Mr Fuller wrote:More new player signings at the Eagles........... I reckon we must have recruited half a team over Summer

"The Club is delighted to announce the signings of Cooper Gaffney, Seb Kerrish, Dane McFarlane and Rory Lehmann.

Cooper debuted and played nine games for the Eagles in 2019 mainly through half back but has the ability to play in the midfield. Cooper returns to the Club after spending 2020 playing alongside his brothers at his local club Port District.

21-year-old Seb Kerrish joins us from the Glenelg Football Club. Seb debuted in Glenelg’s 2019 Premiership season but wasn’t able to break into the side in 2020. Standing at 186cm Seb has a classy left foot kick and has the ability to play through half back and the wing.

Rory Lehmann a key defender has relocated to Adelaide from Melbourne for work. Rory has played alongside ex-Eagle Andrew Ainger at Vermont in the Eastern Football League for the previous three seasons. Prior to that Rory spent two seasons at Coburg in the VFL.

Dane McFarlane joins us from Werribee in the VFL. Dane is a fast running mid/half back who is currently playing up Darwin in the NTFL but will relocate at the conclusion of the summer season to join his good friend James Tsitas in South Australia.

On their signings Luke Powell said, “It is great to have Cooper and his family back at the Club. Cooper is still a very young man and hopefully has a lot of good League football ahead of him here at the Eagles. Seb has some good mates here at the Club already and we hope he can enjoy his football and take the next step as a player. Rory comes highly recommended from Andrew Ainger both as a person and a player and we look forward to having Rory here at the Club. Dane has shown he is a more than a capable player at Weribbee in the VFL and we feel Dane will help fill a void left by the recent departures of Lachy McNeil and Jacob Wehr to the AFL system.”


Good luck with Kerrish.

He was invited by Richmond (along with three other players) to train with them over summer as a possible pre-season supplementary selection. They have two spots available on their list. From what I read they are ranking Mansell as #2. So whether Mansell is selected will likely come down to how many selections Richmond decide to make.

If he is not selected I have no idea whether he plans to return to Adelaide and the Eagles.

He's the one from that list (as much as you can tell from a few printed words) that seems to have the best pedigree and could be most effective.

Sheedy did a good job with a lot of unknowns in 2020 to put together a Premiership team. Time will tell.

And he decides very quickly if someone isn't up to it.
Case in point - Nick Moore.
Played Round 1 in the League then had a solid year in the seconds.

I completely forgot about him.

Tbh he has always felt like the type of player who seems to go ok in the reserves but just can't quite crack it consistently at league level. There's a few others I'd also put into that basket - Haylock, Sharrad, Lee, West for example. I would have also added Westbrook, Weidemann and Carcuro to that list but they have already moved on. With the massive amount of off-season signings I wouldn't be surprised if some or all of the former group don't seek opportunities at another club because they aren't going to get a game with us in 2021.

Really disappointing to see Izzy go to Willaston .Although he didnt play last season thought he wouldve been really handy for us.Compared to the other clubs we are significantly behind them with recruiting and are going to find it tough to be remotely competitive .

He chased the Eagles. Has friends at the Eagles, would have been given no promises and told to chance his luck.
