CO-CAPTAIN Patrick Cripps will be available for selection this Sunday against Port Adelaide.

There were worrying signs for the midfield gun when he left the field in the first quarter with a shoulder injury.

However, the 25-year-old was able to see out the remainder of the game, producing six centre clearances despite the injury in the 52-point win.

“He settled down well, trained today and there is no issue whatsoever: he’ll train fully on Friday and play.”

He is likely to be joined by Marc Murphy, although the veteran will have to face a fitness test later in the week to determine his availability.

The two-time John Nicholls Medallist injured his hip in the final minutes of the Round 6 win.

“He is a little bit sore, he’ll be a test for this game,” he said.

“I think he’ll probably get up but he needs to get through training for the whole week. If he does, he’ll play: if he doesn’t get through, he won’t.”
