TEAM: Turner, Simpkin in

August 11, 2017 5:00 PM

Small-forwards Kayne Turner and Jy Simpkin will provide plenty of energy for North against Hawthorn, with the pair recalled for Sunday’s match.

Turner hasn’t played since June due to a knee injury, but was a key contributor in the first half of the season, booting 15 goals in 12 games.

The Roos opted to bring the number 28 straight back into the side, rather than coming through the VFL.

Simpkin was a late withdrawal against Collingwood, but is set to play his 11th career game against the Hawks in Launceston.

Josh Williams has been omitted from the North 22, after Nick Larkey was left out of the initial 25.
