Ronald Hateley - 2019 Inductee

These days a bag of eight is a rarity even for a key forward. Well, Ron Hateley once did it from the wing!

Hateley was a tall, thinly built wingman Tantanoola and made his senior SANFL debut in 1973. He was a key player for the Panthers during the Haydn Bunton Jr era, winning a club best and fairest award in 1976, and earning state selection four times.

He agonisingly missed the 1979 Grand Final after breaking his leg during the Qualifying Final clash with Port Adelaide earlier in the finals series.

After recovering from his broken leg Hateley put in a full season in 1980 and continued to produce reliable football for the Panthers until his retirement, with 216 senior games to his credit, at the end of the 1984 season.

The man affectionately known as 'Snake' after apparently being bitten by one at a training camp.
