The Buffaloes mens and womens squads to play Glenelg will be reduced from 41 to 28 (men) and 26 (women) in the days leading up to the January 23 clash. Both matches will have six players on the interchange bench and a number of emergencies. Mens coach Chris Baksh will be tasked with making additions and deletions from the initial squad as early Battle for rep spots heats up as Glenelg looms as next week when he meets with chairman of selectors Shannon Rusca. Its an unfortunate situation in any form of footy, let alone a representative game when a lot of pride is on the line, Baksh said. But we need to get the best side we can on the ground and that means structurally as well, so weve got a lot of work to do. Right now I cant fault any of the players from those weve had at training, their enthusiasm and attitude has been first class for all the right reasons. Womens coach Tarmon Elliott will trim his squad to 26 four days before the twilight clash with the Glenelg women. The vibe has been very good with the girls, were getting good numbers at training despite the Christmas break where they all know there is a job to do, Elliott said. Were pretty fortunate with injury, (Katie) Streader from PINT is the only worry there and she looks like shell be back this week with her club which is good news. It definitely wont be a walk in the park. Theyre quite a big side compared to us and present a pretty big challenge. GREY MORRIS NTFL Buffaloes coach Chris Baksh.
