The loss of Chris Jansen is a blow, but I'm sure the Dogs will recruit to cover him.

I predict a very good 2018 for Central Districts
Brilliant finish to 2017 , went very well after re signing one of the greatest SANFL coaches of all time ,  Roy Laird in the latter part of the 2017 season

Chris Jansen will be a loss
The bulldogs look strong for 2018 and a flag contender, if they gain a couple of good ins, that will further enhance their chances

Scrappy we can go well if we play the footy we played late in the season if we serve up the other rubbish from earlier we will struggle again.

They weren't fit enough earlier in the season, this will be rectified for next season

I compare Roy Laird in the SANFL with Bart Cummings with Melbourne Cups
Some of Lairds past seasons sides seem to peak by finals time
As for 2017 , did Laird have CD peaking by finals ?
Early in 2017 CD teams were not finishing off in the 2nd halfs
By finals they seemed to be fitter , and got on a roll

I thought they were just a tad unlucky not to beat Sturt in the 2017 final
If they did they might have won the premiership

Talking to one of the senior coaching staff recently, they were confident Josh would be in red, white and blue in 2018.

Hopefully for the Dogs sake he is, because he has Magarey level ability. If he can start 2018 as he finished this season, the Dogs will be much better off for it.

Sadly, you were onto something, mate.

Couldn't agree more. Showed in the finals series what he is capable of.

Josh Glenn officially is an official OUT for the Dogs, retiring from SANFL football.

Confirmed by the man himself, on his Social Media pages this afternoon.

Will be playing in the BLG Competition again with Willaston.

That's a shame Phil. He was an enjoyable player to watch, the likes of which the competition can't afford to keep losing.
