Jacob Bauer, hamstring
“It was heartbreaking, wasn’t it. Right at the start of the game, two minutes in, Jacob’s turned and hit a kick and felt his hamstring. He tried to battle on, as he does, he’s pretty tough, Jacob. We made the call to take him off, he’s hurt himself and it’s probably on the minor end of things. Shattering, really, given the circumstances. The good news is he’s started moving again today and his mood’s picked up, and we look forward to having him back in the short-term.”
