De Goey suspended, Pick 7 Hollands debut chance & Reeves recovery
Collingwood will be without Jordan De Goey for their next match after being handed a one-match ban. This year’s Pick 7 Elijah Hollands could debut soon for the Suns while Ned Reeves should be available for selection.
Jordan De Goey (AF $515k SC $371k FWD) has received a one-match suspension after his bump on Melbourne’s Clayton Oliver. The Magpie will now miss the clash with Fremantle in Round 15 after the bye.
This could impact the selection of Jay Rantall (AF $172k SC $113k MID) and also the roles of Jack Crisp (AF $745k SC $529k D/M), Steele Sidebottom (AF $685k SC $485k M/F) and Scott Pendlebury (AF $592k SC $424k M/F).
Elijah Hollands (AF $258k SC $180k M/F) could make his long-awaited debut for the Gold Coast Suns after recovering from an ACL injury.
Suns’ Physio Lindsay Bull said: “He’s been training with the group for the last few weeks so he’ll be available for selection this weekend.”
Ned Reeves (AF $245k SC $123k RUCK) is set to be available for selection this week for the Hawks after recovering well from an ankle injury sustained at training.
Hawthorn’s Physical Performance Manager Luke Boyd: “Ned has been able to recover quite well since then. He was able to join in a skills session today & he’s a chance to be right for this weekend’s game.”
James Worpel (AF $594k SC $396k MID) has accepted his one-match ban for a dangerous tackle. He will miss the clash with Essendon in Round 14.
Luke Shuey (AF $678k SC $508k MID) is set to play his first game of football since round 3 in the WAFL this weekend. This could impact the selection of Luke Edwards (AF $241k SC $117k MID).
North Melbourne’s team dynamic could be tweaked slightly in the coming weeks with Luke McDonald, Jed Anderson, and Jarrod Polec returning to training with a return in sight. This may impact Aaron Hall (AF $787k SC $530k D/F) and Jack Ziebell (AF $744k SC $521k D/F).
Tomorrow we will hear from Chris Scott and Stuart Dew, as well as receive updated injury lists across the league.
