NAB Cup Lessons 1

by Motts on March 2, 2015

What have you learned from the first 6 matches of the NAB Cup? Who’s been traded into and out of your squad?


Game Chat – Crows v Roos

by Motts on March 1, 2015

It will be the first hit-out in the royal blue and white for a number of Kangaroos in Port Lincoln today. A promising summer on the training track for free agent acquisitions Shaun Higgins and Jarrad Waite should see them play a prominent role against the Crows.

Meanwhile three of the players picked up in the National and Rookie Drafts have their chance to play for the club, with Sam Durdin, Daniel Nielson and Will Fordham all named in the 29 man squad.

There are a number of North’s key position players not making the trip to Adelaide, with the likes of Aaron Black, Lachlan Hansen, Nathan Grima, Scott Thompson and Michael Firrito all not playing for one reason or another. It allows the youngsters, Durdin and Nielson especially, the time to shine at either end of the ground if given game time.


Game Chat – Suns v Cats

by Motts on March 1, 2015

There’s a lot of fresh faces in the Suns squad to run the glasses over today. High draftees Jarrod Garlett (pick No. 15) and Touk Miller (pick No. 29) will get their first taste of senior football. The ambitious pair have set their sights on an early debut this campaign, so they will be looking to put some runs on the board sooner rather than later.

Mature-aged rookies Adam Saad and Keegan Brooksby have both played senior football at state league level previously with Coburg (VFL) and South Adelaide (SANFL) respectively. Both have been rewarded after eye-catching summers on the track.

The Eski and Mitch Hallahan will both be getting around in new colours after changing teams in the offseason. While Alex Sexton and Matt Shaw have been two Suns to impress new coach Eade on the training track this summer; both will be out to press their claims for a spot in Gold Coast’s round one side against Melbourne.


Game Chat – Dogs v Tigers

by MJ on February 28, 2015

Whitten Oval hosts today’s match. Motts will be no doubt keeping an eye fixed on Bontempelli after including him in his squad reveal yesterday. I’ll be cheering on my Tiges, but more importantly checking out the young talent that will be on show, with the big guns in Cotchin, Martin, Deledio and Maric all no-shows.
