West Adelaide v Glenelg
Friday 7.10pm, City Mazda Stadium
Radio: 5RPH (#westbays)
West Adelaide has included three players for the first time this season for its match against Glenelg at City Mazda Stadium on Friday night.
Midfielders Simon Dean and Logan Hill, together with utility Adam Hartlett, will appear at league level for the first occasion in 2013 after being included in the Bloods’ squad of 23.
Captain Ryan Ferguson (head knock) and former Crow Chris Schmidt (flu) will also rejoin the side after being late withdrawals for the Anzac Day match last week.
Experienced pair Shane Birss and Aaron Fielke were unavailable after being suspended by the SANFL’s Incident Review Panel during the week while Brad Kirk was relegated to the reserves despite taking ‘’Mark of the Week’’ for round five.
Hawthorn recruit Travis Tuck is expected to play despite being hindered by a broken finger during the week.

Glenelg has been rocked by the omission of Crows pair Jarryd Lyons and Shaun McKernan for its clash with West Adelaide at City Mazda Stadium on Friday night.
Lyons, the leading possession winner in the SANFL, has been in red-hot form all season while McKernan kicked five goals in the Tigers’ win against Sturt last Saturday night.
Carl Nicholson has been sent back to the reserves.
Aggressive teenager Billy Hayes (19, 178cm and 75kg) is in line to make his league debut after performing strongly in the seconds as a midfielder/small forward.
‘’He’s always been a competitive animal,’’ Glenelg talent manager Brenton Hole said of Hayes, originally from Bordertown.
‘’He is a very strong tackler and the boys have been very happy with the defensive pressure he’s been applying up forward.’’
Hayes is joined in the Tigers’ squad of 23 by fellow inclusions Hayden Jolly, Lachlan Earl and Riley McFarlane while Riley Milne has recovered from a neck injury.
Former Central District key forward James Lawton has been cleared to play at Tigerland and will begin his career with the Bays in the reserves on Friday evening.

Norwood will blood key forward Liam Davis against North Adelaide at Prospect on Saturday.
Unearthed by Redlegs coach Nathan Bassett while playing at the Houghton Football Club, Davis is expected to provide assistance to Brady Dawe in the ruck while also acting as a marking target inside the attacking 50m arc.
Davis replaces ruckman Sam Baulderstone who is expected to miss the next four matches after breaking his hand at training during the week.
Goalsneak Josh Donohue and defender Jace Bode (suspension) also were unable to be considered for selection.
Joining Davis in the Redlegs’ squad of 23 is Jesse Aish, Mark Evans, Gavin Hughes and Matt Thomas, who acted as the Power’s emergency last weekend.

James Watt and Power-listed Brendan AhChee were also called upon to confront the Bulldogs, with two players still to be trimmed from the squad before the bounce.

South Adelaide has recalled former captain Nick Murphy for its contest against Woodville-West Torrens at Maughan Thiem Hyundai Oval on Sunday.
Murphy, who was dropped after the Panthers’ 106-point loss to West Adelaide in round three, has been in stunning form in the reserves for the past fortnight.
‘’We were always confident in his ability,’’ South football manager Neill Sharpe said of Murphy.
‘’There were just parts of his game he needed to work on. He’s certainly earned his spot back in the side.’’
The prolific midfielder was joined in the Panthers’ squad of 23 by former Eagle Nathan Daniel and ruckman Daniel Bass, who will play his first league game of the season.
Crows-listed ruckman Ben Dowdell was sent back to the reserves.
