    Matai has an injury in his neck that can never be fixed I believe, and is constantly a week by week proposition

    I'm sure a number of us have worried how long Steve Matai can go on playing at this level of comp with those sort of chronic unfixable injuries.

    Am sure we all greatly admire Steve's skill, courage and attitude but this can't go on indefinitely before something gives and retirement happens one way or another....

    Or can he? Whadderya reckon...surely Des must be factoring this in and looking for (or developing) a class centre just in case

    He goes down injured every game, I dont know whether he just shies at every ache, it's a ploy to make people think he is injured, or because he is made of marshmellow

    Jesus Dan, even I have never accused Stevie Wonder of being a marshmellow.  Kiwi will have your balls for that.  T-Rex is a worry though.  Just what's up with this big guy?  We're now into our fourth month of 09 and I thought he pulled his hammy last year.  Am I alone in thinking these enormous islander guys take a long time to recover?

    Hamstrings can be like that, we had a guy at soccer do his Hammy he was out for most of the season came back and in the last game before finals and the Hammy wasnt 100% and he did it again. They are hard things to rest because you use your legs so often

    Every time Matai gets his neck injury he always clutches at his wrist/arm.  Didn't they say he had pins and needles?  That's worrying, not just for footy but for life.

    Wolfman and his shoulder could become problematic also, since he did it in the WCC and then on his return game.  I hope next time he comes back the shoulder stays up. 

    Orford still has groin/thigh/leg problems also.

    Lyon...who knows

    Wolfman was deemed injury prone at Parra as well

    I pay for insider info from the official website, and either the person posting the injury news has no idea, or they are feeding all the members **** sandwiches.

    Maybe T-Rex's leg has in fact fallen off, and they are waiting for regeneration surgery to be invented and modeled.

    Nah, seriously though - Matai and Lyon are good to go I hear. I hope Matai is all clear, because the last we thing we need is a player coming off at the 20 odd minute mark that should be a full gamer.

    Good to hear that Lyon is OK.  We'll need his defensive smarts.  If Matai makes it onto the paddock he'd better stay in the line or Benjii will jig past him.  Always a worry.

    Wish Tony Williams was available and maybe Bailey could go to the bench
