Tom Doedee and David Mackay have both been ruled out of Saturday’s practice match against Port Adelaide but Mitch Hinge is a chance to play his first game for his new Club.
Doedee re-aggravated a groin injury last Monday and while he has resumed running he will not play against the Power at Alberton.
Neither will Mackay who was concussed in Saturday’s internal trial game at West Lakes and has been automatically ruled out for at least 12 days by the AFL’s new concussion protocols.
Shane McAdam (corked glute) and Sam Berry (stubbed toe) were both assessed after the internal trial game and are expected to play against Port Adelaide.
Hinge, who joined the Crows from Brisbane in the off-season, will be assessed after training on Tuesday and Thursday ahead of selection.
He dislocated his shoulder during training last Monday but scans showed he does not require surgery and he acted as the runner during Saturday’s internal trial.
Daniel Talia continues to make progress in his rehabilitation from knee surgery and is expected to be available in the early rounds of the season.
Meanwhile, first-year draftee Brayden Cook is aiming to be available for selection in Round Five of the AFL season after having a shoulder reconstruction last year.
