Reconstructed Warner all the try-scoring Yass kneed

It's a long shot, but one Warner said they'd have a crack at - albeit in a relaxed manner.

Not that they're going to throw the ball around like a game of touch, but they'll play with the same freedom they've had over the last two weeks.

They can also take heart out of their 50-24 win over the Bulldogs in round nine.

"We're still a mathematical chance. It's a long shot, but you've got to be optimistic I suppose," Warner said.

"We need to win by at least 50. Hopefully I can help the team out and score a couple."

He had groin surgery a few years ago and then hurt his knee with about five weeks to go of the 2016 season when he was playing for Cootamundra.

The first diagnosis was it wasn't too bad and should only take about six weeks to heal, but when he moved to Yass and started training he found out it was a lot worse than originally thought.

He'd ruptured his posterior cruciate ligament and missed all of the 2017 campaign.

"I got to pre-season and I trained the first session and it still wasn't feeling too good so I went and got a second opinion and I had a ruptured PCL," Warner said.

Saturday: Goulburn Bulldogs v Yass Magpies at Goulburn, 2pm; Tuggeranong Bushrangers v Queanbeyan Blues at Greenway, 2.15pm; Woden Valley Rams v Belconnen United Sharks at Phillip, 3pm; West Belconnen Warriors v Queanbeyan Kangaroos at Holt, 3pm.
