Gaz to miss QClash

August 10, 2017 12:47 PM

SUNS TV: Solomon Presser Interim senior coach Dean Solomon speaks to the media for the first time.
He’s heavily invested in this footy club and I can’t be more impressed with the attitude he’s shown.

Champion midfielder Gary Ablett will not take to the field on Saturday for Gold Coast’s Round 21 match with Brisbane Lions.

As reported in the Optomo Injury Report on Wednesday, Ablett has had a frustrating two months with hamstring issues and has been given every opportunity to recover throughout the week.

However, interim senior coach Dean Solomon confirmed the news to media in his press conference on Thursday. 

“Gaz will miss this week, it’s his opposite side, its his right leg this time,” Solomon said.

“The pathology has shown there is a little tear.

“He’ll miss this week, but I’ve just spoken to him then and he’s really keen to push hard for next week.

“His attitude has been amazing over the last 48 hours, had a good conversation with him yesterday.

Solomon revealed Ablett had taken an active role at training on Thursday and the coaching staff would look to utilise the midfielder’s knowledge at QClash on Saturday. 

“He was taking drills today, which is great from Gaz,” Solomon said.

“I want to really lean on him and his experience in around football to educate our players, this weekend at half time and after the game, both at NEAFL and AFL level.

“He has buy in, he wants to do that, he’s heavily invested in this footy club and I can’t be more impressed with the attitude he’s shown.”
