KNTFL A grade teams have been announced for this weekend's round 3 matches - and there's some big ins and outs.
All four teams in the two candidates for "match of the day" - Mundulla v Bordertown and Padthaway v Kaniva/Leeor United - have important changes.
BORDERTOWN will be bolstered by the return of two interleague and premiership key position players - Kane Cuthbertson and Jed Jarrett, as well as Sam Devitt. But the Roosters have lost recruit Lee Staple and promising youngster Lachie Eats.
The undefeated MUNDULLA has returned veteran Jon Mock to the forward pocket after a stellar start to the season in the reserves, along with back pocket Craig Wiese, while Nathan Milligan and Tyne Excell will miss.
At PADTHAWAY, the home side has made just one change, with ruckman Michael Hoffman coming back in for small Seb Townsend.
They will host K/L UNITED, who have been strengthened by the inclusion of rover Matt Skrypek among three changes, but former captain Shane Vivian is out.
KYBYBOLITE has swung four changes, most significantly bringing in last year's coach Scott Carberry to play as a tall forward along with Will Miles and youngsters James Kelson and Isaac Noles. The most significant of four outs is rover and past captain Mark Slotegraaf with injury.
They will play BORDER DISTRICTS, who have recalled recruit Ky Miller.
LUCINDALE has also made four changes to the side that won the club's first game since 2012 last week. It has included former star Gerard McGrath, who hasn't played for a couple of years after shifting away and recovering from serious injury, as well as premiership players Tristan Menz and Brad Hocking. On the negative side, the Roos have lost ruckman Tim Walsh who played a guest game last week, and gun midfielder Sam Graetz to injury.
That won't help in their imposing challenge of knocking off reigning premiers PENOLA, who have made only one change, losing young gun Luke Gray to injury.
KEITH will travel to the seaside and has made only one change, while home team KINGSTON have made four changes including the return of key position players Matt Williams and Josh Gould.
