Brisbane Lions forward Jessica Wuetschner will miss match against Geelong Cats as she continues her recovery from lightning strike

Brisbane Lions AFLW forward Jessica Wuetschner’s ongoing recovery from a lightning strike has led to her being ruled out of Sunday’s match against Geelong.

The 27-year-old was hit by lightning at the Port of Brisbane last month while at work as a stevedore.

Although she was cleared of physical injuries at the time and featured in the Lions’ season-opening upset win over Adelaide, the Lions announced on Thursday she wouldn’t face the Cats.

“The recovery process from a lightning strike is not straightforward, as the event itself is so rare,” Lions Women’s chief executive Breeanna Brock said.
