This Saturday, June 2nd West Adelaide take on Sturt Football Club at City Mazda Stadium. Our league squad will commence at 2:10pm, with our development side playing at 11:30am.
We have 3 big outs unfortunately this week. Jono Beech and Shannon Green will both be out with slight hamstring strains. We are confident these are only one week injuries and they will be back for our clash with Norwood. Ruckman Tyler McPherson will miss a week after suffering a concussion during the early part of last week’s game against the Adelaide Crows.
Gibson Turner will make his much anticipated league debut after impressing with his slick skills and high goal scoring ability in his development games. Gibson has been on Richmond Football Clubs list and last week played for the Redtails, during the curtain raiser for the Crows v Melbourne AFL match.
Elliot Dunkin is named on the extended bench and is also a chance to debut.
The Evans brothers both come back into the side after being squeezed out of the team after some players returning from injury. Lachie and Jack have both been very impressive and have made huge improvements this year and we look forward to watching them continue their great form.
Sturt are coming off a 44 point victory against Glenelg and have had a strong season so far. West Adelaide will be looking for our 5th win of the season.
