BETTA Teams Selection: Round 19 v West Adelaide
Panthers could make up to 7 changes for their crucial clash against West Adelaide.
Having sat on the disappointing loss to the Magpies for 12 days, the Panthers have a host of additions to the extended squad.
Speedy Mitch O'Neill returns to the squad having recovered from a hamstring strain, while tall timber Bailey Griffiths has also recovered from his concussion against North.
Daniel Nobes is also in the mix for a League call up after kicking seven in the Reserves round 18 loss against Centrals.
The scenario is simple for the Panthers, a win will lock in a return to finals, while a loss would mean South will be at the mercy of the result between North Adelaide and Sturt, needing Sturt to lose.
Should the Panthers return to finals, it would be the first time since 1991/1992 that South Adelaide have made it to the major round in consecutive seasons.
On Monday night, Dual Magarey Medallist Joel Cross informed the club that he will hang up his Puma Kings at the end of the season.
Saturday's game will be Cross' last at Flinders University Stadium.
For the Reserves, they head into their last game of 2021 and will be boosted by the addition of Reserves captain Aaron Douglass.
Tyson Brown will also line up in the Reserves having overcome his latest injury set back.
All the action kicks off from 11:30am with the Reserves, followed by League at 2:10pm.
