(PT)AFL PLAYER ROSTER ————————————The AFL has confirmed that it will not have an official announcement for the 23-year-old rookie midfielder until after the final match, as he has been battling with a knee injury.
The decision is likely to be made before the end of the season, with coach Brad Scott indicating the club was “in no rush” to make any decisions regarding the future of the rookie.
He said: “It’s a difficult situation, obviously.
It’s a situation that’s been ongoing.”
We’ve made no decision as to where we will be placing him, he said.
“He’s not out of the game but he’s got to make sure he is in good enough shape and he is getting his fitness levels under control, and he’s done that.”
The best thing for him is to be there and make sure we’re all prepared for what’s ahead of us.
“Scott said the club would take “some time” to assess the situation.”
There’s a lot of things that need to happen in his life right now,” he said on the ABC’s Good Morning Australia program.”
It’s just not a good time for him to be out there.
“I think he’s made the decision that he has to do what he feels is right, and that’s to do it in the best way for himself and his family.”
So, obviously, it’s a bit of a challenge for him.
“But it’s going to be good for him, and I think the AFL is in no rush to make a decision at this stage.”
Scott has confirmed he would be looking to bolster his midfield depth with an injury call-up in the wake of the injury to Jack Darling, who is set to miss the next four weeks with a shoulder issue.
He played just one game in his rookie season, playing just nine games for the Giants.
The 26-year‑old was named the Club’s best and fairest in 2016, with his best and second best and first best games in 2016.
He has scored 10 goals in his past six AFL games, and is now tied for the club’s best marksman in the forward line.
