Fremantle avoid Collingwood star Scott Pendlebury, sidelined for another two games with quad strain

Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury will miss the Magpies’ next two AFL games with a quad strain.

Pendlebury was a late withdrawal from the Magpies’ heavy loss to West Coast on Sunday after straining his quad late in the warm-ups and will be sidelined for upcoming games against Fremantle and Sydney.

“I had scans this morning and there’s just a little strain there, so I’ll probably miss the next couple of games,” Pendlebury told the club’s website on Monday.

Sydney are also dealing with a downed leader, after Dane Rampe was booked in for hand surgery.

However, the Swans are hopeful their co-captain could play on Saturday.

Rampe broke his hand in the second quarter of the Swans’ seven-point win over Hawthorn, which snapped a four-game losing streak.

The key defender was clearly bothered by the injury but played through the pain to be one of the Swans’ best at the SCG.

Scans have since revealed a fracture but the Swans believe Rampe remains a chance to face St Kilda at the Gabba this weekend.

Rampe’s desperate defending and incisive kicking helped Sydney seize control of their clash with Hawthorn in the third term.

“Rampe was sensational,” Swans coach John Longmire said after the victory, praising the 30-year-old’s leadership.
