Tigers up­beat over Hig­gins’ re­cov­ery

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT -

RICH­MOND has al­layed any con­cerns over young star Jack Hig­gins’ re­cov­ery from brain surgery after he was in­volved in a car ac­ci­dent as a pas­sen­ger.

Tigers foot­ball boss Neil Balme con­firmed Hig­gins was in­volved in a mi­nor traf­fic mishap, but said he had not been hurt at all in the in­ci­dent. Hig­gins, who has un­der­gone two rounds of brain surgery, is not al­lowed to drive for a year after his oper­a­tions.

Balme said Hig­gins checked in with the club doc­tor, but there had been no cause for con­cern.

“That was noth­ing. It was just a lit­tle dent in the car, no prob­lems,” Balme said.

“There was no im­pact at all, for­tu­nately.”
