Hi it pains me to say it but I feel Richmond are the AFL leaders by a long way in terms of not having injuries itís like they totally avoid them they always seem to have a full list to choose from it happened in 2017 and 2018 and 2019 only concern is Lynch wow whatís their secret for too long Collingwood has always been injury prone not so much Richmond

How do we know this isn't just 2 years of dumb luck for them? (I don't know.)

Did you really need to start a new thread for this? There are about 17 other "Collingwood injury management" threads on here (at least one of them started by you in the last couple of days), already.

True, but we don't have a Richmond one. Now we do.

Does anyone have anything to say about Richmond?

All I know is their fitness guy has been around for much longer than the past two years. (The fitness guy is not the only one responsible for injuries, though.)

Martin, their best player by a long shot, was injured during last years finals.

But "a serious corked thigh with bleeding on the knee" sounds like an in-game collision injury that has nothing to do with fitness or medical staff.
S'pose you could blame them for not preventing the bleeding on the knee, but...

Itís nothing more than dumb luck. If you pick a small sample size, then you can always find someone who has had less ( or more ) injuries than the rest of the competition.
Pick a bigger sample size and the clubs at either end of that scale will be different again.
Remember, Richmond chose to play injured players ( Martin, Astbury ) in the finals last year because they couldnít trust their depth players to do a better job. We all know the end result ( of course we would have smashed them anyway but they were injured and itís on Richmond for playing them )

It was the correct decision to play them. The guy in line to replace Astbury...
Garthwaite... Hmm....

Indeed and add Rioli: he too was carrying an injury and was not match fit.

However, facts shouldn't get in the way of a good whinge.

Well, their injuries for two years have been tiny compared with all their competitors. The question is whether it's just dumb luck.

When Conca (fringe player, anyway) went down, you could hear his screams on the broadcast. And then he didn't even need surgery.

Agree with all those who point out that when Martin and Astbury were debilitated, we were able to smash them, exposing their weakness in depth. When finally injury and illness hit them, in spades within a small space of time, they were shellacked. Think it proves just how much how our constant stream of misfortune steeled us into a hardened unit capable of resisting adversity to a much greater extent than them. As soon as random misfortune struck them, they were massively disarmed.

one of the reasons we beat Richmond last year is that they were all banged up in September and ran out of steam. Didn't you notice that Dustin Martin couldn't get out of a walk. All clubs get hit. We just happen to have a half dozen players who favor Dr Dre's mega album....

They've sold a lot of their depth to get Lynch this year.

We'll see if it pays off.
