AFL 2015 Training - Gold Coast 171215

We anticipate that Jarrad will be in a position to play in our final NAB challenge match of the pre-season

Gold Coast SUNS forward Jarrad Grant will be restricted to running duties in the lead up to the NAB Challenge after fracturing a bone in his wrist.

Grant had surgery on Australia Day to repair the damage and is expected to be available for the GC SUNS final NAB Challenge match against Adelaide at Metricon Stadium on Friday March 11.

General Manager – Football Operations, Marcus Ashcroft said Grant injured his wrist whilst cycling.

“Jarrad injured his wrist after he came off his bike during a cycling session on Saturday morning. Scans that afternoon revealed he had fractured a bone in his wrist and he had surgery on Tuesday to insert a pin.

“We anticipate that Jarrad will be in a position to play in our final NAB challenge match of the pre-season, but fortunately he will be able to maintain his fitness base during his time in rehabilitation,” Ashcroft said.

The Gold Coast claimed the former Bulldog as a delisted free agent in November. Grant played 19 games in 2015, including the elimination final loss to Adelaide.
