Majak Daw, the star of North Melbourne Kangaroos, has been sidelined for the rest of the season after a hamstring injury.

The 28-year-old suffered this weekend from the devastating setback in the VFL against the Northern Blues.

Daw played his fourth game since returning to the game after a 25-meter fall from the Bolt Bridge in the Yarra River in Melbourne on December 17, 2018.

He suffered a & # 39; decent tear & # 39; to his hamstring, which required a six-week layoff – effectively ending his season.

& # 39; Majak ran at speed and stumbled forward, putting his hamstring under enormous pressure and tension, & # 39; said Cameron Joyce, head of northern football.

& # 39; Unfortunately, with only four games until the end of the season, he cannot recover in time to return to playing this season. & # 39;

Reportedly, the Sudan-born player had a fight with his girlfriend, Emma McKay, before falling into the river.

He had reportedly taken a sleeping pill – Stillnox – notorious for mental side effects before the jump.

Daw's car was also found near the river.

He returned to the field six months later after intensive rehabilitation, where he placed two metal rods of 15 centimeters in each hip.

The couple announced in April that they expected their first baby to be born in August.

After the fall, Daw said in a statement: & To all our beloved fans and members, I just wanted to thank everyone for their love and support in the past month.

& # 39; My attitude and view of everything has improved. I hope to be in the blue and white stripes again soon.

& # 39; Thank you for respecting my need for privacy and for giving me the chance to get better in the future. & # 39;

Joyce said that Daw's sudden setback was & # 39; really disappointing for him & # 39; because his goal was to come back in an AFL match.

& # 39; But he has to put a lot of confidence in his incredible effort to play again so quickly, given the injuries he had. & # 39;
