Saints’ Hannebery on AFL sidelines again

Injury-plagued St Kilda veteran Dan Hannebery is set for an indefinite period out of AFL action after yet another soft tissue setback.

The 31-year-old midfielder, who was restricted to eight games or less in each of the previous three seasons, hurt his right calf during a training session at RSEA Park on Saturday.

The Saints are yet to set a time frame for his recovery.

“This is clearly a disappointing start to the 2022 season for Dan,” St Kilda football boss David Rath said.

“Given his recent history with soft tissue injuries, Dan has been working closely with the high performance and medical team to slowly build his load and he had been making some promising steps towards a return.

“While this isn’t ideal, we know Dan will approach this next phase of rehabilitation with complete professionalism.

“Our medical team are working through those next steps with Dan, but our primary focus at this moment is on supporting him through this.”

Hannebery is now in his fourth season with St Kilda and has managed a total of just 15 senior games for the club since his high-profile move from Sydney.
