ST KILDA recruit Liam Henry and wingman Mason Wood will miss at least the next six weeks after suffering injuries in Thursday night's win over Collingwood at the MCG. 

Henry finished Spud's Game on the bench due to what was initially thought to be hamstring tightness, but has since proven to be far worse.

Scans late on Friday have revealed a high-grade hamstring strain that will rule the former Docker out until round nine at the earliest. 

After collecting 19 disposals in his first appearance for the Saints in round one, Henry kicked 2.2 from 14 touches against the Magpies. 

Wood is set to undergo surgery on Friday night to repair his collarbone with a return date to become clearer next week. 

The 30-year-old was stretchered off the ground in the first quarter after a nasty collision with teammate Zaine Cordy, suffering a concussion as well as the broken collarbone. 


Play stopped for more than five minutes due to the gruesome nature of the injury, but Wood has been cleared of facial and neck damage. 

Wood has resurrected his career at St Kilda over the past two seasons, playing 19 games in 2022 and all 24 last year after being signed as a delisted free agent at the end of 2020, following 65 appearances for North Melbourne.
