NORWOOD will be without Captain Matthew Nunn for this weekend’s clash with reigning Premiers, Woodville West-Torrens.
The star midfielder injured his hamstring in Norwood’s 36-point victory against Port Adelaide with scans this week to determine the severity of the injury.
The Redlegs could regain 2020 Reserves Best and Fairest Sam Morris who missed last weeks clash with a shoulder injury, while Brad Ficken could play his first game for the year as he returns from a significant knee injury that has sidelined him since the first trial vs Adelaide.
Duo Jesse Chandler (Hamstring) and Sam Buckham (Glute) are also listed as tests as they recover from their respective injuries.
Norwood could also regain some key personnel for their Round 16 clash against the Crows at Coopers Stadium.
Ruckman, Henry Crauford and defender Nick Pedro will both resume contact training over the next fortnight in a bid to be fit against the Crows. Pedro last featured against the Eagles in Round 8 and will no doubt add some more depth to Jade Rawlings’ defensive line.
Dashing defender Brodie Carroll will also look to return next week against the Crows as he recovers from a slight hamstring, while Peter Bampton missed last week with a back issue and aims to be fit for Round 16.
Matthew Panos again will continue his rehabilitation from his ACL injury, while Sam Duke, Jed Spence and Jonty Patrick are all ruled out for the remainder of 2021.
