Betta Teams: SANFL Round 1 - South Adelaide vs Central District

28 March 2019

South Adelaide get their SANFL Statewide Super League campaign underway this Saturday at Flinders University Stadium.

The Panthers are set to unveil a new-look side, with as many as eight changes from the side that played in last year's Elimination Final on the cards.

Off season recruits Michael Knoll (Box Hill) and Malcolm Karpany (West Coast Eagles) are set to make their South Adelaide debuts, while the returning Emmanuel Irra has been named across half back.

Nic Schwarz is somewhat of a new recruit this season after missing 2018 with a knee issue, while injury also ruled Tyson Brown out of the finals and Hayden Sampson was listed as an emergency against the Roosters.

Young Panthers Jesse McKinnon and Darnell Tucker have also been named on an extended bench that must be trimmed by two.

Tucker, a speedy pressure forward product of South's junior program and Happy Valley (SFL), will make his SANFL League debut if selected.

High-flying spearhead Sam Overall is also set to play his 50th League game.

South have also named a youthful Reserves outfit, with up to 15 Panthers juniors to run out against the Bulldogs.

Action against Central District gets underway with the Reserves at 10:30am followed by the League side at 1:10pm.

South Adelaide's senior women conclude the day's triple header from 3:45pm. Entry to the women's game is free from three quarter time of the League game (approximately 3:15pm).
