Magpies set to unleash de Goey for opener


//

The biggest goal for teams during the AFL's pre-season is for its star players to get through the JLT Series unscathed.

While this year's tournament saw some of the game's biggest stars get through the tournament injury-free, such as Essendon's Joe Daniher, there were still some unfortuante injuries.

Arguably the biggest injury news in the pre-season came out of St Kilda as Patrick McCartin was hospitalised after yet another concussion, before Dylan Roberton suffered another heart scare.

There was also tragic news for the Gold Coast Suns, with No.3 pick Izak Rankine suffering a hamstring tendon tear in the Suns' JLT 2 clash.

With all of the JLT Series action in the books, here's each club's injury list ahead of Round 1.

Brodie Smith

Adelaide

Jordan Galluci (Foot) - Test
Elliott Himmelberg (Foot) - Test
Andrew McPherson (Groin) - 1 week
Luke Brown (Ankle) - 7 weeks

The Crows are in pretty decent shape considering the club's spate of injuries in 2018. Adelaide will be glad to have seen both Brodie Smith and Brad Crouch not only get through the pre-season, but exhibit the form that made them vital parts of the Crows' setup.

Marcus Adams

Brisbane

Tom Fullarton (Hamstring) - Test
Darcy Gardiner (Knee) - Test
Connor McFadyen (Foot) - Test
Nick Robertson (Hamstring) - Test
Marcus Adams (Knee) - 3 weeks
Brandon Starcevich (Hamstring) - 3-4 weeks
Jack Payne (Shin) - 5-6 weeks

The biggest news for the Lions is when the club will be able to see new recruit Marcus Adams. The good news is that Adams is back running after his knee injury and shouldn't miss too much of the Lions' home and away season.

Matthew Kreuzer

Carlton

Matthew Kennedy (Shoulder) - Test
Matthew Kreuzer (Knee) - Test
Darcy Lang (Foot) - TBC
Harrison Macreadie (Back) - TBC
Caleb Marchbank (Back) - TBC
Tom Williamson (Back) - Test
Sam Docherty (Knee) - Indefinite
Jarrod Pickett (Knee) - Indefinite

The Blues will have their eyes on whether star ruckman Matthew Kreuzer is ready to go for Round 1. Kreuzer has gradually built up his loads after knee surgery in January to be a 50-50 chance for the season opener and is a vital to the club's success in 2019 after his 12 games last season.

Jordan de Goey

Collingwood

Ben Reid (Quad) - TBC
Daniel Wells (Foot) - 1-2 weeks
Lynden Dunn (Knee) - 1-2 weeks
Tim Broomhead (Leg) - 1-2 weeks
Will Hoskin-Elliott (Knee) - 2-3 weeks
Taylor Adams (Finger) - 3-4 weeks
Matt Scharenberg (Knee) - Indefinite

Perhaps the biggest news for the Magpies is two names currently not on this list in Jordan de Goey and Jaidyn Stephenson. Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley has said he expects both to be fit for the club's Round 1 clash against Geelong. Adams and Hoskin-Elliott will remain on the sidelines, but Dunn and Wells have made progress.

Joe Daniher

Essendon

Tom Jok (Concussion) - Test
Mason Redman (Ankle) - 1 week
Martin Gleeson (Ankle) - 1 week
Matt Dea (Knee) - 4-5 weeks
Cale Hooker (Calf) - 4-5 weeks
Josh Begley (Knee) - TBC
Kobe Mutch (Ankle) - TBC

The Bombers have confirmed that Joe Daniher (groin) will be on modified minutes in the club's Round 1 clash against the Giants. Orazio Fantasia (quad), Dyson Heppell (hamstring) and Zach Merrett (ankle) are all expected to line up after injury-interrupted pre-seasons.

Fremantle captain Nathan Fyfe

Harley Bennell (Calf) - TBC
Brennan Cox (Hamstring) - TBC
Connor Blakely (Hamstring) - TBC

The Docker suffered a blow with promising big man Brennan Cox suffering a hamstring injury in JLT 2 against the Eagles. However, the biggest news is that Nat Fyfe is a certain starter for Fremantle in Round 1 after missing both pre-season games.

Zach Tuohy

Geelong

Scott Selwood (Hamstring) - Test
Nakia Cockatoo (Adductor) - Test
Zac Smith (Knee) - 1-2 weeks
Zach Tuohy (Knee) - 1-2 weeks
Jed Bews (Groin) - 1-2 weeks
Lachie Fogarty (Hip) 2-3 weeks

Tuohy missed all of the Cats' pre-season matches and is extremely unlikely to suit up against Collingwood in Round 1. Selwood faces an uphill battle to break into the Cats' Round 1 side but will play a VFL practice match this weekend.

Izak Rankine

Gold Coast

Josh Corbett (Knee) - 1-2 weeks
Corey Ellis (Groin) - 1-2 weeks

Harrison Wigg (Knee) - Season
Aaron Young (Ankle) - TBC

The Suns came into the pre-season facing a tough 2019 season and things got worse with the JLT injuries to Rankine and Young. In some welcome good news, former Tiger Ellis could be available for round one but is yet to play a pre-season match.

Josh Kelly

Greater Western Sydney

Nick Haynes (Back) - 1-2 weeks
Callan Ward (Knee) - 4-5 weeks
Zac Langdon (Foot) - 4-5 weeks
Jonathan Patton (Knee) - 8-10 weeks

The Giants were dealt a major blow after inspirational midfielder Callan Ward suffered a knee injury in JLT 1 against Sydney. GWS remains confident that star midfield pair Josh Kelly and Jacob Hopper will be fit to go against Essendon in Round 1 despite sitting out the JLT Series.

Jacob Koschitzke (Finger) - Test
Chad Wingard (Calf) - 1-2 weeks
Kaiden Brand (Ankle) - TBC
Grant Birchall (Knee) - Indefinite

Tom Mitchell (Leg) - Season

The Hawks possess perhaps the AFL's most star-studded injury list with Mitchell, Scully, Wingard and Birchall all out for Round 1. The good news for Hawthorn fans is that Jack Gunston is likely to be in the lineup for the clash against the Crows after missing both JLT matches.

Jacob Townsend (Thigh) - 1-2 weeks
Tom Lynch (PCL) - 2-4 weeks
Josh Caddy (Ankle) - 3-7 weeks
Shaun Grigg (Knee) - Indefinite

The big focus in Tigerland will be the health of Lynch and Castagna whose absences will leave the Richmond forward line depleted, particularly with Caddy a while off. Vlaustin and Grimes picked up slight knocks in JLT 2 but are likely to be fit for Round 1.

Patrick McCartin

St Kilda
