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.”
