Bríd Stack To Make 'Full Recovery' After Being Injured In Aussie Rules Game

Bríd Stack is expected to make a full recovery after she sustained an injury while playing for Great Western Sydney Giants on Sunday.

The former Cork footballer was taken to hospital due to what the club called "spinal precaution protocols after a collision in a tackle late in the fourth quarter".

Cork LGFA tweeted this afternoon that there is "positive news coming from Australia" and that the 11-time All-Ireland winner "will make a full recovery from her injury".

The game against the Adelaide Crows was a pre-season friendly ahead of the new AFLW's season start later this month.

34-year-old Stack, who retired from inter-county football in 2019, signed for the GWS Giants in October and moved to Australia with her family last month.
