Norwood has significantly strengthened its line-up to face Adelaide on Sunday.
Jack Oatey Medallist Matt Panos (heel), star midfielder Matt Nunn (hip), key defender Michael Talia (back) and Ed Smart (hamstring) have all overcome injuries to be named in the 25-man squad.
Key position player Luke Surman has been named to start at full forward after kicking 4.2 in the Reserves in Round 11.

Adelaide has been boosted by the return of veteran midfielder Bryce Gibbs for the match against Norwood on Sunday.
Gibbs, named to start in the centre square, has been joined in the Crows’ 23-man state league squad together with forwards Ben Davis and Elliott Himmelberg, who were also squeezed out of the AFL line-up.
Wingman Jordan Boyle is among three development squad players named on the extended interchange bench.

Port Adelaide v West Adelaide | Alberton Oval | 2:10pm
Port Adelaide will welcome its captain back to confront West on Sunday.
Former Fremantle defender Cam Sutcliffe was an emergency for the Power at AFL level last Saturday night but wasn’t used, making match fitness critical for the No.1 Magpie.
Sutcliffe is among six inclusions to Port’s 23-man squad together with veteran defender Matthew Broadbent, who has returned from leave to focus on his mental health.
Former Brisbane captain Tom Rockliff unsurprisingly earned an AFL recall after racking up a SANFL record 57 disposals in Round 11 while Justin Westhoff was also rewarded for his 37 touches and three goals.
Experienced ruckman Paddy Ryder, who kicked two goals against the Roosters, will lead the ruck for the Magpies.

West Adelaide has bolstered its height in defence for the contest against Port on Sunday.
Tall utility Chol Majok has been named in the back pocket to be at least one change to the Bloods’ 21 which lost to South in Round 11.
Fellow backman Jack Agostino, who has been battling a quad injury this year, could play his first League match of 2019 after being named on the extended interchange.
Nigel Osborn and Jade Cleeland also come into the 25-man squad.
Star West midfielder Kaine Stevens will play his 100th Statewide Super League match after making his debut in Round 1 of 2014.

South Adelaide v Sturt | Flinders University Stadium | 2:10pm
South Adelaide could field an unchanged line-up when it hosts Sturt on Sunday.

Sturt has included two premiership players for its crucial clash with South on Sunday.
Ken Farmer Medallist Mark Evans, who kicked four goals in the Reserves last round, was instantly rewarded for his positive response after being named in the forward pocket.
Rebounding defender Byron Sumner has been listed to start in the back pocket after a jaw injury sidelined him since Round 9.
Forgotten utility Joel Thiele, who impressed in the Reserves with 27 disposals and eight clearances, could play his first League game of the season after appearing in 16 last year.
