Collingwood Captain Darcy Moore will miss the remaining two games of the home-and-away season as he recovers from a hamstring injury sustained during the Club’s Round 22 match against the Geelong Cats played at the MCG last night.

General Manager of Football Graham Wright said:

“Darcy underwent scans on his left hamstring this morning and the results have shown a low-grade hamstring strain which he sustained during the first quarter of last night’s game,” Mr Wright said.

“He will miss the next couple of matches, and at this stage, we expect him to return to the field for our first final.

“Darcy is an ultimate professional and will work closely with our medical team who will support him through his recovery.

“While we will miss his on-field leadership over the next couple of weeks, his absence provides an opportunity for another player on our list to make an impact.”
