Sturt will finally unveil star recruit Pat Wilson against West at Unley Oval on Saturday.

The dual Crows SANFL best-and-fairest has missed the opening two games with a shoulder complaint but has been named in the centre.

The 2016 premiership midfielder has been joined in the Double Blues’ 25-man squad by Adam Trenorden, Lachlan Burrows and a pair of potential Tasmanian debutants.

Hamish Allan (20, 205cm and 96kg) and Jared Dakin (20, 181cm and 80kg) could play their first League games for the club, with Allan the most likely given he’s named in the ruck.

The Neil Kerley Medallist has shrugged off injury to be named in the centre against the Double Blues.

Glenelg coach Brett Hand will be tempted to take an unchanged line-up into the clash with Central at X Convenience Oval.

Coming off two wins to start the season, the Tigers have added three players to their extended squad of 25.

Uncapped trio Brady Searle (Plympton), Brodie Newman (Wanderers) and Will Chandler (Corowa) have all had their strong Reserves form recognised with being named on the interchange.

Searle (19, 188cm and 88kg) is a versatile midfielder, Newman (20, 193cm and 88kg) a rebounding defender and Chandler (19, 183cm and 74kg) a crumbing half-forward.

Eagles v Adelaide | Maughan Thiem Kia Oval | 2:10pm | SANFL Digital Pass


The Eagles will welcome back Tyson Stengle for their match against Adelaide at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval.

Yet to play a League game for his original SANFL club, the 22-year-old goalsneak is the ideal replacement for Troy Menzel, who will miss with concussion.

The former Richmond Tiger has been joined in the Eagles’ 25-man squad by veteran pair Patrick Giuffreda and Matt Goldsworthy while Sam Rowland and Nick Moore also return.

Key defender Rory Lehmann was squeezed out of the line-up.
