Third knee reconstruction a horror blow for Parry

Friday, February 5, 2016 - 5:25 PM - by Chris Pike

ONE of South Fremantle's emerging leaders has received some devastating news ahead of the 2016 WAFL season with Jarrod Parry rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament at training this week meaning he will require a third reconstruction.

It's a terrible blow to Parry who has continued to display tremendous ability to perform as a leader and in his own right throughout his 34 game career with South Fremantle since making his debut in 2010.

Throughout 2015, despite an injury hiccup midway through he had a relatively smooth run ending up playing 14 of the 20 matches and all indications were that he was gearing up for a strong 2016 campaign coming off what was likely the best pre-season campaign of his career.
