Shepparton Swans have received positive news after young defender Nick Calandro was cleared of serious knee damage.
Calandro came off during the second quarter of the Swans’ mammoth win against Shepparton on Saturday.
Initial fears suspected he could have torn his ACL and joined Kyabram star Nathan Beck on the sidelines for the season, but Calandro was given good feedback after having scans in Melbourne yesterday.
Swans coach Brett Warburton said the club was breathing a sigh of relief after last year’s Goulburn Valley Football League rising star was cleared.
‘‘He had scans down today in Melbourne and there’s no damage, it’s just an injury that occurred during pre-season in his knee,’’ Warburton said.
‘‘It’s back related and just going down one side, the good news is there’s no operation required, just a lot of treatment.’’
Warburton said Calandro was given a cortisone injection and would rest up this weekend as the Swans have the week off.
Calandro will be given a chance to play against Shepparton United on April 26, but will not be risked with the Swans having another break after facing the Demons.
‘‘He had such a great year last year, and after the game it wasn’t looking good, but he’s a young kid really learning his trade down back and we’re pretty happy it’s nothing long-term,’’ Warburton said.
Much like the 16-year-old teenager who outgrows their childhood bedroom, it’s time for Kyabram Fauna Park’s saltwater crocodile Getcha to upgrade to a larger enclosure.
