not only that, coniglio, davis and Patful also missing for weekshttp://www.afl.com.au/news/injury-news/injury-listStephen Coniglio Shoulder 2-3 weeksPhil Davis Ankle 6-8 weeksTim Mohr Knee TBCShane Mumford Ankle SeasonJoel Patfull Lung/ribs 6-8 weeksJonathon Patton Knee TBCAdam Tomlinson Toe weeksUpdated: Tuesday, June 16
McCarthy has played at CHB before and Jezza could dominate back there. Patton returning will see one of the others go into defence.
Young draftee Jack Steele is among a number of NEAFL players who could be elevated this week to cover a raft of injuries in the GIANTSâ€™ senior sideForward Rhys Palmer (33 touches) performed well for the second consecutive week while defenders Aidan Corr and Caleb Marchbank also impressed.
So who will be the go to ruck for the rest of the season? Need someone cheap for R3 in my DT.

Personally, he reminds me of Shaun Hampson, can ruck not as good around the ground which is something we all know Mummy excels in. Phillips will also have to take on Goldy this week if he gets the nod, so if he gets well beaten (likely), they've got Downie and Lobb waiting to get a call up. I'd rather them pick either or both of those two, but idk, it doesn't seem likely.
Have had Downie sitting at R3 in SC myself (cheapest of the three) hoping he would get the nod if this happened... still hope.
