Aine Tighe's Aussie Rules dream is up in the air after she sustained a cruciate ligament injury in a pre-season game last weekend.

The Kiltubrid player suffered the injury in Fremantle's final pre-season AFLW match against 2019 Premier champions Adelaide Crows. It's a cruel blow for Tighe who was recruited by the Dockers last May after coming back from another cruciate ligament injury in 2018.  

Another bumper Allianz Football and Hurling League weekend coming up! Follow the match tracker for live coverage on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.
