WEST COAST FEVER MIDCOURTER SHANNON EAGLAND WILL MISS THE REMAINDER OF THE 2017 SUNCORP SUPER NETBALL SEASON, AFTER RUPTURING THE ACL IN HER LEFT KNEE.
The injury was sustained 5 minutes into the first quarter of Saturday night’s game against the Melbourne Vixens at Hisense Arena.
West Coast Fever Executive Officer, Tamara Sheppard, believes the 26-year-old will address her recovery with the same energy and determination that is a feature of her game.
“Shannon’s approach to her training, preparation and play epitomises professionalism and I am certain this attitude will transfer to her rehabilitation.”
“She is an invaluable member of our Club, both on and off the court, and will continue to play a significant role for the team as she works hard to return as soon as her body and rehabilitation process allows.”
Eagland will undergo surgery in Perth early next week, before commencing her rehabilitation with Fever’s medical and strength and conditioning staff.
Fever will make a decision on a replacement player for Friday night’s game against the NSW Swifts at HBF Stadium in due course.
