Round 12 Statewide Super League Teams

By Zac Milbank


West Adelaide will welcome back talented teenage forward Riley Thilthorpe for its contest against South at Hisense Stadium.

The AFL Draft prospect has spent the past fortnight resting his groin injury but is now set to resume at full forward against the Panthers.

Thilthorpe has been joined by potential AAMI Rookie Bailey Chamberlain, who played a significant portion of his junior football in Roxby Downs.

Measuring in at 179cm and 70kg, Chamberlain has been named on the seven-man extended interchange with fellow inclusions Reed Stevens, Patrick Fairlie and Jade Cleeland.

Defender Jack Agostino (ankle) and wingman Murray Waite (hip) were ruled out with injury.

South Adelaide has added plenty of tall timber for its clash with West at Hisense Stadium.

Key forward Tom Whittlesea has been named to return at full forward as one of four inclusions into the 25-man squad.

The former Eagle has been joined by versatile talls Ben Haren (quad) and Tom Highmore (ankle) who have both recovered from lengthy injuries.

Small forward Luke Bogle has also been listed on the seven-man extended interchange bench as a replacement for fellow goalsneak Liam Fitt, who will be sidelined by a knee injury for 4-6 weeks.

Norwood has called upon the marking power of tall forward Luke Surman for its blockbuster against Sturt at The Parade.

The former Hawthorn utility has been elevated from the Reserves for his first League game since injuring his hamstring in Round 3.

Surman has been joined in the Redlegs’ 25-man squad by utilities Brad Carroll and Jed Spence.

Potential AAMI Rookies Jack Heard (Walkerville) and Sam Barnett (Payneham) have also been named on the extended interchange bench.

Sturt could regain a premiership wingman for its massive clash with Norwood at The Parade.

Steven Slimming has been named on the extended interchange bench after overcoming a minor shoulder complaint suffered against West in Round 10.

He has been joined on the seven-man extended interchange bench by three defenders in Rory Illman, Will Coomblas and Dean Gore.

North Adelaide has included a former Power rookie to potentially make a long-awaited return against Central at Prospect Oval.

Utility Cam Hewett, who hasn’t played since Round 3, has recovered from his foot injury to be named on the six-man extended interchange bench.
