Geelong coach Chris Scott has confirmed Gary Rohan is in line to make his return from injury when the Cats take on Port Adelaide.
Geelong are priced at 47/100 to beat the Power and are boosted by the news that influential forward Rohan is back in the fold for the first time in the 2022 campaign.
Rohan has not figured for Geelong since last season’s preliminary final defeat against Melbourne as he has suffered with sciatica issues in his back and hip.
But he has now made a full recovery and speaking ahead of the game against Port, Scott is hopeful of having him back available.
The 30-year-old has impressed during a mini pre-season and after catching the eye in a couple of VFL games, the Cats says he is ready to step back in.
"We will see how he goes over the next few days but he doesn't need to do anything special over the next few days to be available," Scott told reporters. "The plan, given there was a VFL bye last week, was to have him ready to play last week, knowing there was a bit of a buffer there.
"He did a training load, which was in excess of his game load the previous couple of weeks.
"I'm pretty sure he's going to play."
Geelong sit 5-4 for the season so far and will be looking to bounce back following a 10-point defeat against St Kilda last weekend.
