    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

    Takayasu has been suffering from back injuries pre basho and he took time out of the first half of the haru jungyo to try to rehabilitate it. So it's definitely not unreasonable to suggest he's perhaps still dealing with some residual pain.

    Should Enho ever use mitokorozeme (三所攻め) it's safe to say my heart would probably stop. I hope he gets that Gino-sho and many more in the years to come, we need a new waza no depaato!. Saying that Terutsuyoshi's awesome okurigake today would have shown Mainoumi up (glad they rechanged the kimarite on that one)
