Fremantle midfielder Darcy Tucker has sustained a significant hamstring injury that will require surgical review, according to general manager of football Peter Bell.

Tucker injured his right hamstring in the opening term of Fremantle’s clash with Geelong on Monday night and did not return to the field after coming off the ground.

Bell said the scans indicated tendon damage and that surgery was likely.

“Darcy had scans today which showed a tendon injury to his right hamstring,” Bell said.

“Based on the scan, it looks to be a long-term injury for Darcy, however we will be better placed to determine the length of his injury rehabilitation after he has consulted with the surgeon.”
