Interleague unlikely for Tiger

A BROKEN nose suffered in Colac’s nail-biting win over Bell Park may cost big man Lochie Veale a chance to represent the GFL.

Veale went to hospital during the Tigers’ clash with the Dragons, putting him in doubt for Saturday’s clash with Eastern at Etihad Stadium.

“(He) just copped a stray arm in a contest, and unfortunately for his nose it was going the wrong way for a fair while,” coach Kane Leersen told K rock’s The Wash Up.

“He snuck down to hospital and got it snapped back into place.

“I haven’t talked to him specifically about it, but it looked pretty sore and a couple of black eyes.

“I’d say he wouldn’t mind the week off just to get it right.”
