Keep Francis in the team and forward

Getting some Stringer learnings will be great for his overall game


#4162

hope he’s alright


#4163

Please be ok Jake. So important and exciting to watch.


#4164

What was the injury? Couldn’t tell from the game?


#4165

no one knows, has his calf bandaged. He was going for a mark and a Hawks player accidentally rolled over his leg.


#4166

He got a big push in the back, is why.


#4167

I’m guessing but I reckon he’ll be right for next week.

He nearly came back on. Richardson said there doesn’t appear to be any structural problem. He was just sore


#4168

cheers- that’s promising


#4169

He was running on at three quarter time when all the push and shove started

I assumed he was ok from that


#4170

Seems to cop alot of injuries but then he’s fine a week or 2 later, even his hammies are rehabbed within 2 weeks.

Wierd body, fingers crossed it’s similar with this one and he’s at least back for GWS.


#4171

Yeh if it was close they may have put him back on. Just depends on how much it bruises/ swells and how he rehabs it in short week.
I would probably back him in to play even if it’s a little sore, he’s a tough cookie.


#4172

Cross all your fingers & toes people


#4173

Tough body. Reminds me of Stewie Crameri.


#4174

Just gave an update on Fox Footy, said hes been cleared of any serious damage and that hes just pretty sore, and that the bombers are expected to release a statement shortly.


#4175

That’s great news!


#4176

They are both from the same neck of the woods (Maryborough), might be something in the water!


#4177

Outside chance for next week https://www.essendonfc.com.au/news/2019-06-15/stringer-injury-update


#4178

Thank fark


#4179

That’s great that it was just a knock.

I look forward to seeing him miss the next 3 weeks


#4180

He definitely rolled it as well so you’d think a week or two. Not much chance off a 6 day break.
