Last time we met South Adelaide it ended in an absolute thriller, with Westies victorious. On Saturday we are on their home ground at Noarlunga for a triple header, with our under 18’s playing at 9:10am, reserves at 11:30am and league at 2:10pm.
We have some big names coming back into our league side, with Nathan Batley back after sickness prevented him from playing against North Adelaide. Shannon Green and Jono Beech also come back into the side after some niggling injuries. Zac Bates and Tom Pillion come onto the extended bench after playing the last round in the reserves.
After playing in the Under 18 State side on Wednesday, we have recalled Izak Rankine into the team.
Jason Porplyzia comes out of the side after having a routine knee clean out last week. We expect Porps to be back within a few weeks. Murray Waite has been pushed back into the reserves, and Issac Johnson and Jack Evans are unavailable to play.
We beat South in Noarlunga last year and we want to do it again but we need as many Westies supporters there as possible to cheer them on!
