Dees fit and firing

GAME CHANGER: Milawa on-baller Carl Groth has quickly become one of the most damaging players in the competition.

MILAWA is set to take on ladder leader Glenrowan with a near full strength side tomorrow, with Nathan Hooper, Ryan Hussey, Chris Oates and Luke Sims all set to return for the Demons.

Hooper and Oates both missed Milawa’s big win over Goorambat last round, while Hussey has been out for two matches and is set to add some muscle to the midfield rotations.

But perhaps the most exciting prospect for Demons fans is the chance to see Sims run out on the field for the first time since round one.

Coach Mick Newton is certainly excited, with Sims fitter than ever after completing the Cairns Ironman last weekend – a 3.8km swim, 180km ride and 42.2km run.

“Luke had a bit of a knee complaint earlier in the year, but he was never going to play over the past four weeks because he was training for the triathlon,” Newton said.

“He’ll come into the side as the fittest player by a mile without even having played any footy, so I’m really looking forward to seeing how he goes.”
