KNTFL round 14: team selections

KANIVA/Leeor United has some big outs for Saturday's KNTFL football match of the round against Padthaway.

The Cougars (second on ladder) would have loved to be at full strength for the game against the ladder leaders, but they have made five changes with the outs including playing coach and ruckman Neil Reeve and fellow travelling recruits Ryan Richardson (also a ruckman) and Matt Skrypek (a rover).

Kaniva/Leeor has brought in four young locals plus traveller Lachie Seed to replace them.

Padthaway (1st on ladder) on the other hand is far more settled, with Kieron Hicks going out and being replaced by another midfielder, Darcy Boyanton.

There will be plenty of feeling in the high stakes game between arch-rivals Bordertown (5th) and Mundulla (4th), and both sides are quite settled.

Bordertown has brought in Nick Hampel and Tom Wheelen to replace Ty Devitt and Mitch Dahlitz, while Mundulla has regained goalsneak Boyd Packer at the expense of Devon Ridgway.

Keith (6th) and Kingston (9th) have swung the changes for their match-up, both making four alterations. Keith has los a couple of handy players in ruckman Hugo Drogmuller and forward Jason Snajdar, while Kingston gets back ruckman Matt Williams and has swapped some younger players in and out.

Penola (3rd) has lost three key players for its clash against Lucindale (7th) but will still be confident of victory. Ben McIntyre is away on State duties and fellow midfielders Jon Copping and Shaun Morris are also out, while Lucindale has regained rover Tristan Menz.

Border Districts (10th) will have mercurial Elijah Ware back in to face Kybybolite (11th) as well as former Kyby player Luke Crossling for his first A grade game of the season, while the Eagles have lost goalkicker Shaun Taylor. Kyby has made six changes to the side belted by Lucindale last week, with goalkicker and ex-coach Scott Carberry and speedy Jack McKay among the ins, while solid Tom Cooper and young midfielder Bill Munn are two of the outs.

Naracoorte (8th) has the bye this week.
