Betta Teams: Seniors Round 11 - South Adelaide vs Adelaide
Panthers host Crows at Hickinbotham Oval
Fresh off an impressive win over the reigning premiers, South Adelaide play host to the SANFL Crows in Noarlunga this Sunday.
The Panthers will make at least three changes to the side that knocked off Sturt on the Queen's Birthday.
Young forwards Nathan Kreuger (concussion) and Liam Fitt (suspension) were unavailable for selection, while 17-year-old Tate Coleman has been named in the South Australia Under-18s side that will take on Victoria Country at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.
Veteran small defender Scott Taylor is the only confirmed inclusion at this stage, named in a back pocket for his first SANFL Macca's League game of the season.
Once again, Jarrad Wright is keeping his options open at the selection table.
Man mountain Alex Aurrichio and the pacy Connor Fairlie could give the Panthers forward line two very different looks.
Meanwhile, two more Panthers juniors could be unleashed as potential debutants, as midfielder Coby Helyar (19, 188cm, 84kg) and forward Jackson Elmes (18, 187cm, 85kg) give Wright further flexibility.
Helyar, originally from Dudley United in the Kangaroo Island Football League, has impressed in his nine Reserves games this season, leading the Panthers goalkicking from the midfield.
Elmes (Victor Harbor - GSFL) has made an early impression during his first senior campaign with the Reserves as a strong-marking forward.
All four will need to survive the shortening of an extended interchange to line up against the Crows.
While there will be no Reserves game this weekend, but get to the game early to see some of the Southern Football League's talented youngsters in action.
Two curtain raisers between Port Noarlunga and Morphett Vale (10.30am) and Reynella and Aldinga's (12.00pm) Under-13s sides will be played before the League action kicks off at 2.10pm.
