Brid Stack hospitalised after suffering injury playing for Sydney


Former Cork star Bríd Stack has been hospitalised after suffering an injury while lining out for Greater Western Sydney Giants during a practice match in Adelaide today. The game against Adelaide Crows in Norwood Oval was brought to a premature end near the end of the fourth quarter when Stack was met heavily in a tackle. A tweet on the Giants’ Twitter account read: “Unfortunately Irish recruit Brid Stack has been taken to hospital following spinal precaution protocols after a collision in a tackle late in the fourth quarter. She’s in the best possible care and we will provide a full update when we have further information.”Photos from the game show Stack’s concerned team-mates, including Mayo’s Cora Staunton, congregated around the 34-year-old as she received medical attention. Stack, who retired from inter-county football at the start of 2019 after claiming 11 All-Irelands and seven All-Stars, signed with the Giants in October and moved to Sydney with her husband Cárthach and their son Cárthach junior last month.
