Collingwood are hoping to get swingman Darcy Moore back before the end of the 2018 season.

The 22-year old strained his right hamstring during his side’s clash with Sydney on Saturday night, but the club remains optimistic on seeing him again.

The significance of the injury being in the right leg is that it is not related to Darcy’s recent history,” Collingwood’s general manager of football Geoff Walsh told the club website.

“It is a new injury, to the opposite leg Darcy has recently had issues with, which means that it can be treated as a standard hamstring strain.

“Darcy will now get into his rehabilitation program and look to be back before our season concludes.”
