A nail-tough Brisbane fan beaten by Bullet Nathan Sobey has contacted to thank Southeast Melbourne star Mitch Creek for not being seriously injured.
Sobay accidentally landed on a woman’s lap when desperately jumping under the hoop to save the ball spilled out of bounds.

She was helped by Creek and he said he would keep an eye on her when Phoenix returned to the Nissan Arena on Saturday.
“Sorbs crashed into the front row and she fell pretty hard,” Creek said.
“My first concern was to get Sobes off the ground, but when I looked up a little more, I noticed that the woman had also fallen. My first instinct was, is she okay? She needs help Is it? “
The fans weren’t injured, but they wore a helmet for their next Brett match against the Sydney Kings, showing that they had a good sense of humor.
Creek received a message from her on social media last week.
“She actually contacted me and said she was very grateful,” he said.
“I’m glad I heard she’s okay and she was in One Piece. Hopefully I could see her again in Brisbane and give her a jersey.”
Revenge never comes to Simon Mitchell’s head, despite the bullet beating Phoenix after a month of layoffs in the January 15 clash.
His team scored only 6 points in Bullets ’31 in the first quarter, effectively ending the game as a contest.
Mitchell promised a better show from his side in the rematch after winning consecutively against Tasmania and Cairns.
“I’m not going to take revenge … it’s not personal,” Mitchell said when asked if his side was owed to the bullet.
“Our defense has been really solid in the last two games and the pressure on the ball was really good. We were able to turn the team over. And … we actually got the ball, speeded up and looked good. We were able to.
“I don’t think there was an energy level to do that (against Brisbane).
“We started to get off and then tried to raise the floor a little, but we couldn’t because of the lack of energy levels. We didn’t have lungs.
“We have been successful against bullets in the past, and it seems to be bidirectional, so it may be our turn.”
