ANGLESEA co-coach Jordan Keras will return for Saturday’s must-win clash with Ocean Grove in a boost to the club’s finals hopes.

Keras missed last week’s loss to Barwon Heads with a toe issue plaguing him since the win over Newcomb in Round 8.

“It kept popping up, and I wanted to have one game where I could coach from the sidelines,” he said.

“Last week was the right time for that, and I’m ready to go this week.”

Depending on other results, a win over the Grubbers could have the ‘Seas just a half-a-game behind fifth-placed Geelong Amateur.

However, that’s dependent on Ammos and Queenscliff losing to Drysdale and Modewarre, respectively.

“This will be one that keeps the momentum rolling for us,” Keras said.

“If we get the win, it’ll see us stay within reach of that five.”


Stability has been an issue for the Roos, with Keras and co-coach Paul Nigro making up to six weekly changes.

That includes this week, with Chae Goldsworth (concussion) a definite out and versatile big man Ash Caldwell (hamstring) no certainty to take on the Grubbers.

The experienced Jordan Harrison and talented youngster Noah Collins will both play.

“We’ll probably have five or six changes,” Keras said,

We’ve just got to try and put together a side that can play together consistently.

“It’s been a challenge throughout the year, unfortunately.”
