After finishing second on the ladder after the minor round last season, the Eagles were set for a huge finals series, but a straight sets exit is all they achieved.

 

Losing four Adelaide Crows listed players to their new SANFL squad and three other players that have been drafted to interstate AFL clubs will make it even more difficult for the Eagles to bounce back.

 

The recruitment of experienced South Adelaide forward, Michael Wundke and Central Districts premiership player, James Boyd, will help cover the loss of the large number of players that have moved or left the club.

 

Wundke will provide a major boost up forward after kicking 180 goals in the last three seasons, which resulted in leading the leagues goal kicking in 2011 and 2013.

Michael Godden will coach the team for a fifth successive season in the new ten-team SANFL competition.

In: Michael Wundke (South Adelaide), James Boyd (Central District), Jacob Templeton (Central District), Lachlan McGregor (Glenelg/Langhorne Creek).
