Sam Banks remains in good spirits and is being monitored closely by Club Medicos after suffering a concussion in a heavy collision on the weekend.

Banks is unavailable for selection this week as part of the concussion protocols.

Jack Graham, who was substituted out of the game early in the third quarter, is expected to miss 1-2 weeks.

Graham felt tightness in his hamstring, with scans showing a minor strain, that he will rehabilitate before returning to action.

Youngster Seth Campbell will also miss the next 1-2 weeks due to bone bruising on his knee. The 19-year-old has featured in every game this season since debuting in the Opening Round.
