Betta Teams: SAFCW - Round 8 - South Adelaide vs Sturt

South Set for Battle with the Blues

South Adelaide are set to receive a significant boost this weekend, with AFLW stars Courtney Gum and Anne Hatchard leading a talented group of inclusions to face Sturt at Hickinbotham Oval this Sunday.

Gum has enjoyed a standout season with GWS Giants this year, recently being shortlisted for three awards at the 2018 AFLW Most Valuable Players' Awards night (AFLW Players' MVP, Most Courageous and Best First-Year Player) and named in the AFLW All Australian squad.

Last season she also claimed the inaugural SANFL Statewide Super Women's League best and fairest medal.

Her inclusion in the Panthers forward line is a huge coup for Krissie Steen's side, which will also enjoy the presence of Adelaide Crows premiership player Anne Hatchard in the ruck, who this week received a nomination for the AFLW Rising Star award.

Also returning to the team is talented forward Mykala Walker-Murphy, winger Czenya Cavouras, midfielder Helen Maidment and young goalkicker Bronwen Bosley.

South will also unveil yet another player from their junior program, with 17-year-old Layla Fitzgibbons named in a forward pocket.

However, last weekend's win over West Adelaide did come at a cost, with Lauren Buchanan (leg), Hannah Munyard (shoulder), Stacey Huddleston (calf) and Madison Bennett (ankle) all forced to the sidelines this week with injury.

Sadly, speedster Bennett is unlikely to see the field again this season, however, the further casualties are not expected to keep the others out of action for long.

Young forward Taylah Eastwood has been omitted after making her debut against the Bloods.

A win this weekend would see the Panthers tighten their grip on securing a top 3 finish and qualification to the major rounds and one step closer to even claiming an inaugural minor premiership.

As well as hosting the Panthers and Double Blues, Hickinbotham Oval will also be home to the two remaining Round 8 clashes, with Glenelg and West Adelaide kicking off the day at 12pm and the battle between second and third-placed North Adelaide and Norwood getting underway from 1:45pm.
