NORWOOD has named gun trio Matthew Nunn, Matthew Panos and Nik Rokahr for Sundays Qualifying Final with Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.
After what has been a long layoff for both Nunn and Panos, Senior Coach Jade Rawlings is confident in the experienced pair and is looking forward to unveiling both on the hallowed turf of Adelaide Oval.
2021 Michael Taylor Medallist, Nik Rokahr has also been named in the squad to tackle the Crows. Rokahr missed Norwood’s narrow one-point defeat to West Adelaide last weekend with an ankle injury, however, will look to return to face the Crows.
Rawlings has also named tough midfielder, Mitch Cotter in the extended squad to face the Crows. Cotter returned via the Reserves last weekend and is a chance to play his first League game since Sturt in Round 12.
Duo, Mitch Carroll and Max Michalanney are also potential inclusions into Norwood’s squad. Both performed well in the Reserves last week and could both come in for their first finals appearance.
Unfortunately, midfielder/forward Jed Spence will miss due to a knee injury sustained early against the Bloods, while Jai Larkins and Oscar Hodge have both been omitted.
Midfielder, Josh Richards will play his 50th game for the Redlegs.
The Legs face Adelaide from 3:15 pm this Sunday in the SANFL Hostplus Qualifying Final at Adelaide Oval.
In: Matthew Panos, Nik Rokahr, Matthew Nunn, Mitch Cotter, Mitch Carroll, Max Michalanney
Out: Jed Spence (Knee), Jai Larkins, Oscar Hodge
