Collingwood was cheered to learn last night that full-back Gary Pert has received no damage to the cruciate ligament in his knee, and could be playing again within six weeks.

It was feared that Pert, who injured himself while taking a mark against St Kilda last Saturday, would miss the rest of the season.

``It's better than we thought," said Collingwood's Dr Shane Conway last night.

``An MRI scan showed a partial tear of the lateral ligament, and probably a small tear of the lateral cartilage. But there's no cruciate ligament damage."

ST KILDA is confident of having state ruck-rover Robert Harvey back in action against Fitzroy at Waverley Park on Sunday.

Harvey has not played since straining his hamstring against Brisbane in round four.

But Geelong again appears certain to be without centre half-forward Barry Stoneham (thigh injury) on Saturday when it meets Richmond at Kardinia Park.

STAN WITTMAN, the last surviving member of Melbourne's 1926 premiership team, died on Saturday, aged 92. Wittman played 113 games for the Demons as a half-forward.
