Sun will come out for Ran­dall

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT -

CHELSEA Ran­dall has de­clared “the sun will still come out to­mor­row”, as she pre­pares to un­dergo a sea­son-end­ing knee re­con­struc­tion.

She will go un­der the knife in com­ing days af­ter rup­tur­ing her an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment at train­ing on Mon­day.

Ran­dall, 28, took to In­sta­gram overnight to thank her team-mates, coaches, fam­ily and friends for their sup­port, while the broader foot­ball world ral­lied around the Crows two-time AFLW premier­ship co-cap­tain.

The All-Aus­tralian foot­baller — one of the most beloved char­ac­ters at West Lakes — had scans yes­ter­day, which con­firmed the worst.

“I’ll be stand­ing proud and strong be­side my beloved team-mates this sea­son, watch­ing them shine from the side­lines,” she wrote. “No doubt I’ll have ups and downs but I am so for­tu­nate to have such amaz­ing peo­ple like you in my life.

“It’s dis­ap­point­ing of course, yet there are worse peo­ple off.”
