PORT ADELAIDE defender Ryan Burton is in the frame for selection for Saturday night’s clash with Brisbane but will need to prove his fitness at training this week.

Burton had minor surgery on his knee earlier this month and is progressing well in his rehabilitation.

He will be re-integrated into training on Tuesday and be assessed prior to team selection.

Wingman Xavier Duursma is continuing his rehabilitation on his hamstring injury but is still at least a fortnight away from returning to the field.

With no injury concerns reported from Saturday’s win over West Coast, Port Adelaide will have a near full strength list to chose from for this week’s match against the Lions.

Port Adelaide will name its side for Saturday night’s game at the Gabba on Thursday evening.


Injury list

Ryan Burton – knee (test)

Xavier Duursma – hamstring (2-3 weeks)

Willem Drew – foot (3-5 weeks)
