Geelong has secured one other win, however the damage bug has continued to hit the workforce, with two star males injured in the match.
Duncan had been arguably Geelong’s finest participant in the primary half of the 14. 7. (91) to 8. 9. (57) win at GMBHA Stadium, earlier than he was subbed off following a tackle from Suns defender Nick Holman.
The incident occurred in the ultimate minute of the primary half when Duncan was chased down on the wing by Holman as he tried to eliminate the ball, with the tackle ensuing in the Cats star’s head hitting the turf.
Duncan was left dazed by the tackle and laid immobile on the turf earlier than staggering to his toes and being helped off the bottom.
The tackle resulted in Duncan being substituted off early in the third quarter with Zach Guthrie approaching for the Cats.
“Slammed his head into the grime,” AFL nice Gerard Healy mentioned of the tackle on Fox Footy.
“It was really the proper tackle as a result of he twisted him. I feel what occurs is he grabs his arm and there is no approach that Duncan can defend himself.”
Whereas Duncan was left concussed by the tackle, it’s unlikely that Holman will face a sanction, with Bulldogs nice Brad Johnson labelling the incident “unlucky”.
“It is simply an unlucky accident,” he advised Fox Footy.
“He tried to step away a few occasions to push off the physician, however he wasn’t regular on his toes in any respect.”
Duncan’s concussion wasn’t the one damage concern for the Cats, with All-Australian midfielder Cam Guthrie struggling a shoulder scare, though he was in a position to run out the match after getting his shoulder re-strapped.
The win leaves Geelong third on the AFL ladder, and the Cats might be scorching favourites to increase their run of type in opposition to Collingwood in Spherical 11.
