Aussie Rules: Wines in line to return

Port Adelaide skipper Tom Jonas is confident Brownlow Medallist Ollie Wines will return to the Power side for the huge clash against the West Coast Eagles.

Port are priced at 4/1 to make the eight and play finals but they need to start winning following a disastrous start to the season that has seen them lose all five games.

Wines return boost

Wines has not played since round four when he suffered a heart irregularity in the game against Melbourne.

Following extensive checks Wines has been given the all-clear and he returned to light training last week. Now it is hoped he will be able to step back in to the side for the must-win clash against the Eagles.

"Ollie is another where he'll put his hand up to play," Jonas said. "Once again, it's going to come down to health and safety.
"He's really confident, he spent the week around the group, pretty much training. I'm confident he'll play."

Jonas confident he will play

Elsewhere Port should also welcome back Lachie Jones for the clash against the Eagles, while Jonas himself is hopeful of brushing off a knock.

He picked up a knee issue in the defeat to Carlton but it is only minor and he expects to play against West Coast.

"I was a little bit stiff yesterday but I've got another five days to get it right," Jonas added. "It might be a bit of a quieter week on the track but I'm pretty confident I'll get up for this clash."
