THE cut-throat semi final between North Ballarat City and Darley this week is shaping up as a possible clash of the walking wounded.
Both sides have a growing injury list, with up to six players from each side to possibly miss the Sunday clash.
North City ruckman Tristan Cartledge is arguably the biggest name under the microscope, sporting possibly the biggest injury.
Cartledge will undergo an x-ray tomorrow to learn if he has broken bones in his right hand.
Each side is facing their own injury concerns, with Redan and Sunbury both getting through the weekend almost unscathed.
Darley: Shane O'Bree (test), Dane Grenfell (test), Brendan Porter (likely), Darren Leonard (test), Brad Inglis (likely).
North Ballarat City: Tristan Cartledge (unknown), Derick Micallef (likely), Daniel Kilpatrick (test), Mitch Jenkins (test), Tyler George (likely), Ayden George (likely)
Redan: Jarrett Giampaolo (test), Dean Chester (likely)
Sunbury: Andrew Duhau (test), Jack Sullivan (test), Dale Cuinik (test), Xavier Linton (returning from suspension)
