It looks like none of the Subi guys like Sokol, Borchet, Braut, Deluca, Delahunty and co got picked up in the rookie draft this morning...bad for them, good for us....there's still the supplementary and midseason drafts to come but at this point we look like gaining Deluca back and not losing anyone.

Thats tough on Sok, I thought he was a very good chance, a lot of talk about him getting picked up, lets hope he can get himself up and about for another stellar season and keep his name in front of the recruiters. If we get Deluca back that will be huge, in the best 5 mids in the comp and having done half a season and the start of the pre-season with Carrrl'n he should be fit enough to survive Subi's pre-season training. ;-)

Deluca would have been leading the Sandover when he packed up and went to Carlton. He received 12 votes in the only 6 games he played...if he brings that sort of form back to Subi next year then it will be a big bonus for us.

It will take a while for the rule changes to have an impact. Next year, at least, Subi are an absolute lock for the flag and unlikely to lose more than 3 games at worst.

I'm not sure I agree with you Ted but I guess time will tell. There's still a fair bit of upside within the group with a few of last year's premiership colts side starting to come through...the Hickmott's, Xavier Peacock, Nick Martin, Nathan French to name a few will only get better...Jack Mayo would have been handy but reckon he's destined for bigger things in the not too distant future.

You said yourself, BC, you have lost no-one of note and look like getting De Luca back. After your solitary loss this year, you went on to win 14 games at a percentage of 209. You were 4 games and 50% clear of your closest rival. That is the sort of gulf that can't possibly be bridged in the course of just one season. Even losing 3 games would be a backward step for Subi.

A nice article on the Subi website.

On Friday 22 November, Subiaco players Justin Joyce and Angus Litherland presented a cheque on behalf of the playing group to Kristy Ninyette, partner of the late Shane Yarran. Funds were raised throughout the year at multiple player events and football trips.

“Gus put a great idea together about giving a portion of our fundraising to Yaz’s young family” said Justin Joyce. “At the end of the season we then put the word out to the players that we were raising some money for Yaz and anyone who wanted donate, it would be greatly appreciated. Whether it was $5, $50, or $100, we knew that it would go a long way in helping Kristy and their two beautiful children”.

The playing group were able to gift over $2,200 to Kristy and her family. Kristy could not express how much the generous offer meant to her, which all the boys are proud of. “A heartfelt thanks for the generosity of the SFC Players kind gesture of contributing monetary donation to myself, Scarlett & Shane Junior. There are no words to describe my appreciation, Yaz would be so proud of the club and the Playing group! He truly adored SFC and considered the club family, the club continue to exceed my expectations with their love and support” Ninyette said.

Justin Joyce discussed the Subiaco Football Club’s culture, “Any person that walks through the doors, whether that be player, trainer, admin are always a part of the footy club. Being there for each other is a very powerful thing, as you gain enormous levels of respect and trust off the field which usually translates well on the field. Joyce added that “it makes you proud to be at a Club where there is so much care for everyone at the Club”.

Justin Joyce has fond memories of Shane Yarran and his time at the Subiaco Football Club.
“Yaz was certainly one of a kind, I think his smile and kind nature was infectious for anyone that was around him. My fondest memory was first meeting him when he was playing for Peel in the reserves. We ended up beating them by about 100 points, but I think he kicked all their goals and took the biggest hang I’ve seen. The next week Schoey somehow got him playing for us in the last week of the season and he dominated for us, kicking about five goals. Then the first day of pre-season there he was, hanging on the wall with his big grin and I couldn’t believe it.”

“Yaz will never be forgotten for his freakish abilities on the field, but I think more for his personality off the field and love for his family” said Joyce.

Great story, BC.

There's that word again - culture.

Makes you proud to be a life-long supporter. :)

Yep agree Jack. Also when you consider Horsley wears Yaz's number 28 jumper out of respect it just goes to show how much he impacted the club in just a couple of years...what a shame.
