Higgins to play for Roos against Saints

In-form Kangaroos forward Shaun Higgins is a likely starter for Saturday’s game against St Kilda in Hobart.

Suffering a knee complaint after the Roos last-round win over Melbourne, a cloud hung over Higgins’ inclusion, but on Friday teammate Scott Thompson said the 27-year old should be fit.

“He’s expecting to play so unless he does something tonight I assume he’s playing,” Thompson told reporters.
