Trio of Panthers named in U16 State Squad
Three young Panthers guns have been selected in the 2019 SA Under-16 Squad that will defend their AFL National Championship later this year.
Ball magnets Jason Horne (180cm, 72kg, Christies Beach - SFL; pictured above) and Matthew Roberts (183cm, 74kg, Langhorne Creek - GSFL) will make their second appearance for the SA U16s, after featuring in the victorious side of 2018.
Meanwhile, Arlo Draper (185cm, 68kg, Willunga - GSFL) has also been recognised for his strong U16 campaign with South Adelaide.
A familiar face remains at the helm, with former Panther and 2018 U16 All-Australian mentor Julian Farkas set to guide the Croweaters again in 2019.
The South Australian squad will first face Western Australia on Sunday June 16 at Leederville Oval.
Next they travel to Queensland to play Victoria Metro (Monday July 8) at Southport and Victoria Country (Friday July 12) at the Gabba during the School Holidays.
Training will begin at Thebarton Oval next Tuesday, with four trial matches to be played throughout the period against the U17 Futures State team as well as Sacred Heart, Rostrevor and Prince Alfred Colleges.
