Pies withdraws De Goey’s offer after Bali incident, Dangerfield, Dusty back, Dogs duo out, Eagle in hospital

Collingwood has reportedly withdrawn a contract offer to Jordan De Goey due to the fallout from his partying at a Bali nightclub.

De Goey, who is out of contract at the end of this season, had a new two-year contract on the table.

The Age reports that the deal was worth about $800,000 per season with a trigger for another two years, but that the Magpies are now reassessing their options.

De Goey has returned to Melbourne after spending his mid-season break in Bali but was absent from Collingwood on Monday as team-mates returned for training.

The 26-year-old is expected back at the club in the coming days.

Collingwood has launched an investigation after De Goey was filmed partying in Bali, and footage and footage surfaced on social media.

De Goey, who had received permission from the club to travel to Bali, was shown dancing and grossly gesturing on the Indonesian party island.

It is unclear what punishment the club will possibly impose on De Goey because he has put himself in that situation.

It also remains to be seen what effect the latest incident will have on De Goey’s value to rival clubs, with St Kilda most closely linked to a free-agency play for the explosive midfield striker.

Saints legend Nick Riewoldt said his former club should consider De Goey but weigh whether the player can change his ways.

“It’s something that you can entertain as a football club because let’s not forget that we are talking about some serious talent on the pitch,” Riewoldt told Fox Footy.

“For a club like St Kilda, who have won one premiership, he makes the difference.

“But this is all if you have a level of confidence that has shown a level of repentance.”

The latest incident comes after De Goey was impeached by Collingwood last October when he was arrested for a drunken incident at a New York nightclub.

De Goey and a friend were arrested at a Manhattan rooftop bar after an alleged brawl with other customers.

In January, De Goey pleaded guilty to a harassment charge at a Manhattan Criminal Court hearing and was ordered to complete 10 counseling sessions focusing on anger management and alcohol treatment. He was dropped by Collingwood during the legal process and returned to training in January.

De Goey was in strong form in 12 games this season, with an average of 21.5 disposals and a goal per game.

Dangerfield, Dusty is coming back

Patrick Dangerfield and fellow superstar Dustin Martin return to action as the headline act as Geelong and Richmond go head to head in an AFL heavyweight bout in round 15.

Martin’s availability after overcoming illness makes up for the Tigers’ loss of Trent Cotchin to a cracked collarbone, while Noah Balta (hamstring) is also out.

Cats veteran Dangerfield has not played since he suffered from tight calves a month ago in the same muscle he injured earlier in the season.

The previous injury – a cork in the same place where he had previously suffered a strain – put him out of action for rounds six and seven.

The 32-year-old has since completed a block of training in the past month, including some high-intensity sessions, to prove his fitness.

Dangerfield’s return for Saturday night’s MCG showdown was confirmed by coach Chris Scott, who said the stage is set for a blockbuster clash between fourth and sixth on the ladder.

“We’re pumped up because this is our first time playing in Melbourne for a while where there should be no barriers for our fans to get on the ground,” Scott told Fox Footy.

“We’ve played games when there were no trains… but Dustin Martin is back, Paddy Dangerfield is back and it’s Saturday afternoon in the ‘G, so come see Cats fans.”

Cotchin will need surgery for a collarbone injury sustained during the third quarter of Richmond’s win over Carlton last week.

“He’s had a number of scans and it’s shown he has a small tear there that needs to be surgically repaired and a plate put in,” said Peter Burge, chief of fitness at Richmond.

“So he’ll have that done in a day or so. He will miss this week and we will reassess what that means after this week. It’s a bit of a shame, but we’ll get him back as soon as possible.”

Dog duo out, Eagle in hospital

Western Bulldogs utility Taylor Duryea is out for two months while teammate Tim English will also miss his AFL club’s next game.

Duryea suffered a medial ligament injury to a knee, while Engels suffered a delayed concussion that has banned him from the Dogs’ Friday night game against Hawthorn.

English was involved in a dangerous tackle by Braydon Preuss of GWS on Saturday-evening, which resulted in the Giants-ruckman being given a one-game suspension.

But the Bulldogs aren’t sure if that incident led to English’s concussion.

“Tim was involved in some high-impact incidents during the game,” Chris Bell, the Dogs’ chief of medicine, said in a statement on Monday.

“He was fine during the game, but then he got a headache.

“Yesterday, Tim developed some signs and symptoms consistent with a delayed concussion.”

Duryea was injured in the first quarter of his side’s win and will miss between six and eight weeks.

But the Bulldogs have some hope that Cody Weightman will meet the Hawks, despite dislocating an elbow against the Giants.

“Scans have confirmed he has damaged some ligaments, but the bone structure of the joint is fine,” Bell said.

“We will be going through a process with Cody this week to determine when he will return to play.”

Hawthorn forward Jack Gunston is assessed by coach Sam Mitchell as likely to return against the Dogs after an ankle injury in Round 12.

Spearhead Mitch Lewis is sure to return after missing the Hawks’ final game due to a swollen knee.

Meanwhile, West Coast defender Jeremy McGovern will spend a third night in hospital after sustaining a significant rib injury in Saturday’s 18-point loss against Geelong.

McGovern was hospitalized after leaving the field in the second quarter, and he will undergo surgery Monday to have a plate put in place.

The Eagles say they will release more details after the operation.

Richmond will have to do without Trent Cotchin due to their momentous struggle with Geelong on Saturday, which saw the former captain undergo surgery to repair a cracked collarbone.

Robbie Tarrant (hand) is in doubt and Noah Balta will miss at least one game with a minor hamstring problem that the Tigers believe is related to a previous similar setback.

Dustin Martin is available to return from illness.

Gold Coast’s Wil Powell’s season is over after breaking an ankle in Sunday’s win over Adelaide.

The Crows await scan results of young striker Riley Thilthorpe’s ankle injury.

Port Adelaide is also awaiting results from Monday’s scans on midfielder Zak Butters, who suffered a knee injury in the Power’s win over Sydney on Saturday.

Brynn Teakle, Port’s mid-season conscript, has had surgery for a broken collarbone, interrupting his AFL debut against the Swans and missing him for up to eight weeks.
