Round 6 Statewide Super League Teams

By Zac Milbank


West Adelaide will make at least three forced changes for its match against Norwood at Hisense Stadium.

Ruckman Andre Parrella (calf), and defenders Josh Ryan (shoulder) and Elliot Dunkin (wrist), were all deemed unfit to face the Redlegs.

Jade Cleeland has been called up to replace Parrella in the centre square while captain Tom Keough could be shifted into defence to help cover Ryan’s absence.

Four potential debutants – Reed Stevens, Hamish Ellem, Lachie Squire and Tom Morrish – have also been included on the extended interchange bench.

Vice-captain Logan Hill returns to take his place in the back pocket.

Norwood midfielder Matthew Nunn has been injected into the starting line-up to confront West at Hisense Stadium.

Having missed the past three matches after injuring his hamstring at training, the 23-year-old is one of three inclusions to the Redlegs’ 25-man squad.

Nunn’s presence will force at least one change before the bounce, with Isaac Saywell and Jed Spence also included on the five-man extended interchange bench.

Redlegs premiership wingman Anthony Wilson will play his 100th Statewide Super League game after making his debut in Round 4 of 2014.

Woodville-West Torrens has recalled a leadership group member for its encounter with Central on Saturday.

Joint vice-captain Jesse Lonergan has overcome a groin strain to be named in the centre square against Bulldogs.

North Adelaide has replaced one hamstrung player with another for the contest against South at Prospect on Saturday.

Speedy forward Robbie Young has recovered from his hamstring strain to be named at half-forward while former captain Mitch Clisby will miss 3-4 weeks with his hamstring injury.

Key defender Dyson Hilder will play his first League game of the year after being named in the back pocket as Mason Neagle and Dakota Nixon were listed on the extended interchange bench.

Three players will be trimmed from the 25-man squad before the bounce.

South Adelaide forward Liam Fitt has been ruled out of Saturday’s blockbuster clash with North Adelaide at Prospect Oval.

Fitt, a plumber by trade, injured his shoulder at work but is only expected to miss one match for the Panthers.

Former West Coast Eagle Malcolm Karpany looms as his most likely replacement given he is also a left-footer who can play across half-forward or the wing.

Karpany has been joined in the Panthers’ 25-man squad by Anthony Biemans, Jack Elsworthy and Tom Whittlesea, who have all been named on the extended interchange bench.

Glenelg will welcome back premiership captain Chris Curran for its huge clash with Sturt at ACH Group Stadium.

Curran has been named in the back pocket after being unavailable last round due to his medical placement in the Riverland.

The reliable defender has been joined in the Bays’ 25-man squad by fellow backmen Brad McCarthy and Jack Yates as well as potential AAMI Rookie Brady Searle.

Originally from Plympton, Searle measures in at 186cm and 82kg.

Defender Matt Merrett was deemed unfit after hurting his ankle against the Eagles in Round 5.
