14 Apr Injury crisis?
The Whites have been hit hard with injuries after only two rounds of the John I. Dent Cup. The injury list to first grade is: Sokai Tai, Dan Penca, Neori Nadruku, Carl Elliot, Brendan Spears and Danny Mathews. Add to that Tai Valeni and you would think there is a crisis in the club.
Yet with Mitch Douch back, Moa making for his debut, Tom G. Darmody ready to play, youngster Ben Gordon stepping up and the Jindabyne Viking , David Akkersdvk, biting at the bit the side will remain competitive.
The Moa and Lani combination adds another dimension to the attack, the Viking an enthusiasm and aggression,Darmody adds his experience and Douch at fullback will create some go-forward. Colt Gordon is as good as you get. Size, speed and a willingness to mix it. His dad playing fourth grade to do with a bit of all of that.
Uni-Norths gave Wests a dust up last weekend and with Brumby officer Daniel Hooper in charge they will prove to be very difficult at Campese Oval.
Obviously the other grades have been affected but there a few names starting to appear that give the club depth. Tim Macnamara, Rienhold Kamilaro, Chris McRoberts and Jack Edwards all add to the club.
Saturday night is theme night with 50 Shades of Grey likely to be outdone.
