Serio knee injury for Cat Thurlow in AFL

Geelong defender Jackson Thurlow will miss the entire 2016 AFL season after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Thurlow was stretchered from the ground during Saturday’s pre-season victory over Essendon in Shepparton, with scans on Monday confirming the severity of the injury.

The 20-year-old Thurlow enjoyed a breakout season in 2015, playing 19 senior games and earning a Rising Star nomination.
