Gary Ablett Out for Rd 20
News came this arvo that Gold Coast midfielder Gary Ablett would miss this week with a hamstring injury. In the last roster match of the season and with over 100,000 teams with the little master, is it a silly idea to trade him? Hmm…
Gary Ablett will miss this week with a hamstring injury, meaning he isn’t there for our last roster game and he won’t be making the trip back home to Kardinia Park.
Here are the facts:
- hamstring was injured a fortnight ago against Collingwood and he didn’t pull up to well.
- Gazza said that he “should be right” for the last 4 games.
I think we all picked him this year knowing he may miss a game or two in the run home… but when it is getting to crunch time, it makes things very interesting. This round we will be missing Matthew Boyd (in over 85,000 teams) thanks to his bye and there is probably some more carnage to come as well. Luke Hodge is no certainty to return and Sam Mitchell is listed as a test after going over on his ankle last weekend.
Is it worth a trade? If you’re fighting to make the 8, then yes! Get rid of him! He’s worth $393,400 and you can ‘almost’ straight swap him with Tom Rockliff, Dale Thomas or Matt Priddis who should all be solid over the last 5 games.
We’re interested to see what people are going to do with Gazza!
