Injury Update: Round 21

August 8, 2017 10:34 AM

Kayne Turner could return to the field this week for the first time since Round 13 after slowly recovering from a knee injury.

The small-forward has been one of their most-improved players this season, but suffered a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury during in North's loss to the Saints.  

In the Kangaroos' first 12 games, Turner was the Roos' second-highest goalscorer with 15, behind key big man Ben Brown on 29. He also averaged 4.1 tackles a game (ranked fifth at North) and 3.3 inside 50s (sixth) and was fourth at the Roos for goal assists (six) and marks inside 50 (12).

Whether Turner plays in the VFL or AFL is yet to be determined, and provided he gets through training throughout the week.

Majak Daw won't be available for the second consecutive week however after he experienced soreness in his foot following North's win over Melbourne in Hobart a fortnight ago.

The Roos will be hoping Ben Brown is available, subject to stringent testing after he suffered a concussion on Saturday night.
