SA named its State squad for the Australian Nationals, with the two top sides South Adelaide and Eels dominating with 15 of the 20 players.
South Adelaide have signed yet another player coming back from the UK, with former tiger Dave O'Connell set to play for the second half of the season, to add more power to the Bulldogs pack that already has Goldsmith, Brombley, Murray, Unger and Ramsden.
Roosters have been the brides maids of the SARL for the past 4 seasons finising 3rd behind Souths and the Eels, and this year looked to be the main threat to the big 2 untill they were thumped by the Bulldogs 2 weeks ago at hindmarsh stadium, suffering a couple of injurys and then last week put up a gallent show to go into half time as leaders against the Eels, but the injury bug hit again and the Eels ran away with the game.
