Published on: Mar 29 2018 | Author: Joseph Marciano |

The Norwood Football Club faces Sturt FC in Round 9 of SANFLW on Easter Monday.

In the first match of what is a Norwood Triple Header, the Lady Legs will look to bounce back after falling to second placed North Adelaide last weekend by 34-points.

These two sides faced off only two weeks against each other with Norwood running out eventual winners by 44-points.

Coach of the Lady Legs Steve Symonds has made five changes to the side that fell to the Roosters last weekend.

Captain of Norwood Rebekkah McMahon returns after 3 weeks out, while two more girls will make their 2017 debut for the Lady Legs being Assistant Coach Tess Baxter and full forward Rebekah Wanganeen.

Amongst those changes Rhianna Peate and Alannah Rochow return to make up the squad of 22.

A win against Sturt on Monday will all but shore up third spot, as Norwood are one game ahead of fourth placed West Adelaide.

Despite a few big in’s Norwood lose Adelaide Crows listed player Sally Riley due to being unavailable, while Cassandra Tsoumbris sustained a foot injury last weekend against North.

Netball star Jo Hill, Alex Bigg and Lisa-Jane Millard are the other three who have all been omitted.

In: Tess Baxter, Rebekka McMahon, Rebekah Wanganeen, Rhianna Peate, Alannah Rochow

Out: Jo Hill (Omitted), Sally Riley (Unavailable), Alex Bigg (Omitted), Lisa-Jane Millard (Omitted), Cassie Tsoumbris (injured-foot)
Norwood FC Women face Sturt FC in Round 9 of the Statewide Super Women’s League at Coopers Stadium, on the 2nd of April at 10:45am.
