  • BREAKING: Ablett ruled out for 2016

    MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JUNE 12: Gary Ablett of the Suns looks on during the 2016 AFL Round 12 match between the Richmond Tigers and the Gold Coast Suns at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on June 12, 2016 in Melbourne, Australia.

Gold Coast captain Gary Ablett will miss the rest of the season after scans revealed his shoulder injury was worse than first thought. 

"Gary’s shoulder is not as good as we first thought. Initially we thought it mightn’t have been as bad but scans today confirmed he’ll miss the remainder of the year," General Manager – Football Operations Marcus Ashcroft said.

"It's clearly a very disappointing result for Gary and the club but we will make sure Gary gets the surgery and treatment required to ensure Gary returns in 2017."

Midfielder Michael Rischitelli also had scans today which confirmed the veteran midfielder will require a full knee reconstruction.
