Melbourne Demons lose Sam Weideman for 3 months with stress fractures in his leg

“It’s disappointing information for Sam, who has had an excellent pre-season thus far,” Melbourne’s soccer supervisor Alan Richardson stated.


“Following some soreness in his hip area, the medical crew determined to conduct a scan, which has proven a stress fracture in his femur.

“We didn’t look forward to finding something this substantial, but it surely’s higher to get onto it now and forestall it from getting any worse.

“We are going to take a conservative strategy and a precise return-to-play date shall be decided by how Sam responds to the continuing rehab program.”
