Pre-season update

Training recommenced on Monday January 6, and 95 players have attended pre-season thus far.

Under Premiership coach Tom Wigley, training has been on Mondays and Thursdays at Rostrevor College, and  despite some very hot conditions, .the numbers have been around the 50 mark on most nights. The squad has set itself high standards, with the leadership group of Will O'Malley (capt), Chris Pahl (v/c), Kieran Holland, Craig Holm and Brendan Littler setting the example.
Missing this season from the 2013 Div 1 Premiership team, will be Sam Bridge (retired) and Drew Litster (Kilburn).

Former  players back out training regularly have included Luke Allen (Norwood 18's), Mick Aloisi (Mt.Lofty), Michael Cotton (UTS Bats), Anthony Medhurst (overseas), Glen Norris (overseas), new Reserves playing coach Damien Polkinghorne (Central Yorke), Josh Robinson (work), and Luke Sheridan (overseas).

After lengthy lay-offs with injury, Sam Bowler, Dan Gilbert, Steve McKenna, Chris Pahl, and Nadim Shadiac are amongst the players working hard at rehabilitation. 

Recent Old Scholars out for the first time have included Tony Barbaro, Michael Boffa, Kieran Noell, Nathan Surman, Jarrod Varley, Oliver Wilkie and Jordan Zoia.

Ross Christie and Heath Commane (Barossa Districts), and Angus Kerr (Point Cook), have also  joined the club.
