Dockers injury list grows

The Dockers have been dealt more blows in a horror injury run with another five players ruled out.

Sam Sturt, Joel Hamling, Bailey Banfield, Ethan Hughes and Heath Chapman all receiving bad news after the weekends matches.

Hughes and Chapman injured their shoulders in last week's loss to West Coast, with the pair now awaiting how long they will be on the sidelines for.

Banfield is also set for another frustrating break after re-injuring his ankle playing for Peel Thunder on Sunday.

Sturt also injured his knee while playing in the WAFL.

Hamling hasn't played since injuring his ankle in round one and the Dockers hoped he would return within the next fortnight.

Recent scan showed his recovery hadn't progressed as the club had hoped, with a timeline for his return still to be determined.
