Biography

Jamie Elliott and Levi Greenwood had to delay surgery after injuries dating back to last season, while Alex Fasolo suffered a shoulder injury at the start of pre-Season. In each case, pies initially go down the rest and recuperation path before eventually opting for surgery. You can be aggressive with surgical intervention, but it is for doctors and physios to decide what the right course of action is, Buckley say. Ashley Browne for AFL. Com. Au Greenwood sprained his medial ligament in Round 20 and the Club decided to rest, rather than opting for post-Season surgery. Greenwood, 28, had trained throughout pre-Season but felt pain in his knee. Surgery, to medial ligament, is relatively minor, but it should allow Levi to fully recover and play and train pain free. We expect him to be back running inside six weeks, football manager Geoff Walsh say. Dinny Navaratnam for AFL. Com. Au you put in big pre-Season, you get to the end of the line and then you hurt yourself, which is quite frustrating, Greenwood say. Greenwood made his return through VFL in June after eight weeks on the sidelines and two separate setbacks, to his ankle and pre-existing foot complaint, which delayed his return even further. I wasn't patient with it, Greenwood say. I want to come back as soon as possible. I had a couple of setbacks so they put me back a couple of weeks. Once it got to eight or 10 weeks, I was like, 'I just want to play, now'. But I come back and probably push it a little bit too hard. Last training session before I came back, I twisted it bit and set myself back two weeks. I'm feeling fit now and as other guys get tired towards the end of the year, hopefully I can toe rope a little bit there and run out Games pretty well. Ben Guthrie for AFL. Com. Au even though I do have a full season at North, I do find that I was getting pushed out a bit and we go very deep in the middle, and just four-year security was a big motivator as well, Greenwood say. Them showing faith of four years in me put pressure back on me and I definitely want to give something back now. Peter Ryan for AFL. Com. Au no one's been squeezed out because of people who have arrived at North Melbourne, North Melbourne Football boss Geoff Walsh say. Commerciality of AFL world say that players out of contract have the opportunity to field offers. Currency that Levi was provided by his form this year say that there were a number of clubs interested in him, and demand for his services was such that he was able to take offer at top of the tree.
