Geelong speedster and former Railways junior Jordan Clark suffered a serious shoulder injury in the Cats’ 118-point thrashing of Brisbane in the VFL on Friday.

The 20-year-old’s chances of breaking back into the Cats’ senior side were dealt a blow after suffering a grade three AC joint injury.

Clark’s day ended in the third term when he received a bump on his left shoulder.

After scans revealed the extend of the damage, the Cats are hopeful Clark will only miss three weeks with his latest injury.

He has played nine AFL games this season, three of those as the medical substitution.

Clark had impressed in his 21/2 quarters of footy against the Lions, racking up 15 possessions, kicking a goal, and laying three tackles before coming off.

Denmark-Walpole ruckman Kalin Lane kicked a goal for the Lions from eight touches while taking three marks and having 11 hit-outs in his second VFL game.

North Albany youngster Alex Pearce was named among Claremont’s reserves best in their 24-point win over West Perth on Saturday after having 23 disposals, eight marks, seven inside-50s, and one goal.

Talon Delacey, who hails from North Albany, was in the Tigers colts’ best after picking up 26 possessions, five marks, four tackles, and five inside-50s in their 20-point win.

Ex-North Albany midfielder Declan Mountford was in the Tigers’ league best players in their loss to the Falcons.
