Selectors have finalised the Torrens University SA U17 team to tackle Western Australia at Hisense Stadium on Sunday.

Set to be captained by Woodville-West Torrens midfielder Adam D’Aloia, the Croweaters boast plenty of height under the tutelage of championship-winning coach Julian Farkas.

Talented talls Harry Lemmey and Isaac Keeler will provide strong marking targets inside attacking 50m while South’s Will Verrall is expected to cover the ground well as a roaming ruck.

Norwood’s Tyson Walls, Sturt’s Nick Sadler and West’s Kobe Ryan will provide plenty of leadership around the ball as vice-captains to the prolific D’Aloia.

The 25-player squad also features SANFL father-sons in Eagle Matteas Phillipou (Sam Phillipou) and Sturt’s Luca Slade (Matthew Slade).

SA’s first match will start at 12pm, with its following matches to be played in Queensland against Victoria Metro on Tuesday July 6 and Victoria Country on Friday July 9.
