    The positive news is that Brett's injury is a low grade medial strain meaning that he should be right to play in the first week of the Semis, depending on 'other matters'. Hoppa is racing the clock to be fit on the same weekend. His injury is said to be healing well.

    This is based on media reports over the weekend.

    I'm not sure about Brett. He played on for 10 mins after supposedly hurting it in the fight. Then he jogged off the field at half time. Don't be surprised if they took him off the field given the nature of the game and the fact that Melbourne only managed to attack our try line when we knocked on off the kick off and then right before halftime when Robbo put that good defensive tackle on. We had them beat before halftime.

    Barring suspension, they'll give him next week off and trot out for the finals i reckon.

    I saw Hoppa after the game and he was walking pretty good and without a brace (he had a brace on after the Dogs game last Sunday). But I can't see him been ready for this Sunday. Robbo to fullback (or if suspended like media are suggesting - Oldie to fullback. He plays there in NSW Cup).

    Tunks again on Talking Sport (he's annoying me today) keeps telling people Brett may not be back at all because of his knee. Anyone else heard about this?
