AFL 2017 Round 17 - Gold Coast v Collingwood

Three SUNS leave Metricon Stadium on Saturday evening with injury concerns.

GM Football Operations, Marcus Ashcroft, confirmed to goldcoastfc.com.au post-match that Steven May, Jarryd Lyons and Jack Leslie will each undergo scans come Monday.

Captain May left the field in the first quarter of the SUNS’ match against Collingwood and played no further part in the 15-point defeat.

“Early assessment is he had a tight hamstring, didn’t have an episode, so didn’t actually strain anything,” Ashcroft said.

“We’re quite optimistic having looking at it again after the game.

“He’ll get a scan on Monday, we’re thinking at this stage one week but we’ll assess it as the week progresses.”

After injuring his ankle in the opening minutes Lyons courageously returned to the field, but after struggling through the second term he was unable to return in the second half.

“JL [Lyons] played out the second quarter in heaps of duress,” Ashcroft said.

“He’s got some bone bruising on that ankle, early stages a three to four week injury.

“We’ll get some scans on Monday but hopefully not as long as that.”

Earlier on Saturday defender Leslie suffered a leg injury during the NEAFL team’s convincing win over Redland.

“Jack landed awkwardly in the last quarter, came off, didn’t take any further part in the game,” Ashcroft said.

“[ We were] really worried about what might be damage wise to his leg, so we got it scanned, came back clear.

“We’ll look at him on Monday and see how he pulls up, but hopefully with a clear scan he’ll be right for next week.”

goldcoastfc.com.au will provide a further update on May, Lyons and Leslie in Tuesday’s Optomo Injury Report.
