AFLW: Zielke in agony, Ashmore scores Emma Zielke receives a brutal knee and Kaitlyn Ashmore kicks a goal

Brisbane Lions AFL Women's Captain Emma Zielke suffered two broken ribs and a punctured lung after copping a stray knee during a marking contest in Saturday night's State of Origin. 

Zielke was taken to hospital after the incident and will be released tomorrow. She is recovering well and will return to Brisbane soon.

A recovery timeline is not yet known, but Zielke is expected to be fully fit for the start of the second AFLW's season in 2018.
