It looks like the season could be over for Gold Coast Suns’ skipper Gary Ablett as he was injured in his team’s 45-point loss to the Adelaide Crows at the Adelaide Oval on July 25. Ablett suffered a left knee injury in the match and had to be taken out of the contest. Ablett was going after the football close to the boundary line in the first quarter when his Matt Shaw collided with him and fell into the captain’s leg. Fans and bettors should be sure to look over the CrownBet AFL Odds before making their next wager.
Ablett limped around the field and eventually made his way to the Gold Coast dressing room. He was then subbed out of the fixture soon after. After the game, Gold Coast confirmed to the media that Ablett had done damage to his meniscus. However, they didn’t know how serious the injury was and will wait until Ablett undergoes more medical scans before releasing a statement. The CrownBet AFL Odds are available to punters all season long.
According to the Suns’ head coach Rodney Eade, the club expects Ablett to miss about three to four matches, which would basically see him out of action for the remainder of the 2015 term. Eade told the press, “It looks like a meniscus, which is cartilage. It’s on the medial side which is better news, so you would think those would be three to four weeks. It’s nothing major, but we’ll have to wait for the scans and then we’ll work it out from there.” Don’t forget to look over the latest CrownBet AFL Odds before making your footy picks for the next round.
Eade added that there won’t be any pressure placed on the 31-year-old Ablett to return to the side before the season ends. The star midfielder has only been back with the team for a few weeks after recovering from a bad shoulder injury. Ablett’s knee bended backwards after Shaw fell into him and he couldn’t put any weight on the leg after the incident. Ablett has been in fine form since returning to Gold Coast earlier in the season. He’s averaged over 30 disposals an outing since the 14th round. Before you make your picks for the Suns or any other footy team, don’t forget to check out the up-to-date CrownBet AFL Odds.
