A mounting injury list to key players is threatening to derail the North-West Thunder’s SEABL finals campaign before it even starts.

Star import Garrett Jackson is the latest to go down, with an ankle injury picked up at training on Thursday night seeing him miss Saturday night’s game against Geelong.

With fellow starterBrad Simspon and back-up big man Lucas Simpson sidelined with back injuries, the Thunderwere no match for the experienced Supercats line-up, losing 104-72.

Complicating matters even further is Jackson’s ambition to play at NBL level which saw him fly to Sydney early last week for a trial with the Kings.

He is scheduled to head back up to the Harbour City again this week for another try-out and is in a race against time to be able to perform at his best.

The situation has left coach Phil Thomas with a threadbare playing roster that is still clinging to fourth spot on the South conference ladder and faces Sandringham on the road this Sunday.

“Garrett twisted his ankle and hopefully he’ll be fit for Sunday because we need him back on the floor,” Thomas said.

“The injury didn’t come at a good time for him.”

The Thunder’s injury list has also impacted the stocks available at training, with NWBU import players also flying home and not available to make up the numbers.

“We only had nine at trainingon Thursdaynight,and the standard takes a nose-dive,” Thomas said.

After Sandringham, the Thunder face another road trip against Geelong and Dandenong, before playing Nunawading at home.
