Padthaway swings footy changes

PADTHAWAY has made four changes for its big KNTFL match of the round clash against in-form Mundulla on Saturday.

Sitting on top of the ladder, the Lions have gained one big gun but lost a couple of others as they seek to underline their premiership credentials against the third-placed Mundulla side.

Padthaway has regained forward line gun Ian Perrie - named at centre half forward - as well as midfielder Kieron Hicks, but has lost forward Jono Brice and defender Rick Hoffman.

Mundulla remains unchanged after continuing its barnstorming run of wins with a victory over top three chance Kaniva/Leeor United last week.

Penola (2nd on ladder) and Border Districts (10th) have made nine changes between them for their clash at Goroke,

Penola regains ruckman Will Banton and midfielders Kane Ransom and Luke Gray among five changes, with key defenders Spencer Jackman and Tom Pearce among the outs.

Borders will be strengthened by the inclusion of first choice A graders Nyani Thomas, Elijah Ware, Corey Burr and Nick Thomson, with Ky Miller the most notable out.

Kybybolite (11th) has made three changes for its game against Keith (5th), with A graders Steve Craig and Mark Slotegraaf back in, while Keith has swapped Jed Forrest and Will Sandford for Ben Farmer and Callum McMurray.

Naracoorte (7th) and Bordertown (6th) look settled for their games, with Naracoorte welcoming back Brett Gould but losing ruckman Michael Childs, while Bordertown has lost Jed Jarrett and promoted Brent Lodewyk from the reserves.

Kaniva/Leeor United (4th) has most four changes for its game against Lucindale (8th), most notably regaining rover Matt Skrypek. Lucindale will run out behind Aaron Smart in his 250th game and has made five changes, getting back defender Henry Legoe and midfielder Rob Handbury but losing Tristan Menz and Josh Teakle.

Kingston has the bye this weekend.
