Surprised its taken so long, had some decent stats last year.


With some luck he’ll hopefully follow in Joe Sinor’s footsteps, who took a few years to make the grade. McLeod looked comfortable out there and played well. He certainly has some class and looks fit and confident.

I thought Goldsworthy and Hardie were important when the Eagles needed to get going in that 2nd quarter. Dan Menzel, with 6, again a star performance. Knight, Clarke etc worked hard through the midfield. Beecken getting back to his best form. Litster, Duval and Lehmann had much better games in the back line this week. Ellis-Yolmen will be very handy. Much better structured with another tall to help Redden. Fingers crossed Troy Menzel is ok, but his knee didn’t look good.

Good win by the Eagles. It’s a funny season - after some upsets in other games today, we get a chance to keep in touch with the top 3 if we can beat Glenelg next week, even if we find ourselves outside the 5 after tomorrow’s game.


At presentations last night coach Sheedy was very effusive in his talk about Connor and his journey with the club and his resilience to keep aiming for an opportunity to play league. Sheedy also mentioned that Connor had played 72 reserves games, backing up "Aerie's" thoughts he could be another Joe Sinor.


Angus Poole another who plied his trade at Reserves level before becoming an outstanding league footballer and having a huge impact on the Eagles, as Sinor has. I admire the dedication of all the SANFL footballers, but the old fashioned route of serving an apprenticeship in the Reserves and building on your fitness and skills while growing into your body, before finally making the grade, serves as a great example to all those coming through the system and is a key part to what makes a club stronger.

Couldn't go to the game but I watched the SANFL Today coverage. Both commentators, Sam Tugwell and Tim Saul, were excellent - knowledgeable, good natured and serious about the game. Well done!

He could have been wrong because he was watching the electronic scoreboard. When it is working its mostly wrong. The snail pace of the old manual scoreboard beats electrons.

And if PA are thinking of playing Lycett in AFL, Eagles might be in danger of losing Redden back to them
