Agreed CK.

Early in the year I remarked to a fellow Blues supporter that one reason why we were doing well was because of far better depth. We were able to replace a few injured players with others that were similar in ability - unlike previous years where an injury to a top 10 player would mean the replacement was nowhere near as competent.

Unfortunately 14 players missing puts us back in a similar position. It is also causing us to bring back injured players too soon when they may have recovered from the injury but are called on to play a role in the senior side with insufficient match play experience.

It would be a great effort to maintain our spot in the 8, have the pre finals bye, get a few players back and win a final or 2.

Yes ..... the BYE before finals would be the bye to regroup. The mid season one has always done the opposite.
Just need to make those damn finals.

I'd forgotten that Kennedy was originally out with a jaw/concussion. Must have been some serious vibration to rupture his ankle ligaments.

We've been among the worst for injuries every year for as long as I can remember. Mixture of bad recruitment, bad player management, and I suppose a little bad luck.

There really needs to be a review about our constant injury issues

Can’t simply be bad luck

I am thinking there has been confusion about Kennedys ankle injury

Please let me know if there is a current post about it - that article is August 2018
