Aussie Rules: Parfitt suffers broken hand

Geelong will be without Brandan Parfitt for up to a month after he broke his hand in the win over the Western Bulldogs on Friday night.

The Cats are priced at 10/1 to win the 2022 AFL grand final and are going well after winning eight of the opening 12 games to move to fourth spot on the ladder.

Parfitt setback

Their latest win came on Friday night when they defeated the Bulldogs by 13 points, but the win came at a cost after Parfitt suffered a broken hand.

The 24-year-old is set to undergo surgery this week to fix the issue and they predict it will be about four weeks before he is able to return to action.

The injury is a setback as Parfitt has been in great form this season when averaging 21 disposals, while he is also ranked 11th in the AFL tackle count.

"After assessment and consultation, Brandan will have surgery on his hand in the coming days to ensure the best recovery for him - short and long term," head of medical and conditioning services Harry Taylor said.

"Brandan’s status will be assessed post-surgery, however it is expected he will be unavailable for the short to medium term."

Stewart concussion

Meanwhile Tom Stewart has entered concussion protocols after taking a whack against the Bulldogs.

However the Cats are not playing this week due to the bye so there is a good chance Stewart will not miss any action.
