“Nic pulled up with a tight hamstring after a training session last week and given the time of year we are just managing him conservatively,”

“He has had a low-key start to the week on the track and we will build up his workload later this week and next with the intention of him playing some game minutes in our AAMI Community Series match.” Craig Vozzo.

Naitanui played in 17 of 18 games last season.

AFL FANTASY TAKE

Naitanui averaged 69.7pts from 17 games last season, he scored a season high 94pts against Brisbane in Round 3 & St Kilda in Round 17.

The latest setback for Naitanui should provide caution for those coaches looking to start with Naitanui, the Eagles will be very cautious with the star ruck.

Bailey Williams & Nathan Vardy are in the backup slot for the Eagles this season with the departure of Hickey to Sydney in the off-season, Williams has been hurt this pre-season while Vardy appears to be tracking well via @FootyRhino.
