Injury Update: Round 19

Emerging defender Josh Battle is back in the selection frame to face the Demons. Saints Physiotherapist Andrew Wallis takes a look through the Saints' injury list.

In exciting news, emerging defender Josh Battle is eyeing off a return to senior football this week after a speedy recovery from a knee issue.

The 20-year-old has been one of St Kilda's most exciting prospects in Season 2019, the talented forward employing his athleticism, aerial ability and foot skills to reinvent himself down back.

Joining the No. 26 in the selection conversation is star midfielder Dan Hannebery, who like Battle, must get through training unscathed to make himself available.

Jimmy Webster is also a test after experiencing back soreness following the injury to his hand.

Veteran David Armitage sustained a head knock in the VFL against Footscray, so he'll need to pass the mandatory SCAT testing throughout the week to be available to play.
