West v North Prem Final SIDE

West v North
Sunday 29 September - 3:10pm - AAMI Stadium

West

West Adelaide captain Ryan Ferguson has been rated a 50-50 chance of playing in Sunday’s Preliminary Final against North Adelaide at AAMI Stadium.

Ferguson, who suffered a severe case of concussion in the Qualifying Final, missed the Bloods’ loss to Norwood in the Second Semi-Final.

After completing a light training session on Tuesday night, the Fos Williams Medallist must prove himself at training on Thursday and Saturday if he is to front the Roosters.

The former Melbourne backman has been listed at half-back in West’s 23-man squad but is no certainty of taking his place in the side.

‘’Tuesday night was a lighter night (of training),’’ West football manager Andrew Marks said.

‘’So there were only a few drills but he was certainly out there running around. I think we will get a better idea tonight and on Saturday morning.

‘’When you are dealing with a concussion the most important part is to make sure his head is OK after intense exercise. There has to be no sign of headache or dizziness.’’

Along with Ferguson, midfielders Josh Schiller, Dean Poynton and Nick Homburg have been added to the squad while ruckman Peter Nelson has been listed on the extended interchange bench.

If Nelson plays, he could lead the ruck which would allow former Power rookie Daniel Webb to provide a target inside attacking 50.
‘’We are looking for forward options,’’ Marks said.

‘’With Pete, you can play him in the ruck and possibly push Webby forward so that’s where that thought is coming into it.’’

Leadership group member Aaron Fielke (shoulder) and key forward Michael Still (thumb) have been ruled out for the rest of the season after reporting injuries in the Second Semi-Final.

Utility Chris Bonney and key defender Brad Kirk have been dropped.

F: Rankine, Hartlett, Beech
HF: Silverlock, Keough, Birss
