Brisbane defender Matt Eagles will miss the rest of the season.
Eagles, who had been battling an abdominal and groin issue over the past few weeks, will miss the rest of the year after Brisbane decided surgery was necessary.
The Category B rookie had strung four games together after making his debut in round 10.
“After further rehabilitation and medical assessment, we have had to consider surgical options,” Brisbane's general manager of football David Noble said.
“We are all disappointed Matty will miss the remainder of the year.”
Nic Naitanui's screamer on the weekend might be mark of the year. So who better to call it than Dennis Cometti?
