Erin Phillips stretchered off in AFLW grand final

Adelaide’s commanding AFLW grand final performance against Carlton came at a heartbreaking cost with superstar Erin Phillips stretchered off Adelaide Oval late in the third quarter after appearing to sustain a serious knee injury.

Pursuing Nicola Stevens in the Crows’ attacking 50 late in the third quarter, Phillips was wrong-footed, causing her left knee to give way.

The dual Olympian went immediately to ground, clutching her knee and writhing in pain before being stretchered off the park.

Tears in her eyes, Phillips waved to the all-time AFLW record 53,034 crowd as she was afforded an emotive, standing ovation from Crows and Blues supporters .
