NORTH Ballarat Roosters have decided to rest Luke Kiel for Sunday’s clash with reigning VFL premier Williamstown.
Kiel is being given a week off to overcome a series niggly injuries.
One of nine players on the Selkirk Roosters’ list with more than 50 VFL appearances, he is also one of eight to have played in all 10 rounds this season.
Coleman Schache, James Keeble, Matt Austin, Nick Rippon, Rowan Marshall, Thomas Templeton and Tom Schnerring are also yet to miss a game.
North Ballarat has made four changes for the round 12 fixture at Williamstown.
Young first-year defender Josh Webster, who was rested for the trip to Frankston, Daniel Cox, Ben Simpson and Coby Perry all return.
Cox has been declared fit after missing one match with concussion.
Perry will play his second game as 23rd player. He played against Geelong in round three.
Simpson played five times early in the season, with his last game before going to North Ballarat City in the BFL being against Port Melbourne in round seven.
Along with Kiel, North Ballarat has lost Andrew Hooper for six weeks with a knee injury.
It continues as horror run for the former Western Bulldogs small forward.
He has managed only four matches after shoulder, ankle and calf issues.
Tom Taurau returns to Stawell Warriors in the Wimmera Football League, while and James Gow plays with North Ballarat Rebels in the TAC Cup after being 23rd player.
Meanwhile remain without ruckman Orren Stephenson with a knee problem.
Injury list: Orren Stephenson (knee) 1-2 weeks, Xavier Vearing (ankle) 4 weeks, Glen Coleman (hamstring) 3-4 weeks, Andrew Hooper (knee) 6 weeks, Liam Youl (hamstring) 7 weeks, Louis Herbert (shoulder) season), Shaun Lyle (abductor) season
