Lions AFLW coach sent to hospital
BRISBANE AFLW senior coach Craig Starcevich will miss Saturday's inaugural QClash with the Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium.
Starcevich - a 1990 Collingwood premiership player - fell ill on Friday and was admitted to hospital, where he underwent a series of tests.
Lions AFLW CEO Breeanna Brock said Starcevich remained in good spirits as he awaited the results.
"We are sad Craig is missing out on the game as we know how excited he was for the first QClash but his health is always our main priority," she said.
Forwards coach Daniel Merrett will take the reins for Brisbane on Saturday.
