Zak Jones injury: Sydney Swans midfielder injures hamstring

Zak Jones injury: Sydney Swans midfielder injures hamstring Sydney's injury list was already significant going into round nine and it got even longer when Zak Jones went down in the first half against North Melbourne. Jones appeared to tweak his left hamstring after receiving a shove from Jed Anderson in the second quarter in Hobart. The midfielder took no further part in the match, sitting on the bench with ice on his hammy. Sydney were even losing players before the bounce, with co-captain Josh Kennedy a late withdrawal with a quad injury he picked in last week's win over Essendon.

Two boating brothers have been rushed to a hospital with serious injuries after a being hit by a flying marlin in the waters off Australia's east coast Thursday.

The two men in their 40s were sailing in a rigid hull inflatable boat near Coffs Harbour when they were struck by the 80-100 kilogram (175-220 pound) animal.

The spear-nosed fish flew through the air and crashed into the brothers on the boat, which had been travelling at around 40 kilometres (25 miles) per hour.

"The marlin's sharp snout sliced open the younger brother's lower right arm, causing an open fracture," New South Wales police said.

"The older brother suffered a deep cut to his right shoulder."

One was airlifted to hospital and the other was taken overland.

"Their injuries are not considered life threatening," police said.

Some Australian marlin can grow as long as five metres (16 feet) -- and weigh as much as a car.
