Two players will be a test for the Round 2 NAB AFLW match against Collingwood on the weekend.

Kalinda Howarth had an innocuous fall in the warmup prior to the Round 1 match against Melbourne but was cleared and played out the game.

SUNS AFLW Head Physiotherapist Aaron Duffy said the injury to her shoulder was minor and no cause for concern.

“Kalinda had a fall in the warm-up and had some pain in her left shoulder,” Duffy told the Qscan Injury Update.

“She was checked before the game and was cleared to play with a little bit of strapping on that shoulder.

“She got through the game fine, obviously had a little bit of pain but nothing we’re concerned about.

“We’ll monitor her this week and she’ll be a test for this weekend.”

Another incident to occur in the match was a knock to the knee of Annise Bradfield, but Duffy said it was also nothing serious.

“Annise had a collision and obviously that impacted her left knee,” he said.

“We assessed that during the game and with some strapping tape she was fine to continue.

“We’ll monitor how she goes through this week as well and she’ll be a test for the weekend also.”

Ellie Hampson is continuing to progress with her foot soreness, but won’t play in Round 2.

“Ellie’s progressing well, she’s returned to running outside on the grass this week,” Duffy said.

“We’ll continue to progress her as she can but at this stage she’s unavailable for Round 2.”
