Tyler Brown was an omission from the VFL match but he has now recovered from a fatigue related illness.

He will return to full training this week and will be available for selection.

Taylor Adams started his rehab conservatively with straight line running and progressed into a testing period last week, with more skills and team training.

He completed part of Friday’s match simulation and pulled up well.

Pending his completion of Thursday’s main session he is expected to be fit and available for Saturday’s clash with Geelong.

    1. Fremantle : Nat Fyfe had scans on his hamstring, after feeling tightness across the weekend. Likely to miss up to three weeks.
