For the flag
Jack Boshen is another to return to the club after time away and is a strong oneon-one defender, helping Minyip-murtoa concede a league-best 47 points a game.
While welcoming old players back into the fold has proven a winning tactic for the Burras, so has recruiting brothers Tim and Ben Mcintyre from the Kowreenaracoorte-tatiara Football League.
Both former league best and fairest winners in the KNTFL, the pair has provided class and skill in the midfield and across half forward.
Co-captain Angus Trethowan adds some grunt around the ball and is a dangerous player when he gets going, while Kade Petering is a wildcard on the wing after returning from nearly two years on the sidelines with a knee injury.
Up forward the Burras have one of the top goal-kickers in the league, Brad Inglis, at centre half forward, with Jae Mcgrath and Brayden Ison as deep marking targets.
Delahunty said whatever the outcome of this year’s finals series was, the Burras would appreciate the experience.
“There are a few of us who played in those grand final losses two or three years ago, but I think this year’s success has come from having little expectation,” he said.
“The focus has been on the enjoyment of our football and it will continue to be the focus.”
