Re: RIP LEE VIRGIN

RIP good buddy.
Was there through the hard times, with a good to all demeanour !
Condolences to the Virgin family.
All Rooster supporters are forever in your debt, but Lee did everything for the love of his beloved club The Roosters.

Re: ROUND 2 North Adelaide V Norwood, Saturday 4 July, 3:05pm at Adelaide Oval

Re: ROUND 2 North Adelaide V Norwood, Saturday 4 July, 3:05pm at Adelaide Oval

Also, Jake Neade named in the pivot in the reserves, and McKenzie Slee named in a back pocket as well - thought he'd quit the club? Anyway, good to see him back. I think you will find Mackenzie Slee was going to play in the SE competition, but like the Thrings & Billy Laurie nowhere to play so they...

Re: Round 1 North Adelaide V West Adelaide, Sunday 28 June, 12noon at Adelaide Oval.

Can’t wait for this it’s been a holiday in isolation :D Would think Tom Schwarz would be in the 22 of named players. Virtually BOG on 2018 GF Premiership. Need a very good win against Westies to set the pace and confidence in this team. Haven’t heard any difference to 4 on the bench this year and be...

Did we take the 19th man thing a bit too far?
Interesting this no. 19 in so many ways comes and haunts us or can be coincidental !!
Just like this season’s programme for Round 3 where on Sunday the 19th April
@Prospect North vs Eagles
Is this coincidental or tongue in cheek programming ??

Re: Steven Sims

Certainly was a very important cog in North winning the 87 & 91 premierships !
I’am hoping Simsey you will fight this through to cleaner health. In the trench with you buddy !!

Re: All the in's and out's in one thread

Good choices for the leadership team. Max will be hard to replace as captain, but from what I've seen of Alex Spina's on-field efforts he is a worthy replacement. Good to see Tom Schwarz rewarded as well. Certainly great choices and with Andrew Moore’s experience and three years Box Hill Captain an...

Re: Vale Don Gilbourne

Although I didn’t see him play, l had older friends who said Don was one of the great players they saw play for North !
RIP Don Gilbourne !
Wouldn’t mind hearing from others who saw Don play.

Re: Round 1 2020

This will be a beauty, and hopefully with a full squad a team that will thrash them on their home dirt !
Also Friday night suits us there compared to a day game.
I can see “the bird” going up all around if we beat the “legs” @ the Parade, let alone a few at Lewis Johnson !

Re: All the in's and out's in one thread

Of the departures announced recently it was really surprising to see Slee and Laurie leaving. Slee was young, a premiership player and was always selected in the league team when fit. Laurie was easily our best recruit in a year when there was a dearth of recruits. (Why was there so little recruiti...

I think the mid-season draft has been ruled out for next year. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/afl-drops-2020-pre-season-trade-period-proposal-20191014-p530eq.html The mid season draft has not been ruled out.

Re: All the in's and out's in one thread

Well we survived the Draft and Rookie Draft just need to survive the Preseason Draft with Dyson Hilder and Karl Finlay or any other player for that matter. There also could be an invite to do preseason training with any AFL club which they would be hoping to be included in final listing with said cl...
