From Fremantle FC Website:
The return of wingman Stephen Hill and ruckman Sean Darcy could be made this week, according to high performance manager Jason Weber.


Hill could potentially return for Fremantle against Port Adelaide this Saturday after strong successive weeks on the training track.


“Stephen has been training really strongly with the team for the last couple of weeks,” Weber said.


“He has had a couple of great match simulations.


“At this stage he will be available for match committee and they will make a decision from there.”


Hill is good to go.

But this is very interesting:

The development of a stress fracture in Lobb’s right ankle lead to a review of Fremantle’s medical and training processes.


“After the Collingwood game, we went to the bye break and Rory came back with some foot soreness,” Weber said.


“That was diagnosed as a stress-related injury and from that perspective we’ve had a strong review of our medical and training procedures.


“The upshot of which
we’ve temporarily suspended training at Optus.

Despite not being structural replacements, having Hill, Bennell, Darcy and Ballantyne on the edge of return fills me with some optimism.

I'd argue Hill and Bennell adds as much forward structure as any of our forwards since they might actually kick it to their advantage. Ballas probably can't hurt from an organisational POV either.
