Bombers can still play finals: Hird

A defiant James Hird says finals are still very much on the agenda for under-performing Essendon this season.

The Bombers sit in 13th place with just four wins from 11 matches as they resume after the their bye, but Hird is adamant his side can turn things around despite a raft of injuries and recent poor form.

Hird spoke to reporters on Tuesday and said his trip to France over the bye round was a non-issue given he missed just one training session and a pool recovery session.
