    https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2019111400304&g=spo This jiji article might clear things up a bit. It mentions something called 'ショパール関節' I wonder if this could be Chopart's joint? (aka Transverse tarsal?)

    Looks like Wakatakakage's campaign is now over...his Oyakata has revealed he will be kyuujo from day 5 citing a right ankle injury. https://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/news/2019/11/13/kiji/20191113s00005000349000c.html

    Masaru is, as we in NE England would say, a well meaning Gobshite. I actually enjoyed his little bout recreation's...most amusing Great to see Hakuyozan back and grabbing a first win after that horrendous injury.

    Tomorrow Enho faces Shohozan. Can someone please ring the Port of Tyne Authority and warn them there may be a flood... The taping today around his thigh will do nothing if it really is a hamstring injury. Taking Shimanoumi head on earlier may not have been the best tactic (can't fault his fighting spirit) , I fear he's only making things worse however...

    Nikkan has a little bit of info about Enho's injury (sort of). When asked in the shitaku-beya about the location of the pain he replied he didn't know the exact specific location..its just hurts from his thigh to his shin. He experienced something 'pull' or 'stretch' whilst he was trying to attempt a throw (sounds like a hamstring injury?)https://www.nikkansports.com/m/battle/sumo/news/201905240000961_m.html?mode=all
