England mid-courter Sasha Corbin has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2016 Vitality Netball Superleague season after suffering an ACL injury.
Corbin tumbled in the third quarter of Loughborough Lightning's Round 2 clash with Hertfordshire Mavericks and after several minutes of treatment, she was helped off court to generous applause.
"I'm extremely gutted the season had to end for me this way. I will still be supporting Loughborough Lightning heavily from the sidelines as their biggest fan," Corbin said.
I will draw on inspiration having seen many of the greatest netballers in the world come back from this type of injury
"I'm staying positive about the situation, keeping my entire focus on the future and getting back fitter and stronger."
She added: "I know I'm in the best hands and have a fantastic medical team to support me through this difficult time. Unfortunately my parents are away but I have had a huge rock in my sister. She is the best sister in the world, looking after me around her hectic schedule."
