Round 14 Injury Update – Forward trio in the mix to return

NORWOOD could regain 2014 Jack Oatey Medallist, Matthew Panos, for Saturday’s clash with the top of the table North Adelaide.

The experienced midfielder/forward was a late withdrawal from the Norwood side which defeated the Eagles by 26-points last Sunday afternoon.

Panos is listed as a test for this weekend’s game and will need a full week of training to put his hand up for selection.

Forward Cam Taheny is also a chance to return, as well as linkman Tom Wagner.

Taheny suffered a second concussion for the year three weeks ago during the Reserves clash with West Adelaide and will be monitored throughout training this week. Wagner suffered a shoulder injury in training a couple of weeks back, however, is on the mend with a chance of returning this weekend.

Key forward, Kobe Tozer is another possible inclusion for the Redlegs this weekend. The 21-year-old injured his foot in the Reserves three weeks back, however, has progressed well in his recovery with a return not too far away.

Captain Matthew Nunn unfortunately will be out for the next 5-6 weeks with an ankle injury sustained against Sturt in Round 12. The star midfielder will begin his rehab with hope of a quicker return than scheduled.
