Lakers lose top player to off-the-ball hit in win over Longwood.CHALPAT SONTI May 21, 2014 3:24am
A serious injury to star midfielder Michael Shiels has marred Nagambie’s 67-point victory at Longwood on Saturday.
Shiels is likely to miss several weeks with a broken jaw after being hit in an off-the-ball incident.
Nagambie coach Linc Sullivan is angry the incident didn’t warrant a report by the umpires, or even a free kick, for what he called ‘‘a pretty low act’’.
‘‘He’d got rid of the footy when it happened,’’ Sullivan said.
‘‘I suppose it’s probably a little bit of frustration on the opposition’s part, they’ve been getting beaten easily and they resort to that. Hopefully it is only a five to six week injury.
‘‘He’s our engine room and our main ball winner.’’
