St. Kilda Defender Fisher To Have Surgery

St. Kilda defender Sam Fisher will have surgery on his foot and will not play again this season.
Fisher sustained the injury before the premiership season began and was a late withdrawal before last Saturday evening's 35 point win over Melbourne at the MGG.
Coach Scott Watters congratulated Fisher on being able to make it through the season, saying, "(Fisher) managed that throughout the course of the year and at times has been unbelievably courageous in actually just getting to a game."
Ruckman Ben McEvoy will play for Fisher against Richmond on Sunday.
Fisher is a two-time Trevor Barker medalist and will have surgery on the degenerative toe injury next week.
"I'm disappointed that my season has come to an end but I intend to spend the rest of the year working with the club's younger players and getting myself ready for a full pre-season," Fisher said.
The 30 year old backman has played just nine games this season, bringing his career total to 191 games. Fisher is expected to be recovered in time for the 2014 preseason training.
