Western Bulldogs onballer Lin Jong will miss the remainder of the final series after suffering a broken collarbone during the Dogs’ upset win over the West Coast Eagles at Domain Stadium on Thursday night.
The Bulldogs’ hugely impressive performance was overshadowed somewhat the image of Jong in tears on the sidelines as he came to grips with the reality that his season was over.
Coach Luke Beveridge confirmed post match that Jong has a broken collarbone.
Beveridge also stated his desire for Jong to remain at the Bulldogs, with speculation mounting that he could leave the club at season’s end.
“I hope it’s about his injury and not because he thinks it’s his last game for the Bulldogs,” Beveridge said regarding Jong’s mid-match tears.
“The boys are just giving him a cuddle and he’ll be fine.”
Jong has been linked to both Collingwood and the Gold Coast Suns.
