Paul Seedsman will play in Sunday's SANFL Semi-Final against South Adelaide

Paul Seedsman headlines four inclusions for Adelaide’s SANFL Semi-Final against South Adelaide on Sunday.

The long-kicking defender will be joined by returning talls Alex Keath and Luke Lowden and utility Ricky Henderson for the do-or-die final at Adelaide Oval.

Seedsman was a late withdrawal from last week’s Elimination Final against Central District.

The 24-year-old hasn’t played since Adelaide’s AFL clash with Brisbane over a month ago due to a corked buttock injury. His last SANFL appearance was against Woodville-West Torrens in late July.

Lowden was also a late omission from last week’s win over the Bulldogs. The 206cm ruckman/forward is set to play his first game in four weeks after sustaining an ankle injury against Norwood.

Key defender Alex Keath also hasn’t played since the Round 20 clash with the Redlegs. The athletic rookie has overcome a spinal injury and has been named on an extended interchange bench.

Henderson, Reilly O’Brien and Riley Knight are the emergencies for Saturday night’s AFL Elimination Final.

Crafty goalkicker Dylan Schoenmakers and hard-running midfielder Scott Spriggs are the only confirmed outs at this stage.

Adelaide’s SANFL team will be finalised on approximately an hour before the first bounce on Sunday.
