Betta Teams: SANFL - Round 1 - South Adelaide vs Glenelg
South Kick Off 2018 With Good Friday Triple Header!
South Adelaide's League and Reserves sides get the SANFL Macca's League season underway during the Club's annual Good Friday showdown with Glenelg.
The Panthers and Tigers face off in a Good Friday triple header, with the League kicking off at 1:10pm, Reserves at 10:30am and then the Club's senior women wrapping up the afternoon from 3:55pm - see the Round 9 SAFCW team here!
It will be the first time South's men and women play off for premiership points on the same day.
To start the season Jarrad Wright's selection committee has had a relatively healthy list to choose from, with Ben Haren (ankle) and Nic Schwarz (knee) the only regulars currently sidelined with injury.
The Panthers Round 1 side will feature several new faces, with key recruits Anthony Biemans, Jake Summerton and Tom Whittlesea all earning Round 1 guernseys.
Former Magpie Biemans will line up in the centre square, while Eagles recruits Summerton and Whittlesea will position themselves along the Panthers spine at full back and centre half forward respectively.
Meanwhile, young winger Mark Noble is set to make his SANFL debut, while small defender Robert Irra, the younger brother of former Panther and Port Adelaide Power rookie Emmanuel Irra, could also feature against the Tigers pending the shortening of an extended bench.
In the Reserves, big American Alex Aurrichio will make his return to the field, while Tarak Redigolo and Scott Taylor will look to continue to build match fitness in a youthful backline.
