  • All the best James.



  • Hope it is a clean break, and doesn’t require a plate, all the best mate.



  • Tragic news wish him a speedy recovery and a relaxing off season after watching the club in the semis



  • All the best to him. At least he will have plenty of recovery time in the off season



  • Does anyone know roughly how long a broken jaw takes to heal?



  • Broken in two places apparently



  • He’s done, poor guy. Would have had a rough nights sleep last night.



  • Poor bloke may as well get his nose fixed up as well now.



  • Unfortunately Teddy has been copping it like this in every game he’s played. Now the injury that we all feared. I blame the refs for not being tougher on this sort of play. When a top player gets the ball and is bending over or not up straight, that is when the hits happen and they are all too often claimed as accidental. Rubbish, they know that is exacting when to get them up high. And they do.

    All the best Teddy

  • All the best Teddy. Come back better next season, Tigers need you!



  • Been copping high shots all year. Ironically this was not intended.
    Thats why we need a couple of loose canons up front. Sure these days opponents may think ah its to pro these days he won’t get me but they can’t be sure so they stay honest.
    Refs won’t do it I reckon they have been told to let more go because there is a shortage of quality players so they don’t want to many suspended.
    Didn’t see teddy coping many when we had Marty Blair Thompson and Gavet up front.
    Our young guys need protection.

    Very sad for Teddy wish him the speediest recovery.
