I agree, my medical research, judging by the angle of the strike and the colour of the grass where his head hit. I would recommend 4 weeks.
Thanks Dr Spacey, I would get a second opinion, but wait, one will come......

I find it amusing that we’ve all become overnight doctors and are attributing his concussion last week to last nights one. He copped a stray elbow to the head ffs. A concussion last week or not wasn’t going to stop him from being put to sleep. It was a nasty blow that he wasn’t expecting.

I think we can all agree that the best thing for Morgo is a couple of weeks on the sideline, as well as extensive testing to ensure there is no long lasting effects or risks moving forward for him.
When was the last time you made a post that wasn’t directed at how wrong you think people are?

Most of, if not all of the comments are not wrong based on what I’ve read/seen regarding concussion. Sure, he might have been knocked out last night even if he didn’t have the headknock last week. He also might have taken that knock a week before his other headknock and had little effect. We’ll never know.

At the end of the day, I don’t doubt the doctors would’ve legitimately cleared him in time for origin. He’d have to have met benchmarks before getting cleared. Unfortunately, the second concussion will likely make those benchmarks harder for him to reach. But again, who knows? The doctors can’t even be sure.

I’m expecting it to be a lengthy time off. These independent brain doctors don’t have any reason to get him back earlier than they need to. Which is both unfortunate and beneficial for him.

I wonder how Morgo is feeling. I know he won't be playing but would be good to have him on board this week, as politically incorrect that is to say.

In that video I linked above Hannay says he is in good spirits and will meet up with the team in Sydney. He and Moose stayed down there.

Would be poor form, I hope not. Wouldn't mind if they put Hess on the bench and dropped Bolts although he was also good last game
I'd like Hess to go to ISC for a week or two. Not as a punishment for playing poorly, just to remind him how good he is at punching through holes. Leave Wright were he is.

I'm assuming we are going to have mcguire at nine some point during the game. Asiata and McGuire are both apart of the spine...

F*** it Hess to fullback
