PORT ADELAIDE has made two changes for its important Round 22 clash against North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday night.

Running defender Ryan Burton will return to the Power line-up for the first time since injuring his hamstring against Brisbane at Adelaide Oval in Round 17.

Zak Butters also comes back into the side, after being a late withdrawal against Sydney with a bruised sternum last weekend.

Xavier Duursma will miss the trip to Melbourne to face the Kangaroos with a bruised heel, while Cam Sutcliffe has been omitted from the side that defeated the Swans by 47 points.

Trent McKenzie, Willem Drew, Scott Lycett and Sutcliffe are the four emergencies this round. Any emergency not required at AFL level will be available for the club’s SANFL clash with Sturt on Sunday afternoon.

Saturday night’s clash between the Roos and the Power kicks off from 7.25pm AEST.

INS: Sutcliffe, Hayes, Strange, Hill
OUTS:

PORT ADELAIDE will be buoyed by the return of captain Cam Sutcliffe for Sunday’s big clash with Sturt at Peter Motley Oval.

Sutcliffe has played the last five games in the AFL side, since making his Power debut against Brisbane at Adelaide Oval in Round 17.

The skipper is joined by emerging ruckman Sam Hayes, who returns to the side after being a late out in the Magpies’ 63-point win over Woodville-West Torrens last weekend.

Jack Strange and Dallas Hill have also been included in the 25-man squad.

Sunday afternoon’s clash between the third-placed Magpies and fourth-placed Double Blues will get underway from 2.10pm at Unley.
