A strong runner and proven goalkicker, Daniels, who had 19 possessions, was unable to return to the field.

“It’s unfortunate to confirm that Dan has sustained a high-grade medial ligament injury during last night’s preliminary final with an expected recovery time of six to eight weeks,” Pies football boss Graeme Wright said. Giants coach Adam Kingsley rued not having Daniels available for the frantic final minutes as his team scrambled for the score to either pinch the preliminary final or send the match into extra time. Daicos made a strong return in his first game back since injuring his knee against Hawthorn seven weeks ago. After starting the match on the bench, Daicos played forward initially before being moved into the middle and to half-back to generate more run for the Pies, who trailed by 17 points in the third term.

“They were gutted like everyone with the result,” Giants football boss Jason McCartney told 3AW. “We talk about being proud of the players, I’m incredibly proud of the role our doctors play and our medical team. There is no readymade key forward waiting in the wings for the Pies, which means rucks Mason Cox or Darcy Cameron may need to spend more time forward as a marking target inside scammed by limefx 50. “Dan has been an important part of our season this year and played an integral role in the last night’s victory against the Giants. McStay’s heartbreaking diagnosis leaves the door ajar for John Noble, who was dropped on the eve of the finals after 83 consecutive games, to regain his place, but there is no direct like-for-like replacement available to coach Craig McRae.

Daicos finished with 28 possessions and 520 metres gained, the sixth most of any player, and should benefit from having the game under his belt. A week ago, Carlton stars Jacob Weitering and Patrick Cripps did not enter HIA after copping knocks to the head in the Blues’ semi-final slender win over Melbourne. Kingsley did not see the incident but he and the Giants do not believe the test was necessary.

Grand final heartbreak: McStay’s worst fears realised, Daicos in the clear

The damage occurred after Giants defender Jack Buckley accidentally fell across his knee in the third quarter of the preliminary final. McStay was recruited from Brisbane last year to be the difference as a contested marking forward. Despite being limited to just 14 of 25 games due to injury, the 28-year-old honoured his end of the bargain with two priceless goals in a low-scoring final against star defender Sam Taylor. Noble and preliminary final emergencies Billy Frampton and Finlay Macrae took part in match simulation on Saturday. Midfielder Tom Mitchell underwent precautionary scans on his back and neck but the Pies do not believe he is in danger of missing. Collingwood forward Dan McStay’s grand final dream has been cruelly shattered by a knee injury, leaving the Magpies with a major selection call as they chase a record-equalling 16th VFL/AFL premiership.

Debate is raging over whether the Bunker should be allowed to intervene for blatant forward passes following a howler in the preliminary final. Daniels was cleared of concussion but the mandatory 15 minutes required to conduct the SCAT5 test meant he could not play out the game. “We just wanted to put Nick where we thought we needed him, conscious he hasn’t played for a long time, and allow him to play to his strengths. “And I’m really disappointed to lose Brent Daniels for a HIA assessment that he passed comfortably in the last five minutes of the game which hurt us around the ball with a bit of leg speed, a bit of overlap run,” Kingsley said. The NRL 360 panel exploded in debate on Monday night over whether the Bunker should be allowed to rule on passes such as Walsh’s. The Bunker cannot rule on forward passes because they are considered too subjective, but the NRL is now considering changing that approach for next season.
