Team Announcement

SANFL Team Selection – Tranfa set to debut for Norwood

NORWOOD has made four changes to its side to face League leaders South Adelaide tomorrow night at Coopers Stadium.

After back-to-back defeats, the Legs will look to respond as they look to record their third win of Season 2021.

Coach Jade Rawlings has recalled wingman Brad McKenzie after overcoming a hamstring complaint, while forward Harry Boyd will also return after a strong showing in the Reserves last week.

Boyd will assist Jackson Callow in Norwood’s forward 50, as Rawlings opts to go with more height to face the Panthers.

Rawlings will also unveil youngster Xavier Tranfa tomorrow night as he becomes player 1498 to represent the Norwood Football Club.

Tranfa, an Under 18 Premiership Player, thrives off the contested and physical side of the game. He also can creep forward getting dangerous at the crumb of the talls as well.

Running defender Brodie Carroll also returns to the Senior fold after playing his role well in the Reserves last Friday.

Forward Peter Bampton has been omitted along with Mitch Grigg, Zac Richards and Tom Wagner.

Norwood’s clash with South Adelaide begins at 7:40pm at Coopers Stadium with the Reserves beginning prior at 5:10pm.
