Aussie Rules: Fyfe reveals finger issue

Nat Fyfe has revealed he dislocated his finger while playing in the WAFL last weekend but it will not stop him returning to action when Fremantle entertain Hawthorn on Saturday.

The Dockers are priced at 11/100 to beat the Hawks and continue their impressive start to the season and will welcome back their skipper following a lengthy injury absence.

Surgery needed

Fyfe has not played this season as he has been battling back from shoulder and back issues. He is now set to face the Hawks but will do so with strapping to protect a dislocated finger.

The injury occurred while playing for Peel Thunder last weekend and the gun midfielder says it will need further surgery. But only when his career is over.

"My ring finger and little finger, I had operated on in the off-season," Fyfe told SEN. "They were fingers I've both dislocated over the past couple of years.

"And 15 minutes into the first quarter (in the WAFL last week), the ring finger just popped back out, dislocated, and pretty much undid all the surgery."

Hawks could target Fyfe

There is a chance the Hawks could target Fyfe on Saturday, despite the fact coach Sam Mitchell has played that down.
But Freo star Travis Colyer says it could be a good thing if they do.

"If they do go after him, then I think that might be a positive for us, because it would mean they're potentially not focused on some other players or the contest as a whole," Colyer added.
