Betta Teams: SANFL Round 5 - South Adelaide vs Sturt

South Adelaide travel to Unley to face Sturt in their Round 5 SANFL Statewide Super League Anzac Round clash this Sunday.

The Panthers will make at least two changes to the side that played out a dramatic draw against Adelaide last weekend.

Young small forward Darnell Tucker is unavailable due to State U18 commitments, while Noarlunga recruit Kyle Emery has been sent back to the Reserves after two League games.

This opens the door for two debutants against the Double Blues.

Brett Kennedy, 20 years old from Pooraka Football Club, is set to play his first SANFL match after being named in a forward pocket.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the ground, 25-year-old Lee Hoey, recruited from Morphett Vale and son of past player Greig Hoey is also a confirmed inclusion after a strong start to the season in the twos.

Big-bodied midfielder Ben Heaslip and rebounding defender Jaidan Kappler could also be in line for a recall after standout performances in the Reserves last Thursday, but must survive the cut of an extended interchange.

Following the League match, the Panthers will be awarding the inaugural Frank Barry Medal in a new Anzac Round tradition for the club.

Meanwhile, in the Reserves several changes have been made due to State U18 and League commitments. Full squads below.
