SEABL 2018

Its that time of year when teams start putting their squads together.

With another new team it will be interesting to see if they can attract players from the benches of other seabl teams.

A number of teams have already signed imports (seems rather early to me) including Ballarat, Hobart and Diamond Valley.

Kilsyth look like they are putting together a decent team. I am hearing that Adnam will be back which make them a real contender.

I assume that mt gambier will have all of their usual suspects back and fill with a couple of imports to again be near the pointy end.

Would be great to hear of rumored signings and possible player movements.

re: SEABL 2018

Hobart have signed Tre Nichols from the SBL. IMO along with Daniel Alexander he's been the best import not in the NBL the past few years. Anthony Stewarthas also flagged their interest in Jacob Holman from Goldfied. Also hearing rumours he's chasing some guys from Adelaide.

Kilsyth certainly very active early. The clubs you've mentioned, do you have names of the imports they have signed?

Albury have just announced Lamar Mallory as their first import signing. Played with them back in 2014.

Also signed Daniel Sepokas from NW Tassie.

re: SEABL 2018

I think that Ballarat have re-signed the same imports as season 2017.

i would be surprised if mt gambier loose any of the locals (excluding sutton who has retired).

dandenong have already lost one from them deep bench at the end of the year. would expect them to lose couple more who are seeking more court time.

nunawading i expect will be very similar again in 2018. you would think conn's output would have to slow down he certainly isnt getting younger. even if he gets the offensive numbers he will be exposed more and more on the defensive end.

Conn's age shouldn't be a huge factor the dude hasn't moved quick for the last 6 years and his numbers have pretty much stayed the same and they work around him on D.

A bigger Drop for Conn might come when MacDonald starts to slow down as he is 33 come mid season so you'd expect him to start slowing down soon even thou he is always in great shape you can't beat father time.

Nunawading will be there or there about's again thou as the above mentioned two are still class at SEABL level.

without kendle (too good for seabl really) and johnson and to a far lesser extent white they were average. Their core group is average.

kendle immediately makes them contenders although he will need support, not sure about new import but if is good and they can have someone fill whites spot to that level they will contend again and would do so with a 12 year old coaching them.

"But he did say while they could not offer the financial contracts of other teams, the incentive of personal development saw Moller head south for this season.
"It is becoming easier to sell the product," Stewart said.
“We've got the best crowds in the league, we’ve got the best venue and we are pushing towards an NBL team in the future.”

re: SEABL 2018

Deng a huge signing, fits well with the pioneers squad. will be a tough cover for other seabl teams.

no surprise with daly returning but is certainly quality. all seabl team last year.

pioneers obviously will be contenders again.

no imports signed yet, think earlier reports that hill not returning. so im guessing at least one import still to come

Heard Hill won't be back so you'd expect an import swingman.

Deng is a solid pick up looking forward to him developing and Daly is the best Aussie PG in SEABL now taking the mantle from Macdonald (No slight on Shane just he is getting older and Daly has improved)

all aussie squad. good flexibility then to have ability to add import later if things aren't working out or if there are injuries. Of course all depending on the $.

re: SEABL 2018

To assume that the Pioneers success is based on spending is very misguided. The key players in 5 championship runs have been constants. Daly Hill Burdon and Sutton are South Australian and now have very permanent connections with the Mount.
Heaven forbid they may just like playing the game in a great environment with good team mates not to mention winning.
These four have been supplemented with one or two good imports each of the last five seasons. Luke Jamieson came from Canberra where he played modestly. Majok Deng is another SA player and my understanding is that the Pioneers will be all ozzy. BTW Mount Gambier is probably the only semi pro team that receives no funds from a local junior program. Believe what you want but they certainly are not big spenders.

re: SEABL 2018

What I don't understand is how SEABL don't insist on Mt Gambier having a women's team. They have a massive advantage because they only have to fund one program. You take away the women's team from nearly every other team in the league and they would probably play in five straight grand finals too. New teams entering the league are told they have to have both a men's and women's program but Mt Gambier are allowed to continue putting all their money into just a men's team. Makes no sense to me.

re: SEABL 2018

Not withstanding the Mt Gambier population is around 28,000 - significantly the smallest of all SEABL Clubs. Albury 50,000. Town's that make up NW Tasmania around 50,000. Bendigo/Ballarat 100,000 each. I would make a general comment that the size of the Mt Gambier economy is less per capita than all of the above centres.

re: SEABL 2018

Who cares what a team spends its not like there is a salary cap.

Good luck to them if they have money but Mount do recruit smartly targeting SA born and bred players who want a better level of comp than the CABL which isn't very competitive.

If the players stay long term and start families etc in the area it is great for all involved long term as those guys rarely leave and they don't have a local rival who will be attempting to recruit those guys unlike teams in the Melb Metro area so it certain keeps a lid on what they'd need to pay guys anyway.
