Bad news, Eels fans.
The Eels have this morning confirmed that in-form utility Clint Gutherson will miss the remainder of the season (and the early part of next season), after suffering a ruptured ACL during his side’s win over the Tigers.
In his absence, it’s expected that Bevan French will likely return to fullback; but he’ll have huge shoes to fill, with Gutherson having been in career-best form throughout 2017, arguably peaking with his recent shift to the back.
He was ranked 6th on the Dally M leaderboard when voting went behind closed doors last month.
We wish Gutherson all the best with his recovery.
