South Australia’s most talented teenagers are embracing the Gather Round spotlight as selectors release a 34-player Torrens University SA U18 squad to contest the 2023 AFL National Championships in June.

The Torrens University SANFL U18 and U16 competitions will be the only ones in action throughout metropolitan Adelaide this weekend as the AFL’s Gather Round engulfs Adelaide with excitement.

Matches between North Adelaide and Sturt at Prospect (Richmond) and Woodville-West Torrens and Norwood (West Coast) at Maughan Thiem Kia Oval will be played after the AFL clinics and player appearances, with AFL club scouts likely to be spread across all matches.

Featuring four AFL Academy members and two Hostplus SANFL League rookies, the Croweaters will play four matches in four weeks with two at Thebarton Oval and two interstate.

Eagles boys in the squad are: Patrick Weckert, Callum Fairall, Patrick Toole, Tom Luck, Tyler Welsh, Rome Burgoyne, and Kade Herbert.

We wish our boys all the best.
