Team Announcement

Team Selection – Norwood name squad to face North

NORWOOD has named a squad of 25 to face North Adelaide in Round 17 at Prospect Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The Redlegs will be looking to redeem themselves after a disappointing showing against the Roosters back in Round three.

The Legs recorded a crucial win against the Bloods a fortnight ago and will need to be at their best to topple in the form Roosters.

As announced earlier in the week, experienced defender Michael Talia will miss the clash after sustaining a hamstring injury against the Bloods.

With Talia absent, the Redlegs will doubt field a relatively young back six with Cam Ball, Jack Heard and Jacob Collins all playing under 40 SANFL games.   

Coach Jade Rawlings has added returning forward Xavier Tranfa after completing his one-match suspension, while trio Matt Vardanega, Michael Cavallaro and Tom Wagner have all been named on the extended bench.

Cole Gerloff is another who will miss due to a shoulder injury, while Under 18 Peter Minervini could make his Reserves debut on Saturday.

In: Vardanega, Wagner, Tranfa, Cavallaro
Out: Talia (Hamstring)
