JLT: Ken post-game v Hawks - PTV Ken Hinkley speaks with media after the Power's win against Hawthorn in their final JLT clash of 2017

ROBBIE GRAY and Chad Wingard are in full training after being managed last weekend and Matthew Broadbent should be cleared in time for the Power’s opening round game.

That will leave just two men – Jasper Pittard and Dougal Howard - on the injury list.

Broadbent should be cleared for selection next week, according to Port Adelaide’s head of high performance Darren Burgess.

“Broady is looking pretty good at this stage, we’re comfortable with where he’s at and he’ll train fully next week,” Burgess told portadelaidefc.com.au.

“There’s no issues with Robbie and Chad either, so we’re very healthy going into the real stuff.”

Pittard will spend up to a month in rehab for the hamstring strain he suffered against Richmond in Week 3 of the JLT Community Series.

“Jasper has a history with hamstrings so we’re being pretty conservative with him,” Burgess said.

“He should be able to come back into the mix early in the season.”

Dougal Howard is in the final stages of rehab for his ACL injury.

Port Adelaide injury list as of Monday 13 March

Matthew Broadbent – hamstring (assess)
Dougal Howard – knee (4-6 weeks)
Jasper Pittard – hamstring (3-4 weeks)
