NORWOOD will be bolstered by the return of midfielder, Richard Douglas for tomorrow night’s clash with North Adelaide.
Douglas missed Norwood’s win against Sturt last weekend due to personal reasons, however, will return to the line -up for the clash tomorrow night.
Douglas will be joined by speedster Brodie Carroll who will feature for the first time under Rawlings tomorrow night. Carroll only managed three senior games in 2020, however, gets his opportunity on the big stage tomorrow night against the Roosters.
Midfielder/forward Cole Gerloff has been omitted, while Rawlings also revealed that emerging defender Jack Heard will not play at Senior level this weekend due to a disciplinary breach.
“Due to a disciplinary breach last weekend, Jack Heard will be unavailable for selection against North Adelaide,” Rawlings said.
“We’ve set a really high bar in how we expect our players to lead, however in this instance, the professional standards we have in place were not met.
“We love Jack Heard, he’s been a fantastic contributor for our club and team so far this season and will support him, however, we will not tolerate a breach of the expectations we have towards our program.”
