Locals pack a punch in Adelaide
Local boxers faced off against
interstate opponents in front of a
sell-out crowd in Adelaide on the
Three Riverland Boxing Club com-
petitors competed at the Workman
Club, Port Adelaide, in front of a full
capacity crowd of approximately 400.
The event was described as "one of
the best nights Boxing SA has seen
for a long time", with five states and
territories featured -- South Australia,
Tasmania, the Northern Territory, New
South Wales and Western Australia.
The first Riverland boxer to front up
was Bradon Dunning in the junior open
60kg contest, up against a quality WA
opponent in Bradley Abraham.
Abraham won the bout unanimously
in his best performance to date, apply-
ing much needed pressure and delivered
quality scoring blows.
The bout was a very skilful match
with the crowd showing their apprecia-
tion of the quality on display.
The second local boxer to enter the
ring was Ryan Goodes in a 64kg elite
open match against strong NSW oppo-
nent Mathew Robinson.
Goodes won the bout unanimously
in an outstanding display of skill and
power. This bout was named 'Bout of
the Night' by the ringside official for its
high standard of skill.
Jack Seabourne then showed his stuff
in the 64kg youth open contest against
a very skilful NSW opponent, Josh
McKay, who represented Australia at
the world junior championships two

"I am very pleased with the progres-

the commitment to a very solid and
intensive training program leading into
the National Championships," he said.
"The result of the training showed in
the performances on Saturday night."

Colts comp makes a comeback
by Nick Dillon
Independent colts football is
back on track, with six clubs
committing to the new under 14
competition for 2015.
The Independent clubs decided at a
recent meeting to change the age limit
back to under 14s after it was dropped
from under 17s to under 16s last year.
Only Paringa, Brown's Well and
Ramco fielded teams in 2014, with the
Swans the only team remaining at the
end of the season.
The move was made to allow
juniors from Riverland clubs to play
in both competitions without clearance.
Moorook-Kingston will be the only team
not represented at under 14 level, but
RFL president Gary Pfeiler hopes that
"We've spoken to Moorook because
the other clubs still want a game and it's
not fair on them," Mr Pfeiler said. "With
six of the seven teams having colts, it'd
be ideal if the seventh team had at least
"Even if they have to go back to eight-
a-side so their kids can still play footy.
"If they can only get six kids, at least
it's a start and it allows them to build.
If you have a week off, then a bye and
then you play Moorook, it could be three
Mr Pfeiler said despite Moorook-
Kingston's predicted absence from the
competition, the Independent clubs were
heading in the right direction.
"All the clubs were very positive," he
said. "They want their kids to play footy
and they want them to play every week,
so at least we're going forward."
A meeting was held with the South
Australian Community Football League
last night with several country leagues
set to voice their concerns about the
three-year age gap for junior grades.
Previously, juniors as young as six
or seven had played in the Independent
under 17 competition, but a ruling by the
SACFL limited junior grades to a three-
year differential last year.
"There's four other leagues now that
have to do the same as us with the age
group," Mr Pfeiler said. "I think there
will still be a three-year age gap, but kids
will be allowed to play down and up.
month or two over the age limit, he can
apply to the RFL for a permit.
"At the other end of the spectrum the
kids' parents will need to allow their
child to go up..."
