COLLINGWOOD introduced two extra gamers to its already crippling damage listing over the weekend, however, there seems to be some suitable news on the horizon for Nathan Buckley’s side with a pair of experienced performers set to return to the fray.
Experienced skipper Scott Pendlebury (finger) and key defender Darcy Moore (hamstring) harm themselves at some point of the Magpies’ interesting one-point victory over the Eagles on Friday night and are not going to make the trip to Sydney to tackle the Giants on Saturday.
The loss of the duo is in all likelihood to be offset with the go back from an injury of excessive-flying defender Jeremy Howe and tough midfielder Taylor Adams because the Pies try to hold their spot within the pinnacle four.
Howe has missed the ultimate 3 matches with calf trouble, even as Adams made his lengthy-awaited go back from adductor trouble through the VFL at the weekend to show he is ready for a senior consider.
The second-positioned Magpies are already missing megastar midfielder Dayne Beams (hip) and electric powered forward Jaidyn Stephenson (suspension), at the same time as skilled trio Daniel Wells (knee), Tom Langdon (knee) and Ben Reid (calf) are also out of motion.
The Giants have their personal injury issues to fear about, with superstar midfielder Stephen Coniglio hurting his knee towards Richmond on Sunday and probable to be sidelined for the rest in their 2019 campaign.
Coniglio could have scans on his knee on Monday and Giants instruct Leon Cameron is hoping for some correct information.
“Until we clearly get it really thoroughly checked out, I can not give you men a solution,” Cameron said after the Giants misplaced to the Tigers.
“He’s in a truly fine headspace in the interim but if I said one element and it happens to be the other, then I’m going to get it incorrect.
“(We’ll) move our hands that we get a few fantastic news.”
Fellow guns Josh Kelly (calf), Jonathon Patton (knee) and Callan Ward (knee) are already out of motion and the loss of Coniglio will depart the Giant’s brief of big-name electricity as they chase a top 4 berth.
A host of different big names were also harmed over the weekend during a bruising round of soccer, with the likes of Essendon veteran Michael Hurley (shoulder), North Melbourne defender Luke McDonald (ankle) and West Coast ahead Jamie Cripps (adductor) all suffering setbacks.
Hurley harms his AC joint in conflict with Kangaroos’ teenager Cameron Zurhaar and will go through a surgical procedure, whilst McDonald fractured the fibula near the ankle on his proper leg and is unlikely to play once more this season.
Cripps broken his adductor during the primary sector of the Eagles clash in opposition to Collingwood and won’t be in shape to make the journey to Alice Springs to tackle Melbourne on Sunday.
