Rose to bloom as a Panther

South Adelaide are excited to welcome James Rose for the 2020 season.

The former Sydney Swan lands at the Panthers following 5 seasons in the red and white after making his AFL debut in 2015. 

Taken at pick 37 of the 2014 AFL Draft, Rose went on to play 14 AFL games after playing at Sturt as a junior. 

The smooth mover kicked 22 goals from 13 NEAFL matches in 2018 and was at his best in the 2018 NEAFL Grand Final collecting 38 disposals and a goal. 

"We're really excited to welcome James to the club, he'll be a great addition to the team" said Senior Coach Jarrad Wright

"As a player James will add some top end class to our midfield, he has elite speed and decision making and knows where the goals are."

"He will complement our already tough working midfield nicely"

"As a person his core values fit in with what are building here at South, and James will be a very good fit." 

When speaking on making the move to the Panthers, Rose felt that South Adelaide was the right fit. 

"I came back to Adelaide with an open mind, and after meeting with Jarrad and Neill I sparked a connection with Boof quite quickly as our values aligned"

"I'm bloody excited to contribute and looking at the list there are some fantastic leaders in Cross and Rose."

"The list is maturing at the right time and it's shaping up to be an exciting year, and I'm really keen to contribute."

We welcome James to South Adelaide and are excited to see him in action in 2020.
