It's reading stories like this that have me worried about our midfield development.

This kid always has obvious talent. Gets a belated senior run after public outcry, gets dropped, doesn't get another shot, gets cut from our list, and then wins a Magaery medal in the SANFL?

Meanwhile, we put guys on our list like Burrows and England and keep Fraser Mciness around after being on our list for almost a decade?

Partington is still only 22 as well yeah? I can only speculate there must have been more going on behind the scenes because cutting him loose always felt like a bit of a dubious list management decision

Some of you guys are taking the piss with this revisionist history.

Partington was/is an average footballer. Too small, too slow, with rumoured attitude problems and without good enough skills to play league.

There is zero chance he'd get a spot in our side.

I'm happy for the guy, but the SANFL in 2019 is a joke, it's not even 2019 WAFL grade.

2012 - Brad Symes
2013 - Matt Thomas
2014 - Zane Kirkwood
2015 - Joel Cross
2016 - Zane Kirkwood
2017 - Mitch Grigg
2018 - Mitch Grigg
2019 - Luke Partington

Inspiring stuff

Masten dominates when he plays WAFL. I would kind of like to see him win a Sandover for the Beagles after he retires.

Beagle's first Sandover winner, premiership player, whipping boy, 200 game player, goat. What a strangely wonderful career that would be, really it already is.

And iirc Hutchings finished second or thereabouts after getting delisted by St Kilda.

Hell I reckon Pridda could probably win another one, playing managed minutes in his mid thirties.
