They have been joined in the 23-man squad by defender Joe Heinjus, who has been named on a five-man extended interchange bench.

Adelaide has received a massive selection boost for the contest against the Eagles on Saturday.

It will be the first SANFL League game Gibbs has played since lining up for his original club Glenelg in Round 23 2006.
The former Carlton midfielder has been joined in the 23 by a host of development players including former Tiger Matt Merrett.
Cam Ellis-Yolmen and Myles Poholke have had their strong form in the SANFL rewarded with an AFL call up while Andrew McPherson will miss up to a month with a hamstring strain.

Central District has been forced into at least three changes for its must-win clash with West on Saturday.
Key defender Nick Madden (finger), utility Jordan Furnell (hamstring) and promising midfielder Brendan Dew (knee) were all unable to be considered for selection.
Former Norwood backman Ryan Llewellyn is in line to replace Madden while utilities Sam Hanna and Frazer O’Gorman give coach Roy Laird some flexibility.
Goalsneaks Isaya McKenzie and Michael Ortiz could provide some punch inside 50m with Ortiz, set to play his first League game for the club after moving from Port Adelaide in the off-season.

West Adelaide has been dealt a defensive blow ahead of its contest against Central on Saturday.
Former Norwood backman Pat Levicki will miss the next 4-6 weeks after injuring his knee in the Round 2 loss to North Adelaide.
The tall defender is joined by fellow recruits Jade Cleeland (back) and Dallas Willsmore (suspension) as being unavailable to face the Bulldogs.

Sunday April 14
Port Adelaide v North Adelaide | Alberton Oval | 2.10pm
Port Adelaide will be without its new captain for the encounter against North at Alberton.
Former Fremantle Docker Cam Sutcliffe left the field during the second term against South in Round 2 and has been ruled unfit to face the Roosters.
He has been joined on the sidelines by ruckman Billy Frampton, who accepted a two-match ban from the SANFL Match Review Panel for striking South star Joel Cross.
Four SANFL-contracted Magpies – including former Glenelg key utility Ben Edwards – have been included in the 19-player list, which will still have another four AFL-listed emergencies added.
F: Cox, Hill, Edwards
HF: Johnson, Mead, Woodcock
C: Davidson, Atley, Pudney
HB: Frederick, Lienert, Corcoran
B: Garner, McKenzie, Grundy
R: Ladhams, Trengove, Hewett

North Adelaide will have its midfield division bolstered for its game against Port on Sunday.
Arguably North’s best player in last year’s premiership win, Tom Schwarz has returned after serving a one-match ban from the SANFL Match Review Panel.
The former Eagle has been named to start in the centre square, which could force the unfortunate omission of his younger brother James, who collected 20 disposals on debut in Round 2.
The Roosters will need to trim one player from their four-man extended interchange bench.
