    If I am, I might celebrate with a nice Hunter semillon. Or a McLaren Vale shiraz, if the weather is cool enough. Maybe a Coonawarra cab sav.

    Reading about GWS' Zac Williams torn Achilles tendon at training illustrates just how precarious the pre-season can be in shaping the run for a premiership. The loss of Wilson to Freo was mitigated by having Williams on the list, who played a similar role and was equally as good with his run off halfback.

    The first month or so of our fixture is tough and we need to have a good run of luck on the injury front leading up the the start of the season. We don't want a repeat of last year.

    I would argue that Zac Williams is even more valuable that Wilson because his delivery and run are so devastating. He just cuts teams apart and unlike a player like Johanison he just can't be intimidated. He is also very good defensively. It is not their backline that stops them from being a premiership side it is the lack of two way running of their mids and forwards. He can play so many roles too, back, mid, outside mid. Without that run they are going to have to try switching another mid back there or playing a raw player.

    Yep
    They will need to adjust gws

    But back to us.......we don’t want to play them fully fit in a finals game if we don’t have too unless they are missing key players asnoer above
