Essendon Bombers Injury Report & News

Sam Draper will be available to play after escaping suspension for his hit on Esava Ratugolea last week. Whilst it’s not good news for Kyle Langford, who will need surgery on his hamstring injury. Rising Star Nic Martin will also miss due to health & safety protocols. Jake Stringer will make his return to the line-up.

Brisbane Lions Injury Update & News

In a game full of injuries, the Lions escaped with a minor scare to captain Dayne Zorko but will likely feature. However, Mitch Robinson wasn’t so fortunate, after being handed a one-match suspension. Harry Sharp looks like the obvious replacement on the wing for Robinson.
