Worst fears confirmed for Eagle

NEWTOWN & Chilwell young gun Alex Cincotta is facing 12 months on the sidelines after scans confirmed he has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament.

The 23-year-old suffered the injury during Geelong VFL’s match simulation with GFL premier St Mary’s at GMHBA Stadium on Wednesday night.

It’s disappointing news for Cincotta after a breakout 2019 season which earned him an invite to the State Combine.

As well as starring for the Eagles, he earned Vic Country selection and featured in AFL Victoria’s Young Guns Series.
