Roy thought outside the square and halfway through the first quarter, he was stoked with his punt on Tristan Xerri as his second ruck. Unfortunately, a cruel ankle injury saw him subbed out and Roy was scrambling.

He had to think ahead to next week so he decided to take in close to $500,000 in order to go back to Tim English, his preferred ruck.

The coach of destROY also lost Josh Kelly to concussion, making both of this week's trades forced ones.
