Star Signing

Delisted by the Crows at the end of the 2019 season, Jaimi Tabb is returning to SANFLW in 2021 – this time with the all-conquering Roosters. An explosive ball-winner through the middle of the ground, the 20-year-old can also play across half-back if required. Tipped by several rival captains to win the SANFLW Best and Fairest award, Tabb will certainly help fill the void of North’s departing premiership players.

On the Rise - Powerade Breakthrough Player Candidate

Tall utility Amelie Borg looms as North’s most likely junior elevation to catch the eye in 2021. The athletic 16-year-old from Golden Grove can either play as a tall defender or in the ruck but more importantly, has caught the eye of coach Krissie Steen on the training track. Can she continue North’s dominance of the Powerade Breakthrough Player award by following on from Chloe Scheer and Hannah Ewings as past winners?

Exciting talent Hannah Ewings won last year’s Powerade Breakthrough Player Award and is set to shine again in 2021.

Ones to Watch - Statewide Super SA U19 Squad Members

Hannah Ewings – Classy half-forward who uses the ball efficiently. Loves to elude would-be tacklers while slotting a goal. Last year’s Powerade Breakthrough Player is set to take her game to another level in 2021.

Julia Clark – A regular member of the Roosters unit for the past 2 seasons, playing as a small forward and defender. Has very good pace and is fiercely competitive. Member of the 2020 premiership team.

Kate Case – Hard-running wing who established herself in last year’s undefeated Roosters’ premiership team. Could have even more opportunity to shine this year following the loss of several senior stars to the AFLW.

Jorja Eldridge – Originally from Whyalla, Jorja played basketball before moving to Adelaide this year. Can play as a key position player or pinch hit in the ruck. One to watch this season as she builds on her two games played in 2020.
