LBU forward Kahl Oliver in doubt over groin injuryLUKE MCMANUS August 26, 2014 8:00am
LBU key forward Kahl Oliver looks likely to miss the rest of the HDFL final series after suffering a groin injury in yesterday’s 33-point win against Mt Pleasant.
Oliver, with his left thigh heavily strapped, looked a dejected figure while limping onto the ground to congratulate teammates following the 11.15
Just when LBU’s finals dream was reignited, Oliver’s looked all but over with the club to properly assess the extent of the injury this week.
With a six-day turnaround before Saturday’s preliminary final against Leitchville-Gunbower, Oliver was ruled out by coach Ady Dohnt.
Oliver is not the only injury concern after assistant coach John Halloran rolled an ankle halfway through the final term.
Halloran, who only recovered from a shoulder injury two weeks earlier, went down on the left ankle and was put on ice for the rest of the match.
The experienced on-baller had only just iced the match before injury struck, kicking the first goal of the final term to extend the margin out to 27 points.
As the injury count blows out again, LBU will be buoyed by the imminent return of Nathan O’Brien, who only narrowly missed out on selection last week.
Halloran said Jonathan Hay, who would be an ideal replacement for Oliver, would be a ‘‘50-50 chance, at best’’ to return, but only for a potential grand final berth.
