Great Flinders Round 5 Preview

Updated: May 22

Another dry week greets Great Flinders football this weekend.

Join us as we preview all the action for Round 5.

United Yeelanna vs Cummins Kapinnie

United Yeelanna

Ins - Clayton Colbert, Bryce Breed

Outs - Jaxon Norton, Matthew Crettenden

Both sides enter this week with plenty of momentum.

Cougars ground out a gritty win against Eyre United whilst the Eagles have been nothing short of dominant in their quest for yet another premiership in 2024.

Whilst the Eagles will be without their spearhead in Matthew Crettenden, they regain another former league leading goalkicker in Bryce Breed.

Cougars playing coach, Thomas Phelps led from the front last week, dominating all over the ground. His young side will be looking for him to play a key role once again up against the experienced Eagles outfit.

Casey Carr and Adam Murnane have been back to their best this season, named in the best players in every game played this season whilst Josh Horgan and Henry Turnbull have been incredibly consistent for the young Cougars side.

The young Cougars side will have their moments but this Eagles juggernaut cannot be tipped against.

Eyre United vs Cummins Ramblers

Eyre United

Ins - Cohen Lawrie, Johnno Telfer

Outs - Joey Lienert, Riley Pugsley


Ins - Wes Bilney, Henry Treloar, Justin Long, Saxon Rogers, Brad Dare

Outs - Bryce Cant, Phoenix Milburn, George Pedler, Ned Schubert, Cody Modra

Both of these sides are coming off disappointing losses last weekend.

The first half by both teams were extremely costly so expect them to come out firing early this week.

Ramblers are the walking wounded at the moment with up to 17 players missing from their senior sides. Rumour has it if one more player pulled out, Rambler coach Jules Wait was going to bring along his boots.

Eyre United are showing steady improvement and have been finishing off games extremely well for such a young side.

Harlee Chandler had his quietest game since entering the league and will out to make amends this weekend.

Jimmy Richo could be the key in this game, with Wes Bilney back in the side it will allow him to move freely up and down the ground as he did against Tumby Bay several weeks ago.

This one could turn out to be closer than what a lot of people are expecting. If the Saints are within striking distance at 3 quarter time anything is possible.

Tipping Ramblers 2-3 goals.

Elliston Districts vs Lock

Elliston Districts

Ins - Brody Kenny, Harry Quigley, Shannon Horgan, Darren Gregory

Outs - Tom Lee, Cruz Polkinghorne, Dale Shipard, Waylon Drew


Ins - Jaidyn Beard, Andrew Heath, Tait Hetzel

Outs - Sam Pearce, Fletcher Kammermann, Levi Brown

With both sides missing some keys and some tractor legs hitting, both sides will be glad this game is played at Elliston rather than the big Lock oval.

Elliston Districts had a hard fought battle against Tumby Bay last weekend, never allowing them to kick away at any stage.

The Roos have stamped themselves as a genuine contender so far this season, extremely fit and well structured over the entirety of the ground.

In the absence of Kory Beard last weekend, Locks forward 50 proved to be just at potent led by cousin Travis Beard who finished with 7.

The midfield battle will likely determine the outcome of the match with Kelsh, Guerin, Rosalia and Williams likely up against Slape, George, Morton and Glover.

This should be a close first half but the Roos have been outstanding so far this season and despite having a poor record against the Roosters, they should still get the job done.
