Cork legend Brid Stack has been presented her first GWS Giants jersey by none other than team mate and fellow Irishwoman Cora Staunton.
Stack continues her recovery after suffering a stable fraction of the C7 vertebrae last Sunday week during a practice game with GWS Giants, having signed for the Sydney club in October.
The 11-time All-Ireland winner was hospitalised after shipping a heavy challenge from Adelaide opponent Ebony Marinoff in the match and was released early Monday morning (Irish time). She is now expected to make a full recovery.
Staunton posted the below photos on Twitter today, which is Australia Day, that shows Stack wearing a neck brace but otherwise looking in good health as she receives her number 15 jersey from the Mayo great.
