AFL – Essendon coach John Worsfold (pictured) says he has no option but to get on it with after losing twelve players to suspension on Monday.

Worsfold is faced with the task of uniting the decimated Bombers squad while recruiting the players he’ll need with the NAB cup now just weeks away.

Significantly, Worsfold will be without much of his leadership group for the season but the former West Coast mentor knows there is only way forward for the club if it is to remain a viable force in the AFL
