He wasn't. He was reportedly walking.

OMG - a player walking.

Slash wrists, climb tall building, seek hemlock ....

I would have thought Ruckmen have sore calfs every week. With all that jumping and crashing into an opponent all day. 

Big Max will wear Jimmy’s number on sunday

Am I missing something - #11?

Overkill IMO. Just pick a method of death and go with it.

Jonesy on 360 was very confident that Max would play.  Party line?  Dunno.

My source tells me this morning that the calf is much improved. Max could not fully weight bear on that particular side earlier in the week but is now walking freely without discomfort.

Will be put through some running tomorrow morning and if he pulls up ok he will be right to go.

My source is confident Max will play which was music to my ears!

Great news.  Coming from you, this fills me with a lot of confidence.  Thank you.

Max needs to spend periods down forward, having spells (and kicking goals)

Pedo will be in the 22 i reckon.

As I mentioned in another thread, did anyone notice Gawn had his calf heavily strapped against the Suns? I did, so him walking laps was no surprise.

I also missed the Adelaide match due to other commitments, but watching the 1st quarter this morning, he obviously had heavy strapping on the calf then too.

Its obviously something he has been managing for a while now.

Pedo is in the 22, I'm thinking that is a good bet each way for either fully covering Max in the ruck, or at the minimum he plays that big man intercept marking role that Max has played so well in the back half of the season to give Max a bit of a chop out.

Yep. He will do both i hope. 

He will play crucial roles. Let’s hope he does them well. We need him if we are going to proceed

That’s shin padding, which is what most ruckmen are using instead of shin guards now.

Wondered why the Opposition keeps trying to bring the big fella down all the time after he gets rid of the ball.....

Is it only shin padding though?

Looked to me like his calf was strapped.

Yeah that’s what it looks like, but under the strapping is a little pad right where the shinbones clash, you’ll notice it on most ruckmen this year.

I think Hunt is more so to cover the role of Smith.  Pedo takes big pack marks at AFL level, Smith doesn't do that yet.

Spar go to ruck. Would certainly be an interesting first bounce.
