“He played the whole game out and was a little bit sore, but our fingers were crossed obviously post-game that he would wake up feeling alright the next day and that there was not too much going on.”

“But, he had some scans and definitely sprained his PCL, which is going to require a couple of weeks out of the game, just for it to glue up and for him to do a little bit of strength work around that and get his stability back to normal.”

“We will have a better idea in the next week or two about his return to play, but at this stage, it is probably a medium-term injury.” Tigers Physical Performance Manager Peter Burge.

Callum Coleman-Jones & Mabior Chol have shared ruck duties in the VFL side this season, they both played in Round 11 against Adelaide.

Sampson Ryan is still raw but he could offer up ruck support if required. 

Tigers senior coach Damien Hardwick hasn’t been afraid to concede hit outs in games, midfielder Shaun Grigg was used in the ruck several years ago. Marlion Pickett has been used in the ruck at times this season. 

Nankervis is a trade-out in AFL Fantasy classic.
