The injury isn’t to the knee he had reconstructed last season.

“We’re really disappointed for Wardy,” Head of Medical Cullan Ball said.

“He kicked around his body and had that kick smothered.

“He did some damage to his lateral collateral ligament in his right knee, so that’s not the one he had reconstructed last year which we’re thankful about.

“We expect he’ll probably miss four to six weeks depending on how quickly he settles down but thankfully no need for surgery.

Always bad news for Ward whenever he is hurt, good to see its the opposite knee than previously injured.

This will make way for Tim Taranto to return to the GWS midfield.

Its also worth noting that ‘lateral collateral ligament’ is a pretty good name for a rap group.
