    Potentially horrible news:

    AFLW: Fears that former No.1 pick faces third knee reco

    WESTERN BULLDOGS forward and 2017's No.1 pick Isabel Huntington has undergone scans on her reconstructed right knee after injuring it at training on Saturday.

    A worst-case scenario a torn ACL could result in her third knee reconstruction in just over two years. Huntington has an appointment on Wednesday to receive results of the scans.

    Huntington needed a right knee reconstruction after tearing her ACL in round two of the 2018 NAB AFLW season in February, against the Brisbane Lions.

    She previously tore her left ACL in an under-18 All Stars match in in Melbourne in September 2016.

    Given the short nature of the AFLW season, which runs from February-March, even minor damage to her knee could affect her chances of playing.

    Huntington told the club website last week she was hopeful of a round one return and had been given approval to return to full training, having already begun tackling and contact work.

    A prodigious talent, the now-19-year-old was selected with the first pick in last year's draft despite not having played a game since the left ACL tear.

    At her best, Huntington is strong overhead with elite skills and mobile enough to play as a tall midfielder as well as key forward.

    She has played just three games since September 2016, one of which was a practice match.

    Isabel is ok with the knee. Scan have cleared any ACL damage.

    AFLW: Dog relief with scans clearing young gun of ACL tear

    ISABEL Huntington has escaped serious damage to her reconstructed right knee and is on track to play AFLW in 2019, with scans showing her ACL is still intact.

    The Dogs feared the worst when Huntington injured her knee at training on Saturday, but the highly talented 19-year-old will not need a third knee reconstruction.


    She first tore her left ACL in an under-18 All Stars match in September 2016 and her right ACL in round two of the 2018 AFLW season in February.

    A minor knee sprain is the official diagnosis, with Huntington on orders to gradually ease back to exercise and full training pencilled in for after Christmas.

    The key forward was drafted with the first pick of the 2017 NAB AFLW Draft despite not having played a game in over a year while recovering from her first knee reconstruction.


    "It's a massive relief to know that I haven't injured my ACL again," Huntington told westernbulldogs.com.au.

    "Going through the emotions was a little overwhelming, so hearing that there was no major damage to my knee was great.

    "I'll be taking a conservative approach to training and working really closely with our strength and conditioning staff to make sure I can get the most out of my pre-season.

    "I'm really grateful for the support I've received from the club and our supporters over the past few days and I can't wait to continue my training ahead of next season."

    Good news
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    Glad that Izzy only pinged it, a third knee reconstruction before the age of 20 would be absolutely devastating.
