A game against freo means absolutely nothing for next year. Earlier break, yeah. Wohoo the next game he plays will be in 7-8 months. Better be prepared...I reckon it's just the club focusing on next year by getting a game into Drew and also setting him up for some time off without SANFL finals in the way.
I reckon it just exposes how little the club rates the SANFL.
P.S.: Tobin Cox may still qualify.SANFL Finals Squad
AFL Players (18)
I actually know Darren Beer (our old reserves coach and assistant coach) said when the 17 player cap was rolled out he claimed the coaching staff were over the moon, it meant they could play a much more balanced side. How ever this was in 2017 and our SANFL list was awesome and he even said "the SANFL aren't the brightest, half of our SANFL list are better than our AFL list"You know, you have a conversation with Davies, and you have a conversation with Thomas, over the years, about the sanfl rules, and both will say or hint or express that the rules are not great … but publicly they endorse them. What timidness lives in our club.
On the sanfl webstie Drew is listed in the qualified. That's great. I hope it is not an sanfl error.Now with Drew not qualified, it could be this for finals.
Possible finals side?
F: Hayes - Frampton - Cox
HF: Farrell - Marshall - Woodcock
C: Pudney - Atley - Mayes
HB: Frederick - Lienert - Elsworthy
B: Corcoran - McKenzie - Garner
R: Ladhams - Trengove - Sutcliffe
INT: Hewett - Davidson - Appleton
EMERG: Johnson - Grundy
Have the SANFL actually made an exception for Tobin Cox? He didn't manage to fulfill the requirements for games in August.
And after his bunch of goals against Centrals, it wouldn't surprise me to see themnot giving him an exemption.
