Max King, Hunter Clark and Mason Wood could all be available for selection this week, only requiring the green light following fitness tests at main training on Thursday.

The trio will aim to join Paddy Dow, Ben Paton and Matthew Allison, who all successfully completed their first competitive hit-outs for the year last weekend.

In further pleasing news, Liam Henry is anticipated to enter the frame next week following a hamstring injury acquired in Round 2.

Max Heath is also available after graduating concussion protocols.

“We look forward to welcoming back a number of players over the next few weeks,” EGM Football David Misson said.

“It was great to see the successful return of Paddy, Ben and Matty on the weekend, and we hope to see similar circumstances for all returning in the coming weeks.”
