Norwood recruit Brad McKenzie could play his first Macca’s League game for the Redlegs on Friday night.

Delisted by North Melbourne at the end of last season, McKenzie (188cm and 87kg) chose to don the red and blue instead of returning to his junior club Sturt during the off-season.

After missing the opening rounds with an ankle injury, the 23-year-old returned to the Reserves in Round 5 where he collected 17 disposals against Central in a half of football.

McKenzie has been joined in the 23-man squad by utility Harry Viney, who has also been named on the five-man extended interchange bench.

Glenelg coach Matt Lokan has reacted at the selection table by making three unforced changes for the clash with Norwood.

Lachie Earl, Jonty Scharenberg and Elliott Chalmers were all sent back to the Reserves in the wake of the Tigers’ 70-point loss to the Eagles in Round 5.

Star defender Christian Howard returns from a one-week suspension while Riley McFarlane’s impressive Reserves form has been rewarded with a spot in the forward pocket.

Max Proud, Jay Boyle and Damien Hill have also been included on a five-man extended interchange bench.

Central District star Chris Jansen will make a welcome return against South on Saturday.

The midfield maestro has recovered from a hamstring strain to be named in the centre square to face the Panthers.

Key defender Murray Stephenson is the other inclusion to the Bulldogs’ 23-man squad, with Josh Waldhuter the only certain exclusion at this stage.

South Adelaide will be boosted by the return of star midfielder Brede Seccull for the clash with Central on Saturday.

The 2016 joint Knuckey Cup winner missed South’s win against due to a corked thigh suffered against Norwood in Round 4.

Seccull has been joined in the Panthers’ 23-man squad by possible debutant Alex Moyle (22, 173cm and 76kg), who is originally from the Reynella FC in the Southern Football League.

Port Adelaide v Eagles (Alberton Oval) – 2.10pm

Port Adelaide looks set to field its strongest possible line-up against the Eagles on Saturday.

With four AFL-listed players returning – Matt White, Dan Houston, Aaron Young and Peter Ladhams – the Magpies take on an ominous look.

Karl Amon and Brendon Ah Chee played for the Power last Sunday in China, making them the only certain exclusions from the 23-man squad.

Captain Steven Summerton has been listed on the five-man extended interchange bench.


F: Marshall, Eddy, A. Young

C: Drew, White, Monfries

HB: Houston, Austin, Toumpas

B: Ginever, Corcoran, Mahney

R: Ross, T. Gray, Proude
INT: T. Wanganeen, Hampton


Eagles coach Michael Godden has a tough decision to make ahead of Saturday’s encounter with Port.

Co-captain Pat Giuffreda and Magarey Medal runner-up Angus Rowntree have again put their hands up for selection after being added to the 23-man squad.

But Godden must ponder whether it is worth changing a line-up which is undefeated and accounted for Glenelg by 70 points in Round 5.

If selected Rowntree will play his 100th Macca’s League match.


F: McGregor, Wundke, Boyd

West Adelaide’s ruck division has received a boost with the return of Daniel Webb for the game against Adelaide on Saturday.

The versatile bigman replaces Chol Majok in the centre square, with the latter squeezed out of the 23-man squad with Hugh Haysman.

Reliable defender Jack Agostino has overcome hamstring tightness while impressive teenager Izak Rankine is back after playing state basketball last weekend.

Utility Josh Stevens will be hoping to survive the cut from the extended interchange bench so he can make his Macca’s League debut.


F: Fielke, Watchman, Rankine

HF: Turner, Middleton, Bates

C: Batley, K. Stevens, Hill

HB: Wasley-Black, Klemke, Burgess

Adelaide will take a tall forward line into its match against West with the welcome addition of Josh Jenkins.

Sent back from AFL duty, Jenkins has been named at full forward to be flanked by fellow marking targets Paul Hunter and Harry Dear.

Jenkins has been joined in the 23-man squad by key defenders Kyle Cheney and Alex Keath, who have recovered from injury.

Development players Kurt Waterman and Sam Tharaldsen have been added to the five-man extended interchange bench.

Troy Menzel played for the Crows’ AFL team last Saturday night while Hugh Greenwood and Jordan Gallucci could make their AFL debuts against Brisbane this weekend.

North Adelaide has made just one change for the match against Sturt at Prospect Oval on Saturday.

Key forward Henry Voigt is a chance to play his first Macca’s League game of the season against North on Saturday.

The strong-marking Voigt is one of two players added to the Double Blues’ 23-man squad, with premiership forward Kory Beard in doubt.

Beard reported concussion after a heavy hit from West’s Ben Klemke last Saturday and has been named on the extended interchange bench.

Small forward Jack Penfold has also been added to the Sturt squad, with two players to be trimmed before the bounce.
