In the Mix

In the Mix – Round 13

NORWOOD could head into Saturday’s crucial clash with South Adelaide with no changes after reporting a clean bill of health after round 12.

The Redlegs claimed a vital three-point win against the Double Blues last Friday and need nothing but a win this Saturday to keep their finals hopes alive.

Ruck/forward Codey Ellison headlines a list of players in the mix for selection after he was omitted for the Sturt clash. Ellison impressed in the Reserves last week despite them falling to an 86-point loss.

Consistent duo Sam Barnett and Jack Heard were again among the better players whilst youngster Jack Saunders continues to impress since his promotion from the U18s.

Injured duo Zac Richards and Declan Hamilton look as though the may be ready to return after respective knee and ankle injuries, however, it will be match committee who ultimately decide if they return through the League or Reserves.

Norwood will on Thursday evening name its side to tackle the Panthers, with the first bounce at Flinders University Stadium at 1:45pm on Saturday.
