The Statewide Super League, Reserves and Torrens Uni U18 Cup teams for Thursday night have landed. Check them out below.
Thursday April 18
Norwood v Port Adelaide | Coopers Stadium | 7.20pm
Norwood has regained two vital players for its clash with Port at The Parade on Thursday night.
Star midfielder Matthew Nunn (illness) and triple premiership forward Brady Dawe (hip) have recovered to be included in the Redlegs’ 23-man squad.
Nunn’s presence takes on more importance in the absence of dual Magarey Medallist Mitch Grigg, who accepted a one-match ban at the SANFL Match Review Panel for striking Sturt’s Steven Slimming on Friday night.
Promising youngster Dylan Stephens is on duty with the AFL Academy, paving the way for another two possible RAA Rookies in Brodie Carroll (19, 186cm and 77kg) and Cameron Taheny (18, 185cm and 80kg).
Carroll, a mdeium-sized defender, and Taheny, a medium-sized forward, have both been named on the extended interchange bench.

Port Adelaide has named a surprise inclusion for the blockbuster against Norwood on Thursday night.
Clever goalsneak Steven Motlop will play his first SANFL match in any grade since fronting for North Adelaide’s Under-17 team in 2007.
He has been joined in the Magpies’ line-up by wingman Karl Amon, who has recovered from a knee injury while Dallas Hill, Matt Appleton and Jack Elsworthy have also been included in the 21-player list.
