VFL 2018: Isaac Conway ruptures ACL just two weeks after sister Sophie suffers the same injury
From the Port Phillip Leader

TWO weeks ago Isaac “Izzy’’ Conway was consoling his sister Sophie after she suffered an ACL injury while training with Richmond’s VFL Women’s team.
She was to make her debut for the Tigers the following day.
Now the 19-year-old Brisbane player must sit out the 2019 AFL W season.
Last Sunday the fickle finger of fortune dealt the Conways another blow when powerful Port Melbourne onballer Izzy sustained the same knee injury, cutting short what was shaping as a best-and-fairest year for the Borough.
Conway hobbled off the ground in the second quarter against Box Hill Hawks at the City Oval. Scans the following day confirmed he had ruptured the ACL in his left knee.
