Is it called The 9s because that's how many of your starting XIII will be available after this pre-season massacre?

Bollocks.I think “the 9s carry greater injury risk” stems from one lone injury-Lachlan Coote.
The 9s total matches are played over less minutes than trial matches-that alone will mean more injuries at the trials.
It would be too hard to find the answer to this-but seems like common sense to me, where the highest injury tally would be..no research needed.
But not every player plays every trial, or as a full game.For the 9s-if our team is to make it to the grand final we’ll play a maximum of 90 minutes footy total..only 36 minutes if no finals.
3 trial games=240 minutes
More risk from playing the trials.
Also the 9s are usually played at a nice stadium, nice field....trial matches can be played at country grounds, sometimes not so good fields-probably more injuries come from playing on bad fields.
People are saying don’t play in the 9s and insinuating there is greater risk of injury at the 9s-but why?But not every player plays every trial, or as a full game.
When there was a trial here in mackay a couple of years ago, there was only 6 (maybe 8) regular first graders playing. They also have unlimited interchange & players were coming off & on after about 10 mins on a regular rotation. After halftime a complete different side took the field. And i dont believe the defence is as hard as regular games, as all sides want to field the best team come R1, so no one wants injuries.
Do they play 3 trials???? I thought it was generally only 2.
As the 9s is a special event, with substantial prize money (so i believe) & stature, most teams are going to be trying fairly hard to win (as we did in 2014) so I dont think you can say Trials or 9's will have less or more injuries, it most likely comes down to dumb shit luck.
I mean how may injuries happen during warm ups or training sessions????
Nobody has said that.People are saying don’t play in the 9s
Or that.and insinuating there is greater risk of injury at the 9s
Oh, that's easy: you like the Nines and mistakenly thought that I was against it. Despite my protestations and without double-checking, you have been acting as if that was the case ever since.but why?
