Injury Update: May 17

Werribee recruits Isaac Miller and Billy Crofts could soon be available to play their first games as fully fledged Tigers after sitting out the start of the season with injury.

Miller played one game with the Tigers’ development side last year before formally signing with the club, but the former Bendigo Pioneer is yet to manage a game in the time since after suffering a broken wrist.

Crofts is also a recent graduate of the TAC Cup system as one of a handful of former Western Jets snapped up by Werribee in the off season and has so far been sidelined with a broken thumb.

Tigers stalwart Nathan Laracy is also closing in on a return to football after more than a year on the sidelines, having suffered a serious knee injury in round one last year.

In less positive news, both Jordan Jones and Matthew Brett will need to undergo tests later in the week to determine their immediate playing availability.

Jones emerged from Saturday’s win over Collingwood with foot soreness, while Brett suffered a knock to the knee in the development team’s loss to the Box Hill Hawks on Sunday.
