ADE­LAIDE’S Rory Sloane may have won the AFL Play­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion’s Most Coura­geous Player Award, but Ade­laide’s Ben Massey may give Sloane a run for tough­ness.

Massey plays Premier League for the Ade­laide Hockey Club, but he suf­fered shock­ing in­juries af­ter cop­ping a team-mate’s stick to the face on Au­gust 12. He suf­fered mul­ti­ple frac­tures which re­quired the in­ser­tion of metal plates.

Well, Massey re­turned to ac­tion last Saturday in the Premier League semi-fi­nal, just 28 days af­ter sus­tain­ing the blow.
