Checkside Chats – Episode 4

The latest episode of Checkside Chats has been released, featuring an interview with Torrens University SA U18 captain Adam D’Aloia.

The Croweaters’ skipper reviews SA’s Game 1 win against the Allies and previews Sunday’s clash with Victoria Country while detailing how he is finding his role as team leader.

Revealing he has a background in Surf Lifesaving, the strong-bodied midfielder told SANFL Media’s Zac Milbank that he is an avid Carlton supporter, enjoying the likes of Patrick Cripps and Sam Walsh working through the centre square.

Studying Economics at Adelaide University, the 18-year-old has been modelling his game on AFL stars such as St Kilda’s Jack Steele.

SANFL Female Talent Manager Robbie Neill returns to provide an in-depth analysis of the South Australian girls set to be snapped up in next Wednesday’s AFLW Draft.

With Hannah Ewings poised to be the first Croweater taken at No.3 by Port Adelaide, Neill reveals who he thinks the Power may select with their second choice at No.7.

He also details some of the other talented SA U18 Championship winning players likely to be left on the board when the Crows pick first at No.43.

Could South Adelaide’s Jess Waterhouse follow in her uncle Clive’s footsteps by landing at Alberton?
