots of fitness tests await the men while the women have a fairly clean bill of health with the exception of Tabby May.
With a few niggly injuries for the men, this week is the ideal time for them to have their bye while the women have no new additions this week.
The ThunderW team have four players requiring assessment after Round 12 and unfortunately for the men Phillip Wills is on the sidelines for 4-6 weeks due to a back fracture.
Six out of the 10 injury’s for the men this week require them to pass a fitness test before they’re available for selection while the women still have a clean slate with no injuries to report.
For the second consecutive week there are no players on the ThunderW injury list this week while Hugo Drogemuller (shoulder) and Coen Hutt (neck) are the only new additions to the men’s.
