Richmond premiership defender Alex Rance has reportedly told teammates he won’t be making a return to football in 2019, and will aim to get back on the field in 2020.
According to Fox Footy’s Tom Morris, Rance told teammates on Wednesday afternoon, which all but ended his chances of returning for a fairytale finals appearance.
Rance sustained an ACL injury in the Tigers’ round one win over Carlton earlier this season.
Alex Rance has just told teammates he is resigned to the fact he won't play again this year. A bridge too far. Will target 2020 comeback.
