SUNS seek further advice on Ablett’s shoulder injury

THE Gold Coast SUNS medical board is seeking further advice to figure out the extent of Gary Ablett’s shoulder injury.

Ablett suffered the injury to his left shoulder in the third quarter of Saturday night’s thrilling home win over Collingwood.

Scans on his shoulder this morning returned inconclusive results.


Ablett and the SUNS medical team have both agreed to seek further specialist opinion in the coming days to assist in determining the extent of the injury, and most appropriate treatment.

General Manager of Football Operations, Marcus Ashcroft, confirmed the degree of the injury is still being determined.

“We are still in the early stages of diagnosing the injury,” he said.

“Over the next 24 to 48 hours our medical staff will engage specialists who will work with them to ensure the full extent of the injury is established and the most appropriate form of treatment is provided.”
