A preview on 2023...


Senior Coach: Logan Austin

Anticipation meets the Red Legs in season 2023 with more high end talent joining the football ranks the need for greater output on the field is required. 2022 had it’s highs and lows and if a couple of close games they let slip at home and on the road are flipped they will be much more competitive come seasons end. Coach Logan Austin had the side playing great attacking football at times and with added midfield depth with the likes of Will Mitchell and Xavier Richards the Red Legs will be hoping to see that impact on the scoreboard

Simon Deery is a big loss, despite not playing at his best in 2022 the former League MVP and VFL star will leave a hole in defence, Especially against the other big forwards in the competition. Their forward line has for large parts of the last few years been a strength. With names like Ethan East & Brayden McCarrey floating through there they will be hoping that the added star power will see more ball in there to kick those winning scores.

The club is heavily committed to improving the playing list and getting long term success. With everything moving in the right direction off the field it will be just rewards to get some on field success in the terms of wins and losses. While finals might be a stretch too far, winning more home matches and producing more competitive results on the road against the contenders is surely a key for 2023.


A Grade Coach: Brooke Soulsby

It has been a tough time for the Red Legs in the netball over the past few seasons and season 2023 looks like it may be again. One can not challenge their team spirit and camaraderie however they just are lacking a few experienced players to help out at the top level. It will give their talented juniors another chance to get experience at the top level and who knows what the future might hold if the young stars can stick around.
