Knee in­jury stops Scully

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

A WORSE-than-ex­pected knee in­jury to mid­field star Tom Scully has put a fur­ther wobble in Mel­bourne’s bid for AFL fi­nals for the first time in five years. Scully will miss four weeks af­ter sore­ness in his left knee was di­ag­nosed yes­ter­day as bone stress in his patella. The No. 1 draft pick’s demise adds to a wel­ter of in­jury prob­lems for the Demons go­ing into their sea­son opener against Syd­ney at the MCG on Sun­day. Al­ready with an in­jury doubt over high­lyrated Jack Tren­gove, Mel­bourne have also lost tough-tack­ling young­ster Jordie McKen­zie for sev­eral weeks.
