Fyfe to miss International Rules test match

November 18, 2014 5:39 PM

AFL 2014 Rd 18 - St Kilda v Fremantle

Nat Fyfe will miss the 2014 Virgin Australia International Rules test match.

The AFL has advised that Nat Fyfe has been ruled out of the Australian squad to contest the 2014 Virgin Australia International Rules Test match against Ireland on Saturday at Patersons Stadium.

The Australian team played a practice match against a NSW GAA team in Western Sydney earlier today and Fyfe injured his right shoulder when diving for a mark in the closing minutes of the final term.

“It was the view of Australian team management, after consultation with medical staff, no risk would be taken with any player and he was ruled out, to be further assessed by his club,” the AFL said in a statement released this afternoon.

Early indications are that it is not a serious injury. Fremantle will provide a update on the 2014 Doig Medallist’s condition in coming days once an assessment is completed.

Fyfe said he was incredibly disappointed to miss the match in his home state.

“I've loved the experience over the last few days and meeting players from across the competition, and it’s incredibly disappointing to miss out,” he said.

“I dived for a mark and simply landed the wrong way and it didn't feel right.”
