McCarthy diagnosis revealed

Docker Cam McCarthy has been diagnosed with epilepsy.

McCarthy collapsed at training last week and subsequent tests have confirmed the diagnosis.

General Manager of Football Peter Bell said McCarthy would undergo treatment including medication for a period of time.

Bell believes according to specialists that it shouldn't effect his playing career.

“Given the interruptions to his training program, he won’t be playing this weekend however he trained strongly on Thursday and took part in the match simulation.

“We’ll make an assessment depending on how he trains and how he’s feeling for next week.”

“Cam will continue to stay here in the high performance centre on the Gold Coast and train, interact and do his best at training and playing. It will be business as usual.”
