Colin Sylvia’s having a hard time of it down in the WAFL after the Freemantle Dockers’ player suffered a concussion last week. The Dockers’ sent Sylvia down to Peel Thunder of the WAFL back on February 5 as they felt he wasn’t in the proper shape to handle the pace of AFL football. He’s been trying to play his way back to the Freemantle squad, but the 29-year old has now hit another bump in the road. Sylvia suffered a quad injury during his opening practice match with the Swan Districts, but fortunately it was just a minor one. He was able to suit up the next week against Claremont, but his side was blown away by 115 points. Dockers’ fans may want to back their side this year with a CrownBet AFL Grand Final wager.
Peel didn’t play in the WAFL’s opening round since the team had a bye, but Sylvia missed their opening match in round two due to a calf problem. Peel dropped their opening contest, but have since won their last three straight. Sylvia managed to play in round three and had 17 touches. He then played in the fourth round against Perth and booted the game –winning goal to go along with 16 touches. However, he suffered a concussion last weekend in the first half against East Perth after four possessions and wasn’t able to return.

A spokesperson for Freemantle said Sylvia won’t be able to play for Peel against Claremont on April 26 since he failed his concussion test. The spokesman remarked,
Unfortunately he sustained a knock last weekend and was concussed. He has had follow-up tests this week, which he has failed and as a result is not available for selection.
Don’t let the 2015 footy season pass you by without making a CrownBet AFL Grand Final wager.
Sylvia seems to be a forgotten man in Freemantle since the midfielder isn’t listed on the team’s official list of injured players. The Dockers have given him a strict set of playing and training guidelines to abide by while he’s spending his time with Peel. However, he’s going to have a tough time making it back to the AFL with his latest injury and since he’s managed to appear in just two-and-a-half matches in the WAFL in the league’s first five weeks. The Dockers signed Sylvia at the conclusion of the 2013 season as a free agent from the Demons. He’s under contract with Freemantle until the end of next season. A CrownBet AFL Grand Final wager is the ideal way to back your picks for the big game this year.
