Thought I read somewhere a torn hamstring - hope not.
The way he went off Straight away after he felt it go I would be guessing 4 weeks
Another star out of the dogs game.
time for Garry Riccardi to shine!
He will play next week
I actually thought or heard he was carrying an injury into the game, I hope he is ok for next week
definitely give Riccardi a chance!! We don't have anyone else! Maybe Jamie but he is needed out wide.
Yeah suspected torn right hamstring (according to Fox Sports commentary).
No idea on grading but problem with such injuries is they generally get worse once the player cools down, and you can't really do much to repair them, and certainly can't train until it's completely healed.
Rest him. He's still a very valuable player and not worth risking. I'd like to see Riccardi get a chance anyway.
Grade 1 = 3 weeks. Back vs the Dogs
Grade 2 = 6 weeks
Having scans tomorrow, just in doubt for Mondays game so far.
He probably needs the rest. He seems a bit battered.
If hes out for a few weeks, surely he can sort out his contract negotiations.
i have a feeling his big brother might get the call up next monday night
Surely Riccardi would get a crack before Liam.
It might be nothing but a couple weeks ago I think Liam was 19th man or something when Kieran was in doubt. Also Liam plays 5/8 and Riccardi at 7 in nsw cup plus we dont know if Liam is a better foil for Cherry or Riccardi is.
Liam plays a similar game to Kieran that might be a better fit for the team and the halves combo, its not always the best to slot in a better player that doesn't mould well. Just my 2 cents.
