Port Adelaide coaches will have plenty to cause them headaches at the selection table ahead of the club’s Qualifying Final against Geelong, with a fully fit list to choose from.
The side is fresh off the back of the post-season bye and reported no injuries out of the Round 18 win over Collingwood so will not be forced into any changes.
It also has the added boost of crafty forward Zak Butters being available after serving a two-week suspension and defenders Tom Clurey and Ryan Burton ready to resume after respective hamstring and quad injuries.
All three have been first team regulars when fit and available to play.
There are no shortage of others pressing for selection including veteran Justin Westhoff showing some strong form in training and recent match simulation sessions as he aims to bow out of AFL football with some finals success.
Cam Sutcliffe and Sam Mayes might be valuable inclusions given their experience and ability to play in a range of positions while forward/wingman Kane Farrell is another who is in the mix.
First year players Miles Bergman and Jackson Mead have been among the emergencies in recent weeks and would be an outside chance of joining a rare club of players to make their AFL debut in a finals match.
Port Adelaide will on Wednesday evening name its side to tackle the Cats, with first bounce at Adelaide Oval at 7:40pm AEST / 7:10pm ACST on Thursday.
