FORMER AFL star Campbell Brown left Sarah Oval battered and bruised after his Good Friday cameo for the Bulldogs.

Over the weekend Triple M radio reported Brown broke a rib, dislocated his finger and did his knee in South Mildura’s loss to Irymple, but played through the pain and then entertained the crowd afterwards.
