Disgraced former AFL player Daniel Connors left a man with a severed tendon in his hand after violently attacking him at a hotel in Echuca.
Connors, who played 29 games for Richmond between 2007 and 2012 before being sacked for off-field troubles, yesterday pleaded guilty in Echuca Magistrates Court to reckless conduct endangering serious injury and failing to leave a licensed premises.

The court heard the incident occurred about 1am on March 28 when the 27-year-old confronted another man in the Shamrock Hotel over a previous incident involving the man and Connors’ girlfriend.
The judge fined Connors $4000 and told the ex-footballer he was lucky to avoid spending time in jail.
