Round 13: South vs Eagles - Teams
Panthers Eye Eagles Attack
South Adelaide are looking to increase gap between second and third on the ladder as they travel to Maughan Thiem Hyundai Oval on Saturday afternoon - League 2:10pm, Reserves 11:25am; Adult $14, Concession $8, Under-18s FREE.
A win over the Eagles will see South move two games clear of the third-placed Eagles and could see them finish the round equal first with Sturt, depending on the result between the Double Blues and Redlegs on Sunday afternoon.
Travelling to Woodville also begins a crucial stretch of away games for Brad Gotch's men, who have played seven of their first 10 at home and will now be on the road until Round 17 in late July.
After enduring a tough run with injuries and suspensions South have finally found some stability in their lineup and could name an unchanged lineup to tackle Woodville-West Torrens.
Tough midfielder Nic Schwarz, who was a late withdrawal against Port Adelaide last weekend and forward Jackson McMahon have been named to Gotch's extended bench.
Defensive pair Alex Cailotto and Cam de Visser will make their return from injury through the Reserves, after recovering from an ankle and hand ailments respectively.
Hickinbotham Oval has proven to be an impenetrable fortress for the Panthers, with seven wins from seven games at home. Now it is time to get behind the boys as they chase success away from home!
It is sure to be an interesting matchup, as the league's most potent offensive team South test their firepower against the Eagles' league leading defence.
