Team Announcement

Team Selection – Round 17

NORWOOD has named a squad of 25 to face West Adelaide at Coopers Stadium this Friday night.

Winless in their last two outings, the Redlegs will be looking for a four-quarter effort when they face the Bloods tomorrow night.

Coach Jade Rawlings has called upon five potential inclusions for their Round 17 clash.

Tough inside midfielder Mitch Cotter could play his first game at League level after a solid month of form in the Reserves. The youngster currently averages 21-disposals for the Reserve team with his tackle pressure a real highlight. Fellow youngster Michael Cavallaro has also been listed in the extended squad of 25 to face the Bloods. The smooth mover has put together a solid month of football in the Reserves and could be in line for a debut tomorrow evening.

The Redlegs have also named forward duo Lachlan Pascoe and Cole Gerloff in the squad.

The two have again been in good form and could potentially replace injured forward Paul Puopolo who has been ruled out with a knee injury.

Eyre Peninsula product Nick Pedro could also make his return to League football since Round six.

Pedro has been out due to lingering effects of concussion and is a chance to return in EP round which is only fitting for the Tasman junior.

The Legs will also have to be without small forward Xavier Tranfa who has been suspended for one week.

Norwood take on West Adelaide in SANFL Breakthrough Community Round this Friday night with the match beginning at 7:40pm.


In: Cotter, Pascoe, Pedro, Gerloff, Cavallaro

Out: Tranfa (Suspended), Puopolo (Knee)
