Clark heads in for scans as Cats make light work of Lions in VFL


Brisbane’s VFL side wasn’t able replicate its senior side’s success against Geelong, going down by 118 points to a dominant Cats outfit in the VFL/East Coast state league competition on Friday.

While Geelong will be pleased with their resounding win, it wasn’t all good news for the men in blue and white hoops with dashing defender Jordan Clark suffering a shoulder injury.

His hopes of a senior recall look all but dashed in the near future as he heads in for scans on what could be a nasty AC joint injury.

With Clark set for a stint on the sidelines, Charlie Constable (43 disposals, one goal) and Quinton Narkle (25 disposals, one goal) did all they could to put their name to the front of the queue as the next man up to the senior side.

Dangerous forwards Francis Evans (four goals), Ben Jarvis (three goals) and Gryan Miers (two goals) all got on the score sheet as the Cats dominated inside 50s 64 to 33.

For Brisbane, Rhys Mathieson (31 disposals) and Tom Berry (25 disposals) found plenty of the ball, while Jarrod Berry (21 disposals) continues to work back from injury.

The win takes Geelong to fourth on the ladder in the VFL with a 5-2 record while Brisbane languishes in 14th with just three wins to their name.


Geelong: 5.4, 10.7, 18.14, 26.16. 172

Brisbane: 3.3, 5.4, 5.4, 8.6. 54
