2-2
If it was 3-1, that would have been a good start , after playing GL/NW/AC/WA


Ive seen the Panthers in 3 games , they have actually looked good in patches
Liam Fitt debuted against WA in round 4 , looked impressive, and has a booming left foot

2-2 is ok, but have not played against PA/ST/WWT or the improved NA as yet
Predicted minor round finish
6th-9th

When you you lose 14 players from your list- 13 of whom played at league level previously...it leaves a gaping hole. The club has picked up a few recruits..Brooksby returning, Biemans, Whittlesea and Summerton, but it seems the club will be keen to promote local young talent. Liam Fitt's debut v West was one of the best first game performances from an 18 yo that I've seen for many years, he even impressed some West supporters.
This season could be a long one, already we have seen plenty of good footy and plenty of ordinary stuff too- all this coming from inexperience and taking time for things to gel.
The fact that the club is doing it tough financially doesnt help with recruiting. Because of our poor financial position, thankfully, the sanfl have come to our aid -hah~! -imposing a $50k reduction on our Salary cap.....which should help us enormously..

10 games
7 wins
3 losses

Currently in 3rd position
Excellent season to date
Jarrod Wright and his assistants have far exceeded a lot of peoples expectations in 2018
SA have knocked off NA + ST in away wins , thats very impressive and proves they are now not only a final five aspirant, but also a hope of winning something they have not done since 1964

Expected Minor Round finish
1st-5th

Get that feeling that something special is potentially brewing down South - Winning and winning well AND copping more than a share of injury.

Not too many first choice players injured though. They are going well and could be a chance. Prediction at 3rd or 4th.

Not too many first choice.....???


Nick Schwartz-season
Sam Overall - season
Matt Rose- shoulder 6weeks
Tom Whittlesea -shoulder 4 weeks
Nathan Krueger - concussion -1 week
Biemans - hammy - 1 week..?

thankfully Souths' lack of depth- not helped by the sanfl imposing a 50k salary cap handicap -has been alleviated by the the introduction of a fleet of 17-18 year old locals, who have debuted and are playing very well.
Jarrod Wright is doing a fantastic job, with some sage like assistants and former teamates in Handby and Thewlis.
I think South can finish top 5, with a bit of luck, top 3. And with Port & Adelaide (who were Souths finals nemesis in the Gotch years) looking like missing finals action this year...who knows..?

Which 6 comes out then ? Other clubs have cap reductions.
It has taken a long time to realise the club needs in to invest in its zone and it was at its own detriment.
The SANFL have imposed that on a few clubs . South just dont do it well considering the free kicks they have got. A 1 dollar peppercorn agreement and the club is in financial difficulties is hard to believe. Not may supporters , huge growth opportunities and recent success yet still dwindling crowds.

South were in a great financial position and no longer are . That is the question that needs answering.

Who do you support seaside?
pretty sure you wont supply an answer to that....I'm assuming that you want to fire cheap shots and keep yourself as small a target as possible..
..
Im tipping that your home ground is a ground that was supplied by your local council, complete with improvements ie grandstands changerooms etc, its also maintained by your council as well; and no doubt the council helps out with the water & power bill for you as well.
South have had to purchase all the improvements at Hickinbotham-all of them, also have to pay the water,(can tell you the water bill for the changerooms only at Hickinbotham is in excess of 100k /year.).; power etc...
and the much maligned Onkaparinga Council do absolutely as little as possible for the SAFC.
