The Adelaide Crows will welcome back Jordon Butts and Josh Rachele for their Round 14 clash against Gold Coast after respective injury layoffs, with coach Matthew Nicks eager to welcome them back into the fold.
Rachele meanwhile has spent the last two matches on the sidelines dealing with a corked thigh.
Nicks said the young duo were fit and ready to make the trip to Queensland to face the Suns.
“It’s good to have Buttsy back in the side, he’s a key pillar behind the ball for us,” Nicks told media on Friday.
“It was a matter of getting him right, making sure he’s ready to go.
“Josh Rachele was one where we’ve been able to freshen him up.
“It’s a pretty big challenge for these young guys to come in first year - especially after what they’ve been through the past few years.
“We felt like he needed some time to freshen himself up. We think it’s a long year and this will be really good for him, so hopefully he comes out firing.”
