More surgery ends star Magpie's season ahead of finals

Pies injury curse continues, Dons confident Daniher stays The Footy Feed team with all the lastest news

DAYNE Beams' season is definitely over.

Already indefinitely sidelined after a hip operation, Beams had serious shoulder surgery on Monday.

BARRETT Rance still hell-bent on finals return

The procedure had been long planned, but was brought forward once it became apparent he was highly unlikely to regain the fitness required to return for the finals.

 

After spending 2015-18 with the Brisbane Lions, Beams returned to his initial club this year and managed nine matches in his return before he became unavailable because of the hip complaint.

Early last month, Beams used Instagram to shed light on personal issues which saw him take time away from the Magpies.

"I am a broken man at the moment and this is very, very real for myself and the people that I love at the moment," he posted.

"I am not posting this for people to feel sorry for me or to speculate about my life, I am posting this because this is an issue that I will continue to shine a light on because it is real and it can be so so debilitating if it's not treated so I plead with anyone out there doing it tough just to tell someone because in doing that you are already taking the first steps towards recovery and living a happier and loving life.

"Think if this were your husband, wife, child, friend experiencing the lows that come with depression, ask yourself what would you do for them.

"Lastly to my family thank you for inspiring me to beat this illness and always having my back. I love you all. Please start having the conversations and helping each other."
