Lance Franklin’s wretched injury run has continued with the AFL superstar hurting his hamstring at Sydney training on Wednesday.

The veteran forward will have a scan on Thursday to determine the extent of the injury, the Swans confirmed.

Franklin had not even rejoined the club’s main training group as he was being eased back into drills after a knee arthroscopy in January.

He brought up his 300th AFL game in the final round of 2019, after his return from a nine-match absence due to a hamstring issue.

Franklin missed the Swans’ opening round win over Adelaide before the season was suspended in March.

Earlier on Wednesday, ace Swans defender Dane Rampe said the two-month layoff had been beneficial for Franklin

“We’ll be ramping him up… he should be in full training on Friday and then hopefully get a few games in him as soon as possible,” Rampe told SEN.
