In­jury may be bless­ing

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

GARY Ablett has been bat­tling a frozen shoul­der and says the knee in­jury that has pre­ma­turely ended his sea­son may be a bless­ing in dis­guise.

When Ablett limped off the Ade­laide Oval on Satur­day it capped the tough­est 12 months in his ca­reer.

He had been play­ing un­der duress with in­flam­ma­tion in his shoul­der and last week had scans on the joint.

“The shoul­der wasn’t 100 per cent, but at the same time I was con­fi­dent enough in it that I wasn’t do­ing any fur­ther dam­age and that I could have fin­ished the sea­son off,’’ he said.
