Elder Swans challenge their younger opponents



? A NIGGLING calf injury is a strong chance of ruling Yep- poon's Steve Lauritz out of the Yeppoon Swans Oldies versus Youngies Australian Football clash at Swan Park on Satur- day.

Lauritz was planning to line up for the Oldies, but believes his match-day role might be re- stricted to strapping duties.

"Strapping a few ankles will be paramount, especially for some of the Oldies.''

The Oldies have bragging rights after winning the last contest three years ago ? a win Lauritz possibly puts down to some extra players on the field.

While Lauritz is an uncertain starter Sebastian "Basha'' Pal- ma will pull on the boots for the Oldies.

Team line-ups will not be fin- alised until game day, but it is hoped the forward line includes players such as Steve Pickering and Adrian Jones while on the backline David Bibby and Brad Palma could hit the field.

In the young brigade are play- ers such as Marty Rayner, a for- mer junior State player from Tasmania, and Victoria's Trent Rapp.

There are some slight rule changes with the current Swans only allowed to bounce the ball once and for one quarter they cannot kick the ball between the 50m lines.

This could be their only hit- out before the AFL Capricornia season starts on April 1 with this game starting at 1pm.
