Daria Bannister will undergo surgery on Tuesday after fracturing her left clavicle.

The 20-year-old injured herself in a tackle late in the game against Melbourne at Casey Fields on Saturday afternoon.  

“We expect Daria to be ready to return to training in three weeks, but will be taking a cautious approach,” North AFLW football operations manager Matt Bolitho told North Media.

“It’s bitterly disappointing for her after coming off injury last year, but she is extremely resilient and will play a vital role for us later in the season.”
