    Looks like Mann will be out.
    Coach says Fitz is unlikely.
    Apparently Crossland is training well.

    I'd still go Hoy to 5/8 for Mann and bring Randall back so McCulloch doesn't have to wear himself out, and we can also give Randall valuable experience in case we need him to step in later in the season.

    I always thought that Mann injury at the end of the game was to just slow things down and not an actual injury?

    That's exactly the movements I predict.

    Isn't it good to have people to step up after injuries and for us to have faith that they have the skill to not let us down.

    Feels very Melbourne storm like.

    coach said in presser that it's blown up and talked about his options being Hoy, Lino and Crossland. Also said Fitz's first scan had missed some ligament damage and he is possible, but unlikely, and he didn't want to rush him back and cause more injury.

    Should we consider Jones to start and Guerra bench, he looks slow, gives his all but not the player he was.
    On Guerra have to agree with Brownie he was probably the key signing that started what we now have

    If Parra hadn't got an undeserved win this round, we'd be back at the top of the table.

    I think we need to give Guerra a bit more bench time. Old guy is being asked to do a lot of work.

    Coach spoke very positively about Crossland. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him involved and Hoy remain as the 14 or maybe vice versa. Good to have options. Mann was good tonight. I’ve been a critic of his but never want to see a Knight get injured and lose his spot that way.

    Doesn't matter who we playing next week between Hoy, Lino & Crossland. At the rate we're going, all 3 will get a shot in the next 3 weeks. How can we be so unlucky with injuries in the spine.

    The way our middle forwards are going I could play 5/8 and we might still win.

    Looked okay afterwards so must have been one of those after the game types where it was worse then initially thought. He looked okay running sideways and chasing players despite the taping around the boot which I haven't seen very often myself!
