Bad things in threes: injury report from R3, 2010

1 tombstone, 10 red crosses, 3 hazard signs, 28 band-aids and two pows. What a week for fantasy football coaches.

AFL Rd 3 - Saints v Magpies

I have copied and pasted the report that appears on the front page of FanFooty under the scores on the weekend. I think I’ll start doing this every week on the blog, so that you lot can discuss the implications of the round’s injuries.
