Brisbane will play the remainder of their clash with the Western Bulldogs with one less player on the bench, after midfielder Zac Bailey sustained a left hamstring injury early in the first term.

Bailey was chasing a ball on the wing, before pulling up with the injury, and hobbling to the bench.

The 19-year-old tried to prove his fitness to the medical staff, but was seen with ice on his hamstring soon after, signalling the end of his afternoon.

Bailey played the first three games of the season, before suffering a hamstring injury was saw him only recalled for his side’s clash against the Dogs.
