There must be an investigation into the injuries alone, something must be drastically wrong with the club to have so many injuries and continuously. Is there something wrong with the diet, the way the players trainned or anything else? We must get to the bottom of this.

Lawrence, Woods, Halatau, Farah and Brooks can sit down for the season.
We cannot, because of salary cap restrictions! :crazy

Yes, I agree that we need to do something about keeping up with the latest training technology in order to give our players the best opportunity to play injury free and at their best. Even though this would help our cause, most of of our injuries seem to be from contact and there's nothing that I know of that would help in those cases.

First, let me wish Keith all the best for quick and full recovery.
Certainly many of the injuries this year have been freakish. Nonetheless, the problems raised in other posts re our strength and conditioning department need to be addressed.
The state of our current staff and facilities has presumably been part of the Smith review. Hopefully, we'll see recommendations that can be implemented in a timely fashion.

Funny how when they play (Anasta, Lulia, Lawrence etc.) they are duds, yet when they are injuried we long for their presence..

Without resorting to conspiracy theory, I'd like te club to also have better forensic capabilities - how many players would be playing when they really shouldn't be, from a medical standpoint... - and also when recruting...

terrible bad luck for Keith.
the most important thing here is the long term health and well being of Keith.
we sometimes forget that footy is just a game.
I would rather see him, take as long as required to get over this injury, then rush back, in an attempt to help the team and suffer further damage.
