AFL: Jordan De Goey to miss Collingwood’s clash with Fremantle

Jordan De Goey AFL news
Magpies gun Jordan De Goey will miss his side’s clash with Fremantle in Perth this Friday night.

Collingwood star Jordan De Goey has been ruled out of Friday’s AFL clash with Fremantle at Optus Stadium after failing to complete training on Tuesday.

Magpies coach Craig McCrae confirmed that the versatile midfielder had sustained an abdominal injury in the club’s narrow win over Adelaide in round 10.

“Jordy won’t play,” McCrae said.

“He’s got a fresh injury, he’s got an abdominal strain.

“He got that in the game and played through it and pulled up quite sore from it.

“He’s getting scans now to check out what that means.

“We tried to give it some time just to see how it was going and he obviously didn’t get through it (training) and then went off for scans.

“We’ll find out a bit more how deep it it is.”


De Goey had only just returned from a groin problem that kept him out of Collingwood’s wins over Carlton and West Coast.

He also complained of groin soreness after the Adelaide clash, but McCrae insisted this latest concern was a “separate injury” and dismissed concerns that it could be osteitis pubis (OP).

“Actually the other one has sort of settled down and this has expressed itself as an abdominal injury,” he said.

“It’s nothing to do with OP. We actually worked through that process of assessing it wasn’t OP or the start of that.”

Against the Crows, De Goey spent extended periods in the forward line to cover the absence of Brody Mihocek (hamstring) and Beau McCreery (concussion).

McCrae said it was “likely that Beau and Brody will play” against Freo, adding that Collingwood forwards coach Scott Selwood had “done an incredible job” given the club’s personnel issues in that part of the field.

Online bookmakers have the Magpies rated as slight outsiders at $2 for their trip to Perth, with the Dockers paying $1.82 to win at home.

Collingwood are undefeated in their last seven games, while Fremantle’s only loss in the last four weeks came against runaway leaders Sydney in round nine.
