TEEN SHOOTS AHEAD
SOUTH Australian netball is at perhaps its lowest ebb in 50 years, but the teenage stars continue to emerge from the local leagues.
The latest to impress is Kangaroo Island teenager Georgie Horjus, who was the dominant player in last weekend’s Netball SA Premier League grand final.
At just 16, Horjus shot 41 goals from 48 attempts to lead Contax to a resounding 34goal win over Garville and claim the Marg Angove Medal for best player on the court.
The SASI scholarship holder has been working hard with SASI coach Jenny Borlase, who is one of SA’s greatest ever goal attacks.
“The feeling playing in a game like that was unreal,” Georgie said.
“And it was a real honour to win the Marg Angove Medal, I couldn’t believe it.”
Horjus has a national under-age squad training camp next month and hopes to be selected in the Southern Force squad, the Adelaide Thunderbirds’ feeder team.
Another week, another profit. Feeling bad for the bookies down at Morphettville.
Don’t quit your day job — those blokes are playing the long game.
Might not be much longer if my form continues.
True, your head might get so big you can’t get through the gates.
Speaking of heads, you seem to get penalised if you put yours over the ball in a game of football. You mean Friday night?
Shocking. I thought you’d like that rule.
This will be good. Can’t say I remember you putting your head over it all that often.
Boom, boom. How about you find a winner?
The SANFL game is a coin toss, but I’ve got a feeling about West Ham.
Another contender for silliest bet of the year. Stop being seduced by the odds.
No West Ham manager has lost his first five games with the club.
Great, I’ll be barracking for history, then.
That’d be right. And North Adelaide.
The Roosters will extend my lead in this competition, which already looks unassailable.
