EIGHT CHANGES BOLSTER RESERVES
Coach Kiran Verma has been able to bolster his side with eight inclusions for the Reserves clash with Morningside on Sunday
The Pies suffered a large defeat last week at a hands of a red hot Palm Beach outfit, but this side looks stronger physically and also with added football nous and experience.
Key inclusions are the trio returning from the Senior side after performing well at Senior level, but forced out by returning regular senior players.
Jesse Hampel is still in the top three leading goal kickers despite limited games and will make a big difference up forward as will the inclusion of Redlands aligned Harrison Kerr, who comes back in after missing over a month with a hand injury.
Also back in are key defender Harry Marshall and midfielder/forward Rory Johnson both having good seasons this year.
Other key inclusions are Premiership ruckman Gerard Moore and midfielder/defender Chris Hunt, who both add physical strength and footy smarts to the side, invaluable commodities in an otherwise relatively young side.
The Pies will be keen to put last week out of their minds and there is no better way than put in a good performance and defeat a finals rival in the process.
