THE Redlegs are a chance to regain forward duo Cam Taheny and Matthew Panos ahead of Sunday’s clash with traditional rivals Port Adelaide at Alberton Oval.
After a week’s rest due to the bye, Norwood are ready to attack the second half of the year in a bid to play finals football in 2022.
After injuring his hamstring early against Central District in Round seven, Taheny remains a chance to return to the field this this Sunday against the Magpies. The 20-year-old will be tested this week to be a chance for selection on the weekend.

In better news for Norwood, forward Lachlan Pascoe could return this weekend after a lengthy lay off with a knee injury. Pascoe, who was impressive throughout the back half of 2021 could return to the field this weekend.
Fellow forward Mac Bower will return after overcoming illness, while dashing defender Brodie Carroll is also a chance to play his first game for the year after overcoming a hamstring injury.
Ben Kelly (groin) and Stefan Lanzoni (hamstring) are both listed as tests as they return from lengthy layoffs.
Defender Lochie Charlton is listed as a TBC following his foot injury sustained against the Crows, while Nic Pedro (Concussion) and Louis Joseph (Concussion) still work through respective concussion protocols.
