Tom Scully will miss the rest of the season after requiring surgery for a knee injury.
Greater Western Sydney vice-captain Tom Scully will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
The ex-Melbourne player will undergo surgery on his lateral ligament next week and will miss the final five matches of the 2014 season.
Giants football manager Graeme Allan said whilst the club would have liked for him to play out the rest of the season, the player’s welfare had to take priority.
“While we obviously would have liked Tom to play the rest of the season the medical advice is for him to undergo surgery now and the welfare of the player must always come first,” he told the club’s website.
“We expect Tom to be ready to resume training for the pre-season later in the year.”
Scully has managed a solid season at the Giants, averaging 19 disposals in in 15 matches.
The 23-year-old joins Jeremy Cameron (ankle) Tim Mohr (knee) Stephen Coniglio (broken thumb) Lachie Whitfield (shoulder and ankle) Aidan Corr (shoulder) and Nick Haynes (ankle) as Giants players to be ruled out for the rest of the season.
