Western Bulldogs duo Celine Moody and Deanna Berry will miss the remainder of the 2023 NAB AFLW Season through injury.

Moody has missed the last two matches after partial dislocations in her shoulder, and while conservative management was attempted, it has been decided the best course of action is to operate.

The 26-year-old forward-ruck will meet with surgeons this week before a return-to-play timeline is established.

Berry sustained a tibial fracture in her right knee during an innocuous collision with a teammate last week, with scans revealing the damage over the weekend.

The 25-year-old midfielder-forward will not require surgery, but will be sidelined for approximately six weeks – ruling her out of a return this season.

“We’re devastated for both Moods and De, who are integral players of our team and strong leaders both on and off the field,” Bulldogs’ head coach, Nathan Burke, said.

“It’s been a challenging period for our group on the injury front this season, but the silver lining to losing two is that another two players on our list will get their opportunities.

“The entire program will wrap our arms around Moods and De, and support them both throughout their rehab journeys as best we can.”
