NORWOOD has made four changes to its side that travels to Hisense Stadium tomorrow night.
Coach Jade Rawlings has recalled Cole Gerloff after an impressive performance in the Reserves last week, while defender Jack Heard returns from a club-imposed ban which he served last week.
Forward Peter Bampton will line up for Norwood for the first time this season after several consistent performances in the Reserves. Bampton has averaged 20 disposals in his first three Reserve games and has been one of the better performers for Rob Harding’s men.
Defender Mitch Wilkins will also play his first League game for 2021 after an injury-interrupted pre-season. The 27-year-old will no doubt add poise and class to Norwood’s defensive set-up as he looks to seize on the opportunity presented by Rawlings.
Defensive duo Brodie Carroll and Isaac Saywell have both been omitted along with forward Harry Boyd and speedster Dom Barry.
The Reserves will be bolstered by the returns of three key players which includes Emmanuel Irra, Henry Crauford and Michael Talia.
Irra missed last weekend due to hamstring awareness but will be right to take his place in the side tomorrow, while Crauford and Talia will look to build on their fitness after overcoming respective back and ankle injuries.
The Redlegs will look to record their third win of the season tomorrow night when they face West Adelaide at Hisense Stadium.
The match will be streamed live on the SANFL Digital Pass from 7:40pm.
