Team News: City’s Round 24 squad


The team is in for Friday night’s clash with Brisbane. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side in our Team News presented by Lotus Living.

Jamie Maclaren is the big in for this week’s contest as the January signing looks to continue his impressive scoring record on Friday night.

Maclaren sat out the match against the Wanderers with mild concussion as a ball to the side of the head in training saw medical staff take full precaution with the player’s well-being at the forefront.

After a week on the sidelines, Maclaren has been give the tick of approval to face his previous side.

Dario Vidosic and Nathaniel Atkinson have also been added to the extended squad with both players looking to secure a position in the final 16.

The only casualty from last week is Iacopo La Rocca who has succumbed to a hamstring injury. The defender will look to recover swiftly as his side prepares for an important month before the Finals Series.
