Lynch done for year. Balta 6wks. FFS Meehan is a liability.

You’re blaming Meehan for this?

They'll blame Meehan if Baker gets suspended.

Abso stuffen lutley. idiot hasn’t prepared Lynch to play those minutes and then leaves him out there for 5 stuffen minutes after the initial injury. Almost certainly did a lot more damage in the next 3 or 4 contests he was forced to compete in.

Outs:
Lynch
Balta
Banks
Baker probably suspended

Ins:
Kosi
McAuliffe
Dusty
Ryan

Forward line will need to include Kosi, Lefau and Ryan/ruck relief. Dusty, Bolton, Mansell, MRJ etc with some midfield rotations.. Looks like utter dog crap from talls perspective but oh well they'll just need to bring it to ground.

Backline will need to be Young, Miller, Broad, Banks.

Load of rubbish.

Such bad luck for both Lynch and Balta. The Balta one happened in the last play of the game  :banghead

He is a disgrace is what he is. He should be investigated for poo practice Meehan.

Still gets defended on here, but I guess it's easier than to admit you are completely wrong, which they are.

What an abso stuffen lutley stupid comment. Your hatred of Meehan is duly noted.

Marking contest he hurts his hammy. No one forced him to stay out there, being a leader he did what he believed he needed to do. He was off within a few minutes not 5. Doctors make medical calls not the head of fitness.

FWIW he had 82% game time. If he didn't sustain an injury I doubt very much you'd be complaining about his game time

BTW

Nowhere on the website (I'll post it shortly) does it say he is out for the season. It says seeing a surgeon this week

As for Balta it says 3-5 weeks

This is laughable, I was at the game and no one made him stay out there, he tried to leave the ground but he chose to compete because the ball kept going to his area. And I doubt very much that you have the qualifications to make that call about more damage being done. Criticise where it’s due and if you have the knowledge to back it up.

I’m not defending him, just refusing to blame him for something that I have zero knowledge about.

Richmond Injury Updates


By Richmond Media
1 hr ago

Richmond can confirm that forward pair Tom Lynch and Noah Balta are set for time on the sidelines following fourth-quarter injuries in yesterday’s win against Sydney.

Lynch suffered a significant hamstring tendon injury behind his left knee, which will likely require surgery.

The key forward planted his leg awkwardly, following contact in a marking contest. He felt immediate discomfort and took himself from the field.

Balta has a moderate MCL injury that will keep him out of the game for 3-5 weeks, after he also landed with discomfort, in the final seconds of the match.

Richmond General Manager, Football Performance Tim Livingstone, said the injuries were unfortunate.

“It is rotten luck for Tom, who worked extremely diligently to prepare his body for the season after what was a tough season for him last year,” he said.

“Unfortunately for Tom, he landed in a motion that has caused this injury.

“He will consult a surgeon in the coming days, which will give us a clearer picture of the injury's timeline, but we are expecting he will be out for the longer term."

Balta had made a bright start to the season in a new forward role- but is also set to miss some football.

“In one of the last contests of the game, Noah unfortunately hurt his knee, and scans have confirmed some damage to his MCL,” Livingstone said.

“We will assess him further this week, but we do not expect him to play before the bye.”
