Gold Coast has copped a savage injury blow with both Gary Ablett and Michael Rischitelli to miss the rest of the AFL season due to injury.

Scans have confirmed Ablett needs more surgery on his troublesome left shoulder, while Rischitelli is set for 12 months on the sidelines after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Both players suffered the injuries during Saturday's Q-Clash win over Brisbane at Metricon Stadium.
