INS – May
OUTS – Hore (inj.)

DEFENDER Steven May has proven his fitness ahead of Melbourne’s Round 4 clash against Adelaide.  

May, who sustained an injury to his ribs during Round 2, has been determined fit to return for Thursday night’s Gather Round opener, after being put through his paces at training throughout the week. 
The All-Australian will bolster the Dees’ backline, set to inject experience and strength in defensive contests.

Marty Hore was ruled out of the game earlier this week after it was confirmed that he would require surgery on a fractured thumb.  

Bailey Laurie, Josh Schache and Adam Tomlinson have all been named on Melbourne’s emergency list.

Melbourne has spent the past week based in South Australia and will be looking to collect its second win of its back-to-back games at Adelaide Oval, having already defeated Port Adelaide during Round 3.
