Season over for Sarcevic

BELL Park will be without talented youngster Jack Sarcevic for the remainder of the GFL season following surgery on a broken wrist.

The former Geelong Falcon, who’d featured in every game this year, had four pins and a plate inserted to stabilise the wrist on Monday after suffering the break in the weekend win over Lara at Hi Sushi Oval.

“It was just an innocuous accident,” coach Shane Jack said. “He got tackled and taken to the ground, and it was just the way that he landed.

“He knew something was up straight away, came to the bench, and got taken straight to hospital.

Jack said it’s disappointing to see one of the Dragons’ brightest young talents sidelined.

“Young Jack’s been going really well for us this year,” Jack said. “He’s been one of the guys that’s been standing up and playing some good footy for us.

“He’s going to be sorely missed.

“I’ve spoken to him two or three times since the weekend, and we’ll get him involved doing stuff with the coaches and keep him involved.”

GFL: EAGLE ACCEPTS SUSPENSION

After breaking a four-game losing streak with its victory over the Cats, Bell Park will be chasing consecutive wins when it travels down Minvera Road to Drew Oval for a meeting with St Joseph’s.

Jackson Bright will return for his 200th GFL senior game, while Jackson Sheringham and Isaac Wareham are also a chance to take on Joeys.

16-year-old Rhys McWaters made his debut against Lara and is likely to retain his spot after 15 disposals and three tackles.

“He came in and played a really good game,” Jack said.

“It was great to give another young kid a go, and he’s got a bright future for us.”
