Brisbane were dealt a immense blow in their AFL finals campaign with key forward Dan McStay suffering a heavy concussion.
The 26-year-veteran was as soon as subbed out in the main quarter of the Lions’ qualifying final against Melbourne after copping an unintended knock to to the pinnacle from teammate Nakia Cockatoo.
McStay was as soon as without extend dominated out of the sport and modified by midfielder Rhys Mathieson.
Concussion protocols mean McStay will doubtless be routinely dominated out for 12 days, meaning if the Lions lose on Saturday night he’ll be unavailable to line-up in a semi-final subsequent weekend.
He may maybe per chance furthermore be the main AFL participant to cross away out a final under the protocols, which were brought in before this season.
