Maybe Moltzen will be the same?
I'm pretty sure you can't play without an ACL. I think players can play without a Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) or another type, but competent ACLs are absolutely neccessary.

probably more denial than anything

but i can't remember too many people go down like that untouched and not have major structural damage to the knee.

after reading ayshford was no chance,and seeing him out there without strapping around the knee,maybe we have found a new wonder drug.

Damn, I was really looking forward to seeing

7. Moltzen
6. Marshall

for an extended period of time (12+ Games), but looks like it won't happen this year :cry:

A bloke in my soccer team has kept on playing despite the doctors saying he needs a knee reconstruction. He hurt it playing rugby 5 weeks age. He iced it and did physio for a few weeks. He has seen the doctor and physiotherapist. Both say he has done his ACL. He has done tests that should mean an ACL-reco. Today he was running around like a made man like it never happened and his 100%.

Whether the doctors are wrong with my mate, or whether my mate is a rubber man, or whether there is a chance for Tim, is the question.

Bad, very bad, for our tigers. With Moltz at 7 we win. Does anyone know our win loss ratio with Moltz at 7. Seems we might struggle a bit unless Sheens finds a 7 quickly who can combine with Marshall. I hope super-coach doesn't have a brain explosion and put Marshall at 7. The injurey monster certanly seems to be beating up on us once again but this year we have some more depth so there is some cause for optomism. How do you think Tuiaki would go at 7. Ha Ha. Oh well we have a few very interesting weeks ahead.

No the doctors are probably correct that he has done his ACL but it doesnt mean that you cant keep playing, what it means though is that your stability in the knee is much less secure and therefore your more likely to do damage to the cartlige, lateral, medial or PCL. The thing that can help with a ruptured ACL is the overall strength of your Quads especially the VMO muscle which gives stability. However it is pretty crazy to keep playing as the chance of further damage is much more likely and there is no way that a first grade coach would allow his player to continue without the operation.

They must have interviewed him before the anaesthetic wore off.

One of my ACL's is shot and the surgeon said the same thing. It won't detract from your life as such, the risk of injury to that knee will be greater but as a whole it's not uncommon for people to play with the injury.

In Tim's case though, he's young, is a professional athlete, the advice best given is to get the surgery done.

There is some sort of revolutionary new practice which i think involves no operation and only some sort of rehab for ACLs. I'm not 100% sure on the details but i know there's at least 1 AFL player who's used it and got back within about 3 weeks, with no problems wewith mobility etc. I think an NRL player has also used it.
Maybe this is what Timmy's thinkinf? Also the only option is Lazarus at 7. Anything else would be a tragedy. If we have a super talented young halfback who's been contracted for a couple fo years but never played, killing it in lower grades, and an injury crisis at 7, he has to get a go. No players playing out of positions (and a good goal kicker to boot!)
