Fremantle has been dealt a blow in its attempt to push for a top eight spot, with ruckman Aaron Sandilands set to miss the rest of the season.
Sandilands was returning from a four week lay-off due to a hamstring injury against St Kilda at Domain Stadium on Sunday.
However, the 34-year-old re-injured his hamstring in the first quarter of the match.
Dockers coach Ross Lyon confirmed post-match the side’s star ruckman will not play again this season.
“It’s a significant injury and it’s season ending,” Lyon said after the Dockers’ nine point loss to the Saints.
More to come.
