Pre Season Friendlies 2021

Trouble is if Massey and Keane. miss preseason. They are playing catch up. Not ideal. Was always a big risk. With Keane. With his record.
I agree it's not ideal but at least their role is providing depth instead of starting as they did in the past. As things stand Massey will barely get game time even fully healed.

TBH John, if Massey is as injury prone as we think maybe playing him in a low level friendly is not the way forward as he might pick up another. Probably better to let him continue on his own training regime and blood him later on in the campaign when fully fit.
I have to say, with some of the crunching tackles going in last night (from both teams), it was a "friendly" in name only.

It's really strange how the official site only mentioned the game this morning if we had it booked at least a week ago and we're planning to use the first team.

Could've had a good following but I suspect a lot of people who would've gone had no idea it was on or didn't get enough notice to get organised. Shame really.
