Tom’s task

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

BROWN­LOW medal­list Tom Mitchell says he is “up for the chal­lenge” af­ter hav­ing surgery to re­pair his bro­ken leg.

Mitchell is likely to miss the en­tire 2019 sea­son af­ter suf­fer­ing a frac­tured tibia and fibula in his left leg at train­ing on Fri­day and was rushed by am­bu­lance to hos­pi­tal.

“I am over­whelmed by the amount of vis­i­tors and kind mes­sages I have re­ceived,” he said in a mes­sage on Twit­ter.

“I am grate­ful for all the sup­port I have around me. My part­ner, my fam­ily and friends, my team­mates, the med­i­cal team, the foot­ball club and our sup­port­ers.

“The highs and lows can change in a sec­ond but I am up for an­other chal­lenge.”
