State league affiliate: Collingwood (VFL)
This weekend: North Melbourne v Collingwood - Sunday, July 29, 1pm, Avalon Airport Oval

The season may be over for gun forward Jamie Elliott, who re-injured his left hamstring in Sunday's eight-point win.

Elliott, who has been pressing for a call-up to AFL level, walked from the field unassisted after laying a strong tackle late in the game.

Geoff Walsh, general manager of football, said: "Unfortunately Jamie was unable to finish the game after re-injuring his left hamstring late in Sunday’s VFL match.

"We'll know more about its severity in the next 24-48 hours."

Alex Fasolo, Jarryd Blair and Ben Crocker all kicked two goals in blustery conditions, and Blair's impact was noticeable.

James Aish, Fasolo and Blair all got through unscathed. That trio returned to the VFL last week after being sidelined by injury.
