2019 Finals

SANFL Finals Qualification – AFL Listed Players

By ZAC MILBANK

SANFL has finalised the AFL-listed players set to play for Adelaide and Port Adelaide in the 2019 Statewide Super League finals series.

For the first time since Adelaide’s SANFL inception in 2014, the Crows and Power will do battle in the major round with the two fierce foes locking horns in Saturday’s Qualifying Final from 7.05pm.

With both clubs having their AFL teams fail to make the finals, only those who satisfy the qualification criteria have been permitted to line-up in the SANFL.

To be eligible, AFL-listed players must have played more SANFL matches than AFL games across the minor round while also fronting for at least three Statewide Super League appearances after June 30.

Eligible players such as Chayce Jones (Adelaide) and Trent McKenzie (Port) who played AFL in Round 23 will be able to play in the Qualifying Final as their AFL team has not qualified for the major round.

Adelaide has a total of 18 AFL-listed players eligible, including veteran Andy Otten and promising forward Darcy Fogarty.

A tally of 20 AFL-listed players have qualified for Port Adelaide, including key forward Todd Marshall and backman Jarrod Lienert.

SANFL rules permit the Crows and Magpies to have no more than 17 AFL-listed players play in a final, this includes Adelaide captain Matthew Wright.

Development players such as Tom Hutchesson (Adelaide) and Tom Corcoran (Port) must have played at least one Statewide Super League game in the minor round to line-up in a SANFL final.
