With the end of the decade upon us, we’ve been looking at each sport on the Game of Codes podcast to work out where it will be at the end of the next decade. Today, it’s the AFL’s turn.
Richmond player Jack Higgins is in hospital after being diagnosed with bleeding on his brain.
According to media reports, the cause is unknown and the AFL club will release a statement on Wednesday.
Higgins has not been in their AFL team since round 13 and he is understood to have had headaches after Sunday’s VFL match.
The 20-year-old made his AFL debut last year and has played 13 senior games this season for a career total of 33.
He won the AFL’s goal of the year award last season.
