Bailey Mes diagnosed with a serious knee injury

Media Alert
June 27, 2013


LG Northern Mystics shooter Bailey Mes has been diagnosed with a serious knee injury.

Mes has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her left knee in the opening quarter of the match between the LG Mystics and Kia Magic in Round 14 of the ANZ Championship.

Mes left the court immediately after sustaining the injury with MRI scans this week confirming the ACL diagnosis.

LG Northern Mystics CEO Julie Paterson said Bailey’s injury was another blow to the squad.

“Bailey’s health and wellbeing are paramount and now she is aware of what steps she needs to take to make a full recovery.”

“We’ve never had a term like it with at least four serious injuries sustained throughout the year,” Paterson said.

“Now our ANZ Championship season is over, all the girls will get the opportunity to recuperate after what has been a challenging few months and we look forward to 2014!”

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
