We'll give it a couple of weeks for the swelling to go down and he'd probably have an operation at the end of the month.
I just thought he needed to be down here for his son. He got in the car straight away.
People are saying we're playing very well at the moment but there are going to be up and down periods, it's not going to be plain sailing the whole time.
We're not too sure yet, that he'll have his first run today. I think the best way to put it is that we're hopeful he'll get up so we'll give him till the last minute and see how he goes.
He's pain-free so we're fairly confident that he'll certainly be right by the first round, but hopefully be able to get one or two practice matches in.
He'll probably miss this week's practice match and then he'll be fine.
Our aim next year is to make the finals and the sooner we can do that during the season, like at Rounds 18 or 19, (the better). Then we can we can re-assess our goals.
I'm not to sure about the figure, but there's no doubt when you look at the premier who gets 250,000 and the night premier gets about 220,000 which is about the same - (it) seems like a bit of an inequity.
These two young gentlemen have exceeded all expectations as players and are really going to form part of the backbone for the future and I think it's a great credit to them.
Peter was unlucky not to play in round one and then it has been difficult to make a change since, but he will play this week in the ruck and we have got confidence in him because he played well in most of the last 10 games last year.
I haven't had a chance to talk to the match committee or the board at this stage, but I would imagine Brad would take the captaincy.
We are not sure about Nathan yet, he got a kick in the knee last week (in the Dogs' intra-club match) and we will have to see how he comes up.
People are saying we are going to benefit from the new rules the most, but Lindsay mightn't be close enough to take advantage of the quick kick-in. We might lose an advantage there.
