No one will be spared and we hope you all take the stories (some might be stretched slightly!!) as some fun while also promoting all involved at our great club. Throughout the season I will make comment on the happenings and influential people of the NAFC.

In last week’s win against West Adelaide @ City Mazda Stadium, our oldest listed player Leigh Ryswyk turned the clock back to take one of the marks of the year in the last quarter. The Roosters had moved the ball well from half back and the ball ended up in the safe hands of Lewis Hender at half forward. Lewis rolled onto his trusty left boot and weighted the ball perfectly over the top of the West Adelaide player for ‘Rizza’ to take a ride and hold onto the impressive mark. The mark is a worthy contender to be added to the high fliers bar in the function room with the other great marks by past Roosters.
Recently on the front page of the Advertiser, North Adelaide’s very own Jason Rivett featured as the face of the “Welcome to Australian Rules Football” multicultural program. Jason couldn’t pass up the opportunity when asked by the photographer if he was a player for the Roosters. Jase replied ‘YES’ and as they say, the rest is history and in print on the front page of the daily paper. Jason recently asked Jacob Surjan what position he looked like playing in the reserves and Surj replied on the spot ‘left right out’. Jase, some quick advice mate, you probably have to train first before getting a gig with the inform Reserves Roosters!
Kahlin Santillo has recently helped out the Reserves side, suiting up in the fluoros as the team runner. Kahlin, who is progressing very well with his rehabilitation for his ACL injury, is getting the kilometres back into his legs to work on getting his fitness back up to speed. At half time, Kahlin had cooled down and was getting cold, so he rugged up in readiness for Coach Surjan to run him around for the 2nd half. Team Manager Tim Goodwin was quick on his feet to snap a photo of Kahlin. We all think he looks a lot better wearing a North Adelaide Guernsey than the fluoro kit.
The Roosters have a new addition to the change rooms thanks to 1991 Premiership player Steven ‘Bomber’ Hamilton. Bomber has donated a retro style bluetooth music player in Roosters colours known as the Bumpboxx. The players have been using the Bumpboxx at every training session and especially on game day to get themselves ready for the matches. Bomber donated the Bumpboxx in round 2 and it has been pumped up very loud after every 2018 win. Bomber is taking credit for our winning ways this season, telling me recently that the Bumpboxx has a 9-1 win/loss record.
Last Sunday our annual gala auction was held at the Wine Centre in the city. On the day, the best dressed male was selected, with the top 5 being invited onto the stage and then they were asked to strut their stuff, catwalk style for the crowd to judge. The top 5 were all players – Frazer Driscoll, Robbie Young, Dakota Nixon, Mitch Harvey and Alex Spina. In the end, Frazer Driscoll was eventually crowned the best dressed for 2018 with his maroon scarf getting him over the line (personally I think Robbie Young was unlucky)
Other honorable mentions as selected by a not to be revealed committee were;
Lewis Hender, Mitch Clisby, Pat Hodby and our skipper Max Thring.
It was another cracking day which was enjoyed by all in attendance (some enjoyed it more than others!)
