Last weekend the Panthers got their 2016 finals campaign underway in the Qualifying Final against Sturt. Unfortunately, the Double Blues came away with the victory. Fortunately, the Panthers hold a double-chance and will get a second go at September glory this weekend.

Both South and Adelaide have enjoyed a successful 2016 so far, the Panthers enjoying a period atop the ladder and winning all 10 of their games at Hickinbotham Oval and the Crows qualifying for their first SANFL Finals since joining the competition - for an in-depth breakdown of this weekend's match up check out this week's Match Preview here

Further compounding the Panthers pain, they not only lost the match to Sturt last Saturday, but they also lost emerging utility Tyson Brown for the remainder of the season after the 23-year-old injured his hamstring in the opening minutes of the Qualifying Final.

Brad Gotch and co. have given themselves plenty of options to replace the versatile Brown. Coming into the 23-man squad to face Adelaide, which must be trimmed by two before the first bounce on Sunday, is the speed and excitement of Emmanuel Irra, experience and versatility of Nathan Daniel and strength and size of Alex Cailotto.

Each player has enjoyed stints with the League side in 2016 and has been in good form in the Reserves at the back end of the season.

Over the past month, Irra has averaged 27.3 touches per game, while also kicking three goals and handing out 10 score assists.

Likewise, Daniel has collected plenty of Burley across halfback over the last month (24.3 possessions a game), while Cailotto has been a rock in defence since returning from an ankle injury suffered in the seniors Round 10 battle against North Adelaide.
