First-year player Kai Lohmann will be sidelined for six weeks, with scans today revealing the 18-year-old suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday’s QClash.

Lohmann acquired the sprain in the second quarter of the Queensland derby, and will undergo a surgical review tomorrow.

It’s unfortunate timing for the young talent who only made his AFL debut a week prior in the Easter Thursday clash against Collingwood.

Mitch Robinson will be a chance to return to Chris Fagan’s Best 22 against Sydney this weekend.

The hard-nut midfielder was sidelined from Sunday’s match with a calf complaint, but will be available to play this weekend against Sydney provided he completes training this week.

While tall forward Eric Hipwood is on track to be available for selection in Round 9.
