SANFLW Teams: Round 12 V WWT

Norwood host Woodville-West Torrens at Coopers Stadium on Sunday afternoon in First Nations Round.

The Redlegs take on the Eagles in a Triple Header, with the SANFLW match taking place from 12:10pm, followed by the SANFL match at 2:30pm. The SANFL Reserves commences at 9:30am.

A Welcome to Country will take place ahead of both the SANFLW and SANFL games.

Norwood co-captain Steph Simmonds returns to the side, as does Tesharna Maher who was a late out of the Round 11 win over Central District.

Elke Cameron (who made her SANFLW debut last week) and Nicola Burns both come out of the side.

The Redlegs last month has been outstanding, and have put themselves in the box seat to qualify for the SANFLW finals in late June.

Over the last four matches, Norwood has defeated the third placed Central District by nine points, second placed South Adelaide by 25 points, eighth placed North Adelaide by 29 points and drew with the ladder leading Glenelg.

The undefeated month has helped the fourth placed Norwood to a 6-4-1 record after 11 matches – one premiership point behind the Bulldogs, and three points ahead of the fifth placed West Adelaide.

Over the next three matches the Redlegs face the seventh placed Eagles, sixth placed Sturt and fifth placed West Adelaide as they hope to lock in a finals place.

There is no team in the SANFLW league that can be underestimated, with Norwood dropping matches to the Eagles in Round 3, and Bloods in Round 7.

The Redlegs have got themselves into a great position to play post-season football, but the job’s not done yet.
