Glanville all good

Star Whorouly recruit cleared of injury after brutal collision in Milawa loss

LIGHTS OUT: Whorouly's Paul Glanville is assisted by trainers during last weekend's match

ALL involved at Whorouly were breathing a sigh of relief this week when star recruit Paul Glanville was cleared of injury after being knocked out in a heavy collision with Milawa’s Ryan Hussey last round.

Glanville was cleaned up by Hussey with a massive hip and shoulder in the opening stages of the final quarter of last weekend’s loss to the Demons, and spent five motionless minutes in the centre of the Whorouly oval before being carried off on a stretcher by trainers from both sides.

He was taken to hospital by ambulance shortly afterwards, where Whorouly coach Brendan Roche said he was cleared of any structural injury.

“He came through really well,” Roche said.

“When it happened it didn’t look good, he was knocked out with some blood coming out of his mouth.

“So they took him in for a CT scan and x-rays, and he got the all clear on those.

“He was at our pool recovery session on Monday and was fine, so that was really pleasing.”

Roche said the incident was all part of the game, but added Glanville was likely to be given a week off as a precautionary measure.

“I don’t think there was anything in the bump he probably just left himself a bit open and young Hussey got him fair and square,” Roche said.
