Elevated!  @cdellolio_ has been moved to the Essendon senior list. #DonTheSash

Small forward Cory Dell‘Olio has been elevated to the club‘s senior list ahead of Saturday night‘s clash against GWS.

Dell‘Olio has shown strong form in recent weeks playing for the Bombers VFL team, booting four goals against Richmond at Punt Road Oval last weekend.

The 24-year-old managed three senior games in 2013 adding to his career tally of eleven games since debuting in 2012.

Will Hams and Nick Kommer to be placed on the long-term injury list after both undergoing surgery in recent weeks.

Kommer recently underwent surgery on his knee to repair patella tendonitis that has hampered his 2014 season.

Hams also underwent surgery on his hip after failing to overcome a psoas tendon complaint during the season.

Alex Browne, Will Hams, Nick Kommer are now all on the long term injury list for the 2014 season leaving one remaining position on the club‘s senior list.

Cue peeto siezure.

A certainty to play this week...

Step 1 rookie elevated. 

Step 2 selected for senior game. 

step 3 Peeto elevated (or a word which means something like that).  :D  :P


sweeet. Hope he gets consecutive games in a row. Really think he could be a big weapon up front

Winderlich in doubt? Who would you drop for Dell this week? Do we need a poll?

Peeto and the Dell'Olio Fan Club welcoming the news of Cory‘s elevation.

Who goes out for his in?



Licha is injured again isn’t he?

Shattered, but good news with Dell finally back in the senior side.

Stephen Milne was at bombers before going to saints. Milne was up and down in performance game to game but over a period of a year, he was a key player for the saints.

In terms of a small forward (on field comparison only) is Cory’s development along those lines?

Good on him for getting another chance and I wish him well.

He doesn't have the tools to be a great small forward at AFL level though in my opinion but I look forward to being proven wrong.

I assume he will be playing the Davey role?

Oh and Peeto - for shame! You couldn’t break the news?

First I was all




Then I was all




Now I'm all




The GWS specialist.

Last chance Dell, make the most of it.


so funny because it's true




Well done to Dell,  I would imagine Winders is going to miss this week
