Sturt could replace its hamstrung forwards with a BankSA Rookie against Norwood on Saturday.

Hahndorf FC product Adam Trenorden (19, 177cm and 70kg) could make his Macca’s League debut after being listed on the extended interchange bench.

He has been joined in the Double Blues’ 23-man squad by McDonald’s SA U18 forward Hugo Munn and premiership defenders Byron Sumner and Henry Carey.

Clever forwards Shane McAdam and Rory Taggert injured their hamstrings in the second term against North in Round 13.

McAdam is expected to miss at least three weeks while Taggert could be sidelined for as many as six.

Glenelg will be boosted by the return of captain Andrew Bradley against South at Gliderol Stadium.

The Bays skipper has been sidelined by a minor ankle ailment but has been named on the five-man extended interchange with fellow inclusions Ian Milera, Ben Sawford and possible Tiger debutant Sean Davidson.

Davidson, 23, is a medium-sized defender who was recruited from Port Adelaide where he last played at Macca’s League level in 2016.

Utility Sam Walker couldn’t be considered due to a calf complaint while Tobin Cox and Nick Amato were relegated to the Reserves.

South Adelaide will unleash the son of a club champion when it visits Glenelg on Saturday.

Port Noarlunga’s Jaidan Kappler (183cm and 74kg) is the son of four-time Knuckey Cup winner David Kappler, who played 292 games for the Panthers between 1982 and 1993.

The 22-year-old has been named in the forward pocket to face the Tigers, while fellow first-year player Coby Helyar, ruckman Alex Aurrichio and small forward Cody Szust have also been included in the 23-man squad.

Utilities Adam Hunter and Scott Taylor have been sent back to the Reserves after South’s upset loss to West in Round 13.

Co-captain Joel Cross will play his 150th Macca’s League match after making his debut in 2011.

North Adelaide’s James Craig could play his first Macca’s League game of the year against the Eagles on Saturday.

The Roosters ruckman has been sidelined by injury for the majority of the season but has now banked valuable match fitness in the Reserves for the past three weeks.

The former Crow is the only inclusion to the 22-man squad, which must be trimmed by one before the bounce.

The Eagles have included two in-form goal kickers for their contest against North on Saturday.

Ruckman Marc Borholm booted eight goals in the Eagles’ massive win against the Magpies’ Reserves last round while Jack Lukosius is coming off an All-Australian performance with the McDonald’s SA U18 team at the AFL National Championships.

Both players have been named on a five-man extended interchange bench, leaving coach Michael Godden with some difficult decisions to make.

Live video stream at | Live radio & scores at SANFL Website & App



West Adelaide has regained the exciting Izak Rankine for its must-win clash against Central on Saturday.

After earning his second All-Australian U18 guernsey last week, Rankine has been named at half-back to use his dash from defence.

The McDonald’s SA U18 star has been joined by Brett Turner, Isaac Johnson and Jack Evans in the Bloods’ 23-man squad.

Lachlan Evan and Lachlan Ryan have both been sent back to the Reserves despite West’s impressive win against South in Round 13.

HB: Rankine, Burgess, Hill

B: Agostino, Wilson, J. Ryan

Central could welcome back an emerging midfielder against West on Saturday.

McDonald’s SA U18 All-Australian Jackson Hately has been named on the five-man extended interchange bench together with fellow inclusion Nick Gillard.

Hately, who was a key member of the Croweaters’ National Championship team, has been quick to adjust to the standard at Macca’s League level.

Big-bodied midfielder Cam Ellis-Yolmen has been named in the centre while Darcy Fogarty, Myles Poholke and Curtly Hampton were sent back from AFL duty.

Port Adelaide coach Matt Lokan will be forced to deal with several changes for the SANFL Showdown against Adelaide at Kadina Oval.

AFL-listed players Jack Trengove, Aidyn Johnson and Jasper Pittard will return to the line-up while hard-nosed Kyle Crompton is among four SANFL-contracted players named on the extended interchange bench.

Left-footed trio Jack Hombsch, Karl Amon and Kane Farrell have been called up by Power coach Ken Hinkley.

Veteran defender Matt Broadbent will miss the rest of the season after injuring his foot in his Macca’s League comeback last Sunday while Jake Neade and Trent McKenzie also couldn’t be considered due to injury.
