Bartlett makes A grade debut

By DARRYN NUFER

BOYNE Island Tannum Sands will blood its fifth youngster this season when Nathan Bart-lett takes the field for today's AFL Capricornia clash with Glenmore at Boyne Island.

The big man, a first-season senior player and 2004 club junior, was promoted to the Agrade team for the round seven Trend Interiors Carpet Court premiership match of the round following an impressive hit-out last weekend in reserve grade.

The change is expected to be one of many, with BITS coach Rod Spice looking for an edge to overcome the unbeaten Bulls and return to the top of the competition table.

While the Saints lost by 38 points to North Mackay in their AFL Community Challenge match at the Gabba last Saturday night, Spice took the opportunity to make several positional changes in the final quarter.

"We did experiment a bit ? North Mackay played a similar style of game to what Glenmore played when we met earlier this season so that's why we did that,'' Spice said.

When asked about possible positional changes for today's clash, Spice was understandably not giving too much away.

"There are one or two.''

Glenmore coach Greg Bowler said his team would be depleted with a number of players out due to work commitments.

Round 7 ? (Today) Brothers v Gladstone (Victoria Park), BITS v Glenmore (Boyne Island), CQU Panthers v Yeppoon (Rockhampton Cricket Grounds).
