Tenacious Adelaide forward Jared Petrenko has survived a fitness test on his troublesome shoulder and will play in Saturday's AFL preliminary final against Hawthorn.
Petrenko dislocated his right shoulder in the last minutes of Adelaide's semi-final victory against Fremantle last Friday night.
The 22-year-old was given a searching test on Friday behind closed doors before joining his Crows teammates on their flight to Melbourne.
Adelaide's strategy and innovation coach Dean Bailey said Petrenko was "ready to go" for the knockout MCG final against the Hawks.
"We put him through a pretty vigorous test today, of wrestling and tackling," Bailey told reporters at Adelaide airport.
"Not that we needed too much convincing, but we just needed to see him do it at absolute top speed and we saw that.
"Unless something unforeseen happens in the next 24 hours, he'll line-up."
The Crows made one change to their semi-final side, with Andy Otten replacing injured defender Sam Shaw (hamstring).
But Bailey said the Crows could make a late change, with tall forward Josh Jenkins being considered to stretch an under-sized Hawthorn defence.
"It's going to be a sunny day in Melbourne tomorrow so maybe Josh Jenkins might get an opportunity, another tall forward," Bailey said.
" ... Our tall forwards will probably be the question on their (Hawthorn) whiteboard, I would think.
"Those possibilities are still on the table for us before the game."
Bailey dismissed as irrelevant Hawthorn's hot favouritism for the match, but needled the Hawks by suggesting their weekend off may work in Adelaide's favour.
"There is is no doubt that the weekend off is deserved when you win a (qualifying) final and it certainly does freshen you up," he said.
"We hope to be on our toes at the start and hopefully they might be a bit rusty at the start.
"We have got to take advantage of that - any opportunity we can, particularly in the early stages, we have got to make sure we get scoreboard pressure.
"The talk out of Melbourne is that they (Hawthorn) have got one hand on the premiership cup ... the bookies have made it very loud and clear about where they see it.
"But once the ball is bounced, it will be who can win it and who can use it and take their opportunities."
