Defeated Hawks left mark on Cats, says Scott JOHN VAN KLAVEREN CATS coach Chris Scott is worried about the injury impact of last weekâ€™s Hawthorn clash despite looming opponent North Melbourne losing its past seven against Geelong. Scott highlighted as concerns the Catsâ€™ six-day break and leg injuries to forwards Steve Johnson and Mathew Stokes. â€œAre we going to be affected because of the hard game, probably, but weâ€™ve got to be able to rise above that,â€? Scott told a media conference this week. â€œThereâ€™s a physical component to it but theyâ€™re a pretty resilient group and have been through that before. â€œIâ€™d back our people in to be as well-prepared as possible. On the mental side I have no doubts. â€œBut we wonâ€™t know for sure until Sunday afternoon.â€? Scott said the club would closely monitor leg injuries to Johnson and Stokes. â€œSteveâ€™s corky is significant, it affected him a little bit but I expect him to be okay. â€œStokes also got a cork really early in the game. I wouldnâ€™t be surprised if it affected him, even though he says it didnâ€™t. â€œWeâ€™ll do everything we can to make sure we know theyâ€™re right, which is why we have a conservative policy. â€œThat was the case with Orren (Stephenson) last weekend and maybe the case with others this weekend.â€? Scott said he expected Stephenson to play as part of the Catsâ€™ preferred structure of two strong key forwards and two ruckmen. Youngster George HorlinSmith was â€œreally closeâ€? to senior selection, Scott said. â€œHe was perhaps our 24th player last week and heâ€™s pushing hard again.â€? Scott expected speedy pair David Wojcinski and Travis Varcoe to return via the VFL in the next two to three weeks.
BY CHERIE DONNELLAN AN ANGLESEA postman who crashed a delivery motorbike in a stunt jump this week â€œno longer works for Australia Postâ€?, the organisation has confirmed. A spokesperson for Australia Post said the company had â€œzero tolerance (for) any unsafe behaviourâ€?. â€œWe are extremely disappointed by this incident,â€? the spokesperson said. â€œAustralia Post takes a matter like this extremely seriously and the person involved no longer works for us.â€? The postie in his 20s was filmed attempting to jump a makeshift ramp in his Australia Post uniform on his bossâ€™ motorbike during delivery rounds on Tuesday. The man was reported to have told his boss he hit a kangaroo when questioned about damage to the bike. Video footage of the â€œAir Mailâ€? stunt received hundreds of hits on Youtube after a tradesman who built the ramp uploaded the footage this week. The video was captioned: â€œwe built a jump for the postie and he hit it hard. Didnâ€™t turn out so well for the postie or the bikeâ€?. The footage showed the postie speeding toward the ramp, flying
