AFLW knee toll hits double figures – LASEM’s Professor Peter Brunkner comments

St Kilda coach Peta Searle has highlighted the heavy on and off-field cost of serious knee injuries for semi-professional AFLW players after Saint Tarni White became the 11th player this season to go down with a suspected torn anterior cruciate ligament. The AFL has undertaken several initiatives in recent years to address this problem, working with La Trobe University’s  Sport and Exercise Medicine Research Centre to undertake research into the area, while also developing a “Prep to Play” program to help with injury prevention exercises.
