OUTS: Broadbent (mental health)

HAMISH HARTLETT is set to make his long-awaited return to AFL football, when Port Adelaide travels to Perth to face Fremantle on Saturday afternoon.

Hartlett suffered a ruptured ACL in April last year, before hamstring issues this season further delayed his return to senior football.

The 28-year-old travelled to China with Port as an emergency, but will make his return against the Dockers in Round 13.

The rebounding defender will replace in the Power line-up Matthew Broadbent, who will take leave of absence from the football club as he focusses on his mental health and wellbeing.

Ollie Wines, Joel Garner, Willem Drew and Peter Ladhams are the four emergencies.

Any emergency who is not required at AFL level will be available for the Magpies on Sunday afternoon.

Sam Powell-Pepper and Karl Amon will both play their 50th AFL games, when the Power faces Fremantle at Optus Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

BRAD EBERT is set to return to football in Port Adelaide’s huge SANFL clash with Norwood at Alberton Oval on Sunday afternoon.

Ebert has missed the past six weeks with concussion symptoms, but was given the all clear from neuro specialists this week to resume playing.

It will be the first time Ebert lines up for Port Adelaide in the SANFL since 2007.

Sam Hayes will also make his long-awaited return to the Magpies’ line-up this weekend against the Redlegs.

The young ruckman ruptured his ACL at training in June last season, and was expected to return a month ago but was then struck down with glandular fever.

Joe Atley and Billy Frampton will both return for Sunday’s blockbuster clash.

Port Adelaide hosts Norwood at Alberton Oval on Sunday afternoon, with the first bounce commencing at 2.40pm.

Match: Round 10 - Port Adelaide vs Norwood
Date: Sunday, June 16th @ 2:40pm
Venue: Alberton Oval
