Fyfe suffers major setback

Dockers skipper Nat Fyfe is set for a delayed start to the 2022 season after further surgery on his dislocated shoulder.

Executive General Manager of Peter Bell said Fyfe has undergone a revision on his initial surgery.

“Nat’s recovery from his initial shoulder reconstruction surgery had plateaued and as a result we sent him in for a scan which indicated there was a small crack in the bone block that forms the basis of these types of surgery,”

“We all know how diligent Nat is and he was complying with his program very well but these bone block fractures are known complications of this type of surgery.”

“Whilst it is disappointing we know that he will be incredibly diligent in his recovery and a return to training date will be advised in due course.”

Fyfe would have been sue to resume training with Fremantle’s older playing group on December 6.
