Scans have confirmed that Brisbane Lions forward Gabby Collingwood will miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured right ACL and MCL. 

The 23-year-old suffered the collision injury in the first quarter of Saturday’s match against Geelong. 

The news is a cruel blow for Collingwood, who only made her return to AFLW competition on Saturday after missing nearly two seasons with an ACL injury on her opposite knee.  

Brisbane Lions Head of Women’s Football Breanna Brock said that the Club was rallying behind Collingwood. 


“It’s difficult news to swallow, particularly after Gabby worked so hard to get back into the side after her first ACL injury,” Brock said. 

“Fortunately, she’s in good spirits and the team has really rallied behind her over the past few days as she looks ahead to rehabilitation again.” 

Taylor Smith will be a test at training this week, with hopes that she will be available for selection in Round 5 if she is able to complete training this week.  

The tall forward suffered an ankle sprain late in the second half of Tuesday night’s match against Carlton.  

While 2021 draftee Maggie Harmer will be sidelined for at least another three weeks as she continues to recover from a foot complaint.  

The Lions Academy product acquired the injury late in the pre-season and has not yet been available for selection this season.
