Was just looking at the Southport Sharks hall of fame.


Feel a bit offended that Jesse White is a Southport hall of Fame inductee after I had played for Southport against Jesse at Surfers Paradise all through junior AFL.

Seems like he played 1 year at Southport.

kreglze what you think about this.

Nup....he played for Glenelg after AFL..........he was drafted from Southport by the Swans.


White played his junior football at the Surfers Paradise Australian Football Club on the Gold Coast. He was selected to represent Queensland in 2004 at under 16 level, while playing for Surfers Paradise. He switched to the Southport Australian Football Club to play both under 18 and senior football. Despite having a good year for Southport and the under 18 Queensland team, he was overlooked in the 2005 AFL draft. He remained at Southport for the 2006 season, winning the QAFL premiership and was a standout performer in Queensland's victorious run at the 2006 AFL Under 18 Championships.


White was drafted by the Sydney Swans with pick 79 in the 2006 AFL draft.

Yeah, I read that on wiki. Quite a strange thing to put him in the hall of fame. Surely they could have found someone else.

Two years (2005-06). Nick Riewoldt also only played two years at Southport (1999-2000) after switching over from Broadbeach and he is in the Sharks' Hall of Fame. Riewoldt also has an entire function room named after him at the Sharks (The Riewoldt Room) as well as a foyer (Riewoldt Foyer) but no one seems bat an eye at that. Maybe it's just because Nick has a higher profile than Jesse? Both Riewoldt and White played in senior QAFL premierships for Southport so you can't make that argument.

If anyone is undeserving of their place in Southport's Hall of Fame then it's 2019 inductee Daniel Merrett. He was a latecomer to football when he played half a season with Surfers Paradise in 2001 and played just one season with Southport in 2002 before the Brisbane Lions drafted him. The Sharks did not win the QAFL premiership that year either.

Obviously Southport are just inducting as many former AFL players as they can into their Hall of Fame to add some prestige. However, the induction that would trump everyone else would be Lachie Weller considering he played just one game for the Sharks. That would be a power move 😂
