Lions young gun “shocked” after coach’s fall

Brisbane Lions youngster Ben Keays confirmed he’s touched base with head coach Chris Fagan after his dramatic injury on Monday afternoon.

Fagan was taking part in the Freeze MND slide at the MCG and fell after jumping out of the icy pool, with scans later revealing he torn his hamstring tendon.

The 21-year-old forward told Afternoons said it was a “pretty shocking” turn of events.

“I’ve never seen something like that happen before,” Keays said.

“It’s going to be a challenging for him moving around and getting up to the coaches box.”
