Saints’ injury update

Good news to come from the Saints’ camp. Nick Riewoldt‘s rumoured injury scans have amounted to little, as can be seen in this article from today’s Herald Sun:

Nick Riewoldt is believed to have suffered a hamstring scare late in the loss to Hawthorn on Saturday night, but he has been declared fit after precautionary scans.

Lenny Hayes is also a chance to play after suffering a broken collarbone, but the bad news is that Jason Gram won’t play, due to a back complaint. This could set Lethal Leigh Fisher up for another 140+ score – but I’m not betting on it.

The real story, Dream Team-wise, is that Fergus Watts is in the squad that’s flown to Perth. This kid has always been a talent, and has really struggled with injuries for the last two seasons. But I know for a fact he was in the squad of last year’s Dream Team winner in the AFL comp – he is very highly rated. Keep your eye out.

Editor’s note: Tom, don’t forget Xavier Clarke, whose Windy Hill flu has magically transformed into a calf strain that will put him out for two to four weeks, and Clinton Jones who won’t recover from his collarbone injury for another month. Personally I am going to try never to draft a Saint ever again. 🙁
