ACL TEAR FINISHES FERGUSON
THE Jillaroos’ Allana Ferguson has been forced into retirement, after tearing her left ACL for the fourth time.
Ferguson, 25, suffered the injury last November at training. Having torn the ligament in the same knee when she was 15, 17 and 20, Ferguson knew she could not afford to do the injury again.
“As soon as I went down, I knew that was the knee I couldn’t do – and it was gone,” she said. “In my last knee reconstruction, the surgeon told me if I do it again, they can’t fix it.”
