Docker injuries rub salt into wound

Injuries to key Dockers has made Sunday night's 28-point loss to the Bulldogs an even more bitter pill to swallow.

Skipper Nat Fyfe suffered a dislocated shoulder, Brennan Cox and Sean Darcy have sustained hamstring injuries and Mitch Crowden copped an AC joint knock.

Coach Justin Longmuir confirmed post-match that it had been a horror night at the office.

"Cox did his hammy, is doesn’t look positive at this stage unfortunately, it looks high-grade". Longmuir said.

"We’re getting a lot of collision injuries where there’s nothing we can do about. We’d love to get some continuity in our team."

"I’ve got my fingers crossed for a few of our players but we’ll definitely be making a few changes. There were some good performances for Peel too. Alex Pearce has played two and half games now but it’s probably too early to talk changes."

The Dockers take on Gold Coast next weekend at Optus Stadium.
