Marco Paparone is unlikely to make his return in 2018 due to a persistent hamstring injury sustained earlier this season. Paparone will not make his return in time for the regular home and away season, but could potentially be back for the NEAFL finals, if the Lions make them.
Last Friday, Tom Bell underwent surgery to correct an ankle syndesmosis issue after bravely battling the injury for the past month.
Bell will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.
Fortunately, no new injuries were sustained in both the AFL and NEAFL matches on the weekend.
