Tuohy forced to wait to join AFL 200 club as rib keeps him out of action
The Laois man suffered the blow during the dramatic comeback win over the Bulldogs last weekend.

THE BALLOONS MARKED ’200′ will have to be put back in their box for a few more days as Ireland’s Zach Tuohy remains on 199 AFL appearances.

The Laois man suffered a rib injury during Geelong’s comeback win over the Bulldogs last week and congratulated the opponent that made the contact on him immediately after the game by saying it was the hardest hit he had felt in his time in Australia.

Geelong continued their streak with a win over Essendon despite Tuohy’s absence.

Tuohy will hope to become just the second Irishman after Jim Stynes to hit the 200 milestone when Geelong face Richmond on Friday.
