AFL: Lions midfielder Hugh McCluggage to have scans on hamstring.

The Brisbane Lions are hopeful Hugh McCluggage’s hamstring injury is only ‘minor’.

Brisbane midfielder Hugh McCluggage was due to have scans on his hamstring on Monday afternoon after being injured in the Lions’ weekend loss to Hawthorn.

McCluggage limped off late in Brisbane’s five-point loss at UTAS Stadium in Launceston on Sunday.

The team returned to Brisbane on Sunday night, with Lions general manager of football Danny Daly hopeful that McCluggage’s scan results would reveal only “minor” damage.

McCluggage joins key forwards Joe Daniher (shoulder) and Dan McStay (ankle) on Brisbane’s growing injury list.

Powerful defender Marcus Adams – who missed Brisbane’s shock loss to the Hawks after he tested positive to Covid-19 last Wednesday – should return for the Lions’ Gabba clash against the GWS Giants on Saturday.

Despite being beaten by Hawthorn, the Lions remain in second spot on the AFL ladder.

However, they are now eight points adrift of undefeated leaders Melbourne, while third-placed Carlton have joined Brisbane on 32 points.

Meanwhile, experienced Lions defender Ryan Lester, who also didn’t travel to Launceston after initially being named in Brisbane’s squad, became a father for the second time on Saturday morning when his wife Emi gave birth to a baby girl, Georgie Belle.
