SANFL side set to tackle Centrals

In: N Barkla

Out: F Evans (AFL), H Jackson (concussion), A Turner, J Weidemann (omitted)

Port Adelaide has named its team to take on Central District at Alberton Oval this Saturday afternoon.

Tom Jonas is set to captain the side for a second consecutive week, with Magpies captain Cam Sutcliffe still sidelined with a calf injury.

Small forward Orazio Fantasia will play his second game since returning from injury, while mid-season draftee Quinton Narkle has been named after making an immediate impact in his first SANFL outing last weekend.

Backman Nathan Barkla will slot back into the side after serving a one-match ban, while midfielder Hugh Jackson has entered concussion protocols and will miss this round.

Ryan Burton, Riley Bonner, Ollie Lord and Francis Evans have been named AFL emergencies, with those not required on Friday night to be available for Saturday’s SANFL match.

The Seven broadcast game will see local personalities take part in a half-time torpedo punt contest and ice bucket challenge in support of MND South Australia, ahead of Monday’s MND Big Freeze at the MCG.

Saturday’s match gets under way at 1:10pm at Alberton Oval with gates open from 11:40am. Game day details, including ticketing information, can be viewed here.
