JASPER PITTARD'S hamstring strain remains the only injury worry to come from Port Adelaide’s 26-point win over Adelaide in the club’s final JLT Community Series match on Saturday. 

Pittard left the ground during the third quarter of the clash at Alberton. Power Coach Ken Hinkley said after the game he believed it was a “regular” hamstring strain. 

“I imagine he won’t play Round 1,” Hinkley said. 

Hinkley believes recruit Tom Rockliff will be available for selection in Round 1 after being held out of both official trial matches with a minor knee issue. 

Captain Travis Boak (hamstring tightness) and young midfielder Sam Powell-Pepper (shoulder soreness) will be assessed ahead of the Power’s season opener, against Fremantle at Adelaide Oval on Saturday week. 

Matthew Broadbent (ankle) joins Pittard as the only players ruled out of the Dockers clash because of injury. Robbie Gray is unavailable after the tribunal handed him a one-match ban for rough conduct.   

INJURY LIST 

Tom Rockliff – knee (available)

Travis Boak – hamstring (assess)

Sam Powell-Pepper – shoulder (assess)

Jasper Pittard – hamstring (TBC)

Matthew Broadbent – ankle (TBC)
