Santos is coming off a disappointing loss to Western Tigers in the Stag Nations Cup final on Saturday and will no doubt want to put that behind them and remind supporters and opposing teams of their ability.
Captain Job Caesar is expected to pull the strings from mid-field, while Delon David, Keith Caines, the experienced Jermin Fraser, Samuel Hunte, Ryan October and Vashile Cantzlaar will no doubt offer much needed support.
