Cross & Crabb run it back in 2018!

Cross & Crabb run it back in 2018!

South Adelaide is ecstatic to reveal that club stalwarts Joel Cross and Brad Crabb have signed on for another season in Noarlunga.

Cross will embark on his eighth campaign with the Panthers after notching 138 games and 82 goals since making his way to Noarlunga in 2011.

Meanwhile, 180-game veteran Crabb will run it back for season number 12 with the senior team.

A model of consistency and tenacious endeavor on the field, Cross enjoyed another standout season in 2017, leading South Adelaide in disposals with 24.4 per game.

At season's end, he finished as runner-up for the Knuckey Cup (an award he has never polled worse than second for) and was named in his fifth SANFL Advertiser Team of the Year.

Since joining the Panthers from Scoresby in Victoria, Cross has put together an impressive resume of accolades, including three Knuckey Cup and being judged as the best player in the competition by both the umpires and coaches on two occasions.

Recruited from South Adelaide's country zone on Kangaroo Island, Crabb journeyed right through the club's Development Squads and Junior Programs before making his League debut in 2007.

The tall defender soon established himself in the senior team, winning the 2008 Most Improved Player Award. A respected leader and teammate amongst the playing group, Crabb has also been honoured with the Knuckles Award (2010 & 2016) and Best Clubman Award (2013).

In 2015 he took on the captaincy and enjoyed his best season to date, finishing equal third in Knuckey Cup voting and earning selection in the SANFL Advertiser Team of the Year at full back.

We look forward to watching Crossy and Crabby go around again in 2018 as they edge closer to 150/200 brilliant games respectively.
