BETTA Teams Selection: Round 4 vs Sturt

Top of the table Panthers take on the Double Blues in an ANZAC round blockbuster. 

On a weekend where Australians remember and reflect on those who made the ultimate sacrifice, the Panthers will one again present the Frank Barry Medal

Introduced for the ANZAC Round clash against Sturt in 2019, The Frank Barry Medal will be presented to the South Adelaide player whose conduct and play during the game best demonstrates the qualities of skill, courage in adversity, self-sacrifice, team work and fair play that befit the Anzac Spirit.

The first recipient of the medal was captain Matt Rose, who earned the medal in 2019. 

The Medal is named after South Adelaide's first Magarey Medallist, Frank "Dinky" Barry, who was awarded South Australian football's highest individual honour as the competition's 'fairest and most brilliant player' in 1915.

A brilliant rover, he was known for his strong mark, cool and calm approach, precision with hand and foot, and his love to run and baulk.

Barry went on to serve in World War I, embarking with the First AIF to serve in France.

He fought in the horrific conditions and carnage of the Western Front and achieved the rank of second lieutenant. During this time Barry contracted trench foot, requiring periods of time in hospital, and despite surviving the war would never return to playing football due to complications with his foot.

The medal will be presented at post-match presentations held inside of Jimmy Deane's Bistro from approx. 6:30pm on Saturday night, an event everyone is welcome to attend. 

Meanwhile, the Panthers turn their attention to Sturt, who are coming off a strong win over West Adelaide last week. 

The Panthers will make one confirmed change, with young gun Jason Horne coming out due to AFL Academy commitments.

This will open the door for a possible return of key forward Sam Overall, who has recovered from injury.

Ben Heaslip also joins the extended squad after being ruled out late last week due to a little niggle.

Jesse McKinnon and Fraser Turner also join the extended squad of 25.

Former Crow and Blue Bryce Gibbs has become the third Panther in as many weeks to take home the Channel 7 Goal of the Week with this classy sealer against the Magpies last week. 

The South Adelaide Reserves moved on quickly from last weeks match against the Eagles. 

After a positive week on the track, the Reserves are looking to notch up the first win for 2021. 

Former Tiger Ben Sawford returns from injury that has kept him sidelined for the start of 2021. 

The action kicks off from 9:50am with the South Adelaide Under-18s, followed by the Reserves at 12:25pm and League at 3:05pm, as the Channel 7 Match of the Round.
