Bríd Stack confirms her AFLW season is over

Cork legend Bríd Stack has revealed that she's been ruled out of the rest of the AFLW season.

The 2016 Ladies Footballer of the Year and 11-time All-Ireland winner suffered a fracture to her neck in a collision with the Crows' Ebony Marinoff in a warm-up game playing for the Greater Western Sydney Giants.

Stack has been advised by doctors not to resume contract training for another month, ending her chances of featuring for Sydney this term.

"It was devastating but I’ve had to shift my mentality over the past week," the 34-year-old wrote in The Examiner. "The constant chase for something that was always running away from me forced me into accepting that reality by just living in the moment.

"The chase may have ended but the journey is still ongoing. And I’m determined now to just enjoy the experience for as long as I’m still in Australia.

When you’re in your own bubble, everything in front of you is tunnel-vision. You only see the next challenge, the next target, the next goal. Yet deep down, I’ve been gradually widening my eye-span over the last three weeks to start taking in the bigger picture.

"For now, my primary aim is to join in with the girls for non-contact training over the next few weeks. I don’t know what will happen next year so I just want to finish up here on the pitch in some capacity."
