MERBEIN Football Club president Toney Hurley expressed his concerns over the City Oval surface just hours before Merbein star Ash Rowe injured his ankle in his side’s 95-point loss to Mildura on Saturday.

Reigning McLeod medallist Rowe fell heavily late in the first quarter at the Etiwanda Avenue end of the ground.

He left the ground for treatment and came back on only to leave the field again.
