Press Releases

Press Release 9th September 2012

The Swansea Breakers have asked for comment from Head Coach Ringo his comments on the Team that has been drafted for the first season of competition.

Ringo states that despite the vagaries of the Draft he is extremely happy with the team that has been drafted and is confident of a bold showing in the premiership.  Ringo said the club strategy was to draft a team with a mix of experience and youth and he believes this has been achieved with an average age of just 24 and only 2 Players Goodes and O'Keeffe over the age of 30.

Ringo said the one disappointment that having initial pick 16 in the draft we were unable to draft a real standout player and hence why the club is appointing a possible rotating Captain from the leadership group with Adam Goodes as Club Captain.

Asked if he will be active in the trade period Ringo said that if the right offers came along for any player it would be considered especially if it involves a gun top 20 player.  Asked what he would like from the draft if opportunities were presented Ringo gave this summary of the draft and requirements:

Backs: Good Blend of Youth and experience but may be able to release one or 2 for right offers.
Mids: Another good mix but obviously lacking the gun Rich, Jack or Sidey not quite there yet so if an opportunity came along to acquire a swan etc would be looked at but not at the expense of future strategy by giving too much away. May be able to release some here for right offers.
Rucks: Very solid here but seeking a backup either by trade or Draft to Nat and Jamar.
Forwards: Whilst a good mix line is solid but not spectacular.  Any offers that strengthen this line will be considered.

Ringo said whilst we will not be actively seeking trades we will listen to any offers.  Forward any offers direct to head coach Ringo by PM.

Press Release 6th December 2012

The Swansea Breakers are pleased to announce that after an extensive search they have appointed nrich102 as an assistant coach to Ringo.

nrich102 will assist Ringo in providing valuable input into drafting, trading and weekly team selections.  Ringo staes he is looking forward to working with nrich102 in developing the Breakers into a league powerhouse.

This appointment will ease the pressure on Ringo who has been operating as a sole coach for the past few months.

Join us in making nrich102 welcome to the club.

Press Release 10th December 2012

We are appointing a very new coach to the role of List and recruitment Manager.  Mr Micah only joined the coaching in November and we look forward to giving Mr Micah an opportunity to develop the list at the Breakers.

Mr Micah will work with head coach Ringo and assistant coach nrich102 in our list management by advising on trades, draft recruitment, and weekly team selections.

Join me in welcoming Mr Micah to the Breakers.

Press Release 3rd March 2013

There has been a reshuffle of coaching duties at the Club.  With Ringo heavily involved in the organising of the British Competition the Board has unanimously decided to promote nrich102 to the position of co-coach.
nrich102 has brought new and enthusiastic ideas to the club in his short tenure and the appointment can only see the club progress further.

Join me in congratulating nrich102.

This coaching team will serve the Breakers well with a blend of experience and youthful exuberance which will serve the Breakers well now and into the future.

Meet the Rookies

National Draft

Pick 33 - Nathan Wright - Defender/Midfielder who excels at stoppages. He is a strong overhead mark and takes a clean possession as well.
Pick 36 - James Stewart - Forward who has a good game sense and natural pace. He can play at either end of the ground. He is the son of former Collingwood player Craig Stewart.
Pick 39 - Brant Colledge - Defender/Forward who can play on a tall player in defence or be the lead up forward in attack. Is equally as good at either end of the ground.
Pick 40 - Clay Cameron - Forward who is a zone selection. He is very quick and can play at either end of the ground. He is a strong overhead mark as well.

Preseason/Rookie Draft

Pick 4 Matthew Taberner
Played senior footy for Myrtleford in the Ovens and Murray League this year before being invited back to Murray Bushrangers for the last four games to play as a 19-year-old. In those four games he kicked nine goals, including two bags of four. He averaged three contested marks, including seven in one game against the Dandenong Stingrays.

Pick 20 Rhys O'Keefe (compensation pick Simon Buckley)
O'Keeffe had more continuity in 2011, his third season, playing the full season for the Bullants. He was elevated to Carlton's senior list in place of the injured Andrew Collins prior to Round 14, and made his first AFL appearance that same week, his only for the 2011 season. He missed the first half of the 2012 season with a foot injury, and played a further two AFL matches. He was retained on Carlton's rookie list for 2013.

Pick 23 Danny Butcher (compensation pick Josh Drummond)
Butcher, recruited from Gippsland Power with pick 21 in the 2012 rookie draft, is the younger brother of John, now teammates at Port Adelaide. He won Gippslandís best and fairest last season and finished second in the B&F count in the TAC Cup. A different player from his high-leaping and powerful marking brother, Butcher is an inside-midfielder who is tough and competes hard for the contested ball.

Pick 39 Xavier Richards
Played in the TAC Cup this season as a 19-year-old after making the Vic Metro side in 2011. Younger brother of Swans premiership player Ted.

Pick 46 Cadeyn Williams (compensation pick Thomas Swift)
Was in brilliant form with the Bushrangers in the early stages of the 2012 TAC Cup season, before a shoulder injury brought a premature end to his football year. Has strong endurance and excellent lateral movement in traffic. His awareness and vision with his hands in traffic is a real strength.

Pick 70 Justin Clarke (compensation pick Matt Campbell)
Justin Clarke is a tall and quick rebounding defender with terrific speed for his size (2.97sec for 20m at the State Draft Combine in Adelaide) and a long, penetrating kick. He is a star in Country South Australia who also played with North Adelaide in the SANFL.

Last Minute Magic from Swan Steals the Game from Blue

A last minute goal from 75 to Dane Swan has given the Inter Club match to Red.
Red seemed in trouble at first, with ruckman Max Gawn pulling out with a hamstring injury he got earlier in the day during training, calling up Rory Thompson, with the occasional hit Aaron Cornelius, to do the rucking. Yet Eddie Betts went crazy, kicking 3 goals and 4 behinds. But Blue wouldn't go without there, share of goals, with Matthew De Boer kicking 3 goals 4 behinds.

Red 8.6.54
Blue 7.9.51

Red Betts 3, Jetta 2, Cornelius, Sidebottom, Swan
Blue de Boer 3, Rich 2, J Kennedy, McGrath

Match Up's
Docherty played on McGrath, Patfull played on de Boer, Talia played on Cornelius when he was playing forward.

Best(no particular order)
Swan, Betts, de Boer, Rich, Moloney, Docherty, Cooney, Talia, Golby

Other stuff
Maguire played half of the game. Goldsack and C. Brown switched between forward and back.

The Swansea Breakers first official match has ended in defeat. A small crowd gathered at Trent Bridge to witness the game, as the coachless Nottingham Hoods defeated the Swansea Breakers. Hoods Captain Gary Ablett Jnr. was voted best on ground, followed by Scott Pendlebury, then finally, Dane Swan.

Swansea Breakers coach, nrich102, said that it was a good learning experience for the boys, as they aim for the premiership.

Nottingham Hoods 27.14.176 defeated Swansea Breakers 23.15.153

Aaron Cornelius has been dropped from the Swansea Breakers for round 2. Aaron scored went spud last round, scoring only 51, as Swansea was defeated by Nottingham. Jeff Garlett will make his debut for the side, as a replacement for Cornelius. Joel Patful has also been omitted to make way for Dylan Grimes, as he comes back from injury.

On the bright side for the Swansea Breakers, Leigh Montagna will make his return, after serving a one match ban he got from the pre season friendly game against Manchester. Troy Chaplin will also be playing, after getting a concussion last weekend.
