Sturt has been boosted by the return of a premiership defender for its Elimination Final against Norwood on Saturday.

Harms is the ideal replacement for emerging backman Rory Illman, who is sidelined by a hamstring strain.
Hahndorf FC teenagers Joel Parker-Boers and Adam Trenorden have been included in the 23-man squad, with both named on the five-man extended interchange bench to potentially make their League debut.

Davidson will line-up at half-forward while the other pair have been named on the five-man extended interchange bench.
