Scans confirm Huntington season over

Post Match | Groves Press Conference (Rd2) Paul Groves spoke to the media after his side's nine point win over the Brisbane Lions during AFLW round two.

Western Bulldogs AFLW forward Isabel Huntington will miss the remainder of the 2018 season after scans today confirmed a ruptured ACL.

Huntington injured her right knee during the second quarter of Sunday’s win over the Brisbane Lions at South Pine Sports Complex.

It is the second time the 18-year-old, who was the Bulldogs’ first pick in the 2017 AFLW National Draft, has suffered an ACL injury.

Bulldogs Head Coach Paul Groves said the Club will fully support Huntington in her recovery.

Everyone at the club is really hurting for Izzy,” Groves said.

"We saw on Sunday just how talented a player she is, kicking two goals in as many minutes, and we were all shattered to see her go down injured.

“We will fully support Izzy during this difficult time and look forward to seeing her back out there as soon as possible.”
