Melbourne’s first-half struggles came on Thursday night after a 28-point defeat to Giloong, when the club looked at the injured Clyton Oliver’s thumb again.
Oliver was accidentally handcuffed by Joel Selwood but played the game, although he was suffering from pain at all levels.
The star, who is one of the favorites of the Bronze Medal and was awarded last week’s seven-year $ 7 million contract extension by blockbuster, is a huge setback for the Premier League.

Demon coach Simon Goodwin said the club had only Oliver’s injury but hoped to see how he would recover in the coming days.
Herald Sun journalist Ron Ralph Oliver says that if the thumb is actually broken, it does not necessarily mean it has been sidelined for a long time.
Ralph told Fox Foot after the match:
“The good news is that surgery can only be missed for a week with a broken thumb. You will need to enter a PIN in it, and that can take four to six weeks.
Melbourne scored 63 points against Geolongs.
Scores are due to the fact that Melbourne’s Achilles heel is constantly changing its face in search of the best formula in the second half of the season.
Dees has scored just six points in the top 50 and is being investigated by Geolong-Melbourne for team-first thinking.
Their half-struggles did not help them to attack, much to the chagrin of many poor inputs, including long bombs that did not feature Christian Petraka.
“Petraka exploded the ball three or four times tonight and hit the ball, this is different from Christian. Where is this beat going? ”Russian legend David King recounts a vision of one of his changes to Zach Tuhi in the 50’s.
“I was shocked when I saw him. It’s all good. Just put the ball inside.
“I don’t know what their perfect mix was in the past 50’s – and I think this is the biggest headache for Simon Goodwin now.”
Hawthorn legend Jason Dunstal adds: “You may not understand what the best blend is right now. They tried their height, it didn’t work.
“I think maybe that contributes to the confusion of the players, trying not to say, ‘I don’t want to hit everything for Ben Brown. But what are the alternatives? ‘
However, Dunstal put Melbourne’s goal-scoring problem ahead of anything else on the field and on the ball.
“(Gaun and Jackson) can certainly play a role in the future, but I think you have to go back to the players, ‘he said.’ Take that extra step to see what the best option is.
There was a lot of reference pressure tonight and sometimes players hit it off a little faster than they wanted to and maybe this affects decision-making. But some in the 50’s were poor.
