After years of waiting to be drafted, winning almost every medal and award possible and finally getting his chance this year, injury is destroying his chances of playing for Footscray this year. A quad injury in the pre season delayed his start to the year, then after being selected as an emergency mid year, he suffered a hamstring injury. Over that and just getting going again he now has a shoulder injury keeping him out of the VFL side this week.
Unbelievably bad luck for Ben. Lets hope Footscray give him another chance next year to show how good he is. It would be a tragedy if he was delisted after all the bad luck this year.
