NORWOOD is set to recall Ryan Bastinac and Cole Gerloff for Saturday’s blockbuster clash with North Adelaide at Prospect Oval.
Bastinac who has missed the past two games with a calf injury is in line to bolster the Redlegs midfield, while Cole Gerloff will make his return after sustaining an ankle injury against North in Round 2.
Gerloff played a full game in the Reserves last weekend and impressed Senior Coach Jarrod Cotton who is likely to cover the role of young gun Josh Richard who will miss the rest of the 2020 season.
Wingman Chris Lodovici, Jacob Collins and Jack Heard have all been named in the squad of 25 set to be trimmed tomorrow afternoon.
Unfortunately, full back Michael Talia will not feature for Norwood this Saturday after suffering a minor hamstring injury at training. The 27-year old’s timeframe is listed to be a fortnight.
In better news, forward/ruck Luke Surman will return this weekend through the Reserves. Surman suffered a hamstring injury in Round 3 and will return to playing football this weekend.
The Redlegs will be looking to continue their assault on a top four finish when they face the second placed Roosters on Saturday.
The game is set to start at 1:34pm and will be live and free on Channel 7.
