Scans have confirmed Matt Rowell has sustained to damage to his posterior cruciate ligament in his knee (PCL) which will see him sidelined for an extended period.
Ben Ainsworth missed Round 1 against West Coast as he recovered from a hamstring niggle but has been cleared by the medical staff and could be a contender to replace Rowell in the side.
Experienced defender Jarrod Harbrow was left out of the Round 1 team but was named an emergency and could be another considered this week.
SUNS Academy and Cairns product Caleb Graham is another who was emergency and has had a consistent pre-season. He’s an option if the match committee require more height in defence.
Chris Burgess was the final emergency named and is another versatile option at either end of the ground.
Who do you think is in the mix?
