The Saints will head into Round 23 buoyed by an injury-free weekend.

Following a VFL bye and a win against Richmond, the red, white and black did not see any new injuries added to the list.

Dougal Howard remains a few weeks away as he returns from wrist surgery, while return-to-play timeframes are still yet to be determined for Zak Jones and Dan McKenzie.

“It’s positive to have a stable injury list, especially at this time of year,” Acting General Manager of Football David Misson said.

“We’re continuing to monitor Zak and Dan as they work through their rehabilitation.

“While we’re hopeful they’ll make a return to play this season, we’re just taking it week by week.”
