Football Manager Gavin Bell provided an update on Monday
“Nic was sore post game and scans have revealed what our medical staff suspected after the game,”
“He is obviously a very important player to us, but we will take a conservative approach in managing his return which will be in the second half of the season.” Bell said.
Nic Naitanui will miss significant time with a knee injury. @WestCoastEagles star had scans yesterday and will spend several weeks with his knee in a brace. He will then go through the rehabilitation process and will return to play in the second half of the season.@7NewsPerth— Ryan Daniels (@FootyRhino) April 11, 2022
