May in hot water over high hit in horror outing


//

Star Melbourne recruit Steven May could potentially see his Demons home and away debut delayed after a high hit on Brisbane's Jarrod Berry.

The incident occurred in the final quarter of the Lions' 16. 8. (104) to 15. 7. (97) win over Melbourne as May cleaned up the Lions youngster with front-on contact after Berry released a handball.

Following May's hit, Berry laid on the turf for a few moments before leaving the field of play. The 21-year-old did not return following the clash with the Demons star.

May's incident will add to an increasing headache for Melbourne coach Simon Goodwin after his side had already suffered a spate of injuries.

Kennedy-Harris hurts knee in mark attempt

Dees small-forward Jay Kennedy-Harris was forced to leave the field on a stretcher in the second term after suffering a knee injury due to an awkward landing in a marking contest.

The damage initially appeared to be severe for the 23-year-old who is on the fringe of the Demons' best-22, but Fox Footy cameras caught the goal-sneak walking unassisted in the change rooms at half-time.

Kennedy-Harris' knee injury followed a compound fracture for James Harmes which also occurred in the second quarter.

Harmes injured his finger in an attempt to tackle Brisbane's Lachie Neale and was immediately rushed to hospital.

The injury puts Harmes, who averaged 21.3 disposals per game in 25 appearances for Melbourne last year, in serious doubt for his side's round 1 clash against Port Adelaide.

Second-year star Bayley Fritsh also finished the game under a slight injury cloud after being seen visibly limping late in the contest.
