Richmond Club Doctor, Greg Hickey has provided an update on the condition of Jack Higgins:

“Jack’s Neurosurgeon has decided the best course of action is for Jack to have surgery next week to repair the area of abnormal blood vessels responsible for the bleeding on his brain. 

“Following the surgery, there will be a period of recovery and rehabilitation for some months, but we certainly expect Jack to resume playing football next season.”

Earlier today, the Club confirmed Higgins has an abnormality in the blood vessels in his brain, a condition he has had since birth. 

Higgins has been released from hospital, and is resting at home. 

The Club will provide more information on his recovery, following his surgery.
