It is likely time to make the move on Dan Hannebery due to his hamstring concern, he is currently on a modified running program and is doubtful to play Round 1.
“He’s in a race for Round 1.. he’d be up against it.. he’s just had.. pain in his hamstring that doesn’t allow him to extend himself fully” GM of Football Simon Lethlean on Dan Hannebery via @1116sen.
The Hannebery injury was first acknowledged by St Kilda just over 2 weeks ago.
Jake Carlisle will likely miss a significant part of the H&A season as he will see a specialist this week with surgery a possibility, he hasn’t been able to train since mid-late January due to a back complaint.
“He’s going to need to see a specialist.. we need to access whether surgery is an option.. we’ll find out in the next couple of days” GM of Football Simon Lethlean on Jake Carlisle via @1116sen.
Josh Battle has been training with the defensive group, he will likely benefit the most with the Carlisle injury.
There is no timeline for Jack Steven to return to the Saints, he is on personal leave due to mental health & wellbeing.
“We need to look after what is best for Jack (Steven).. he needs to re-insert himself when he is fit & healthy to do so” GM of Football Simon Lethlean via @1116sen.
